6 Landscaping Resolutions for the New Year

Dec 29, 2022 | Landscape Supply, Uncategorized

As we bid adieu to the old year and welcome the new, it’s time to start thinking about goals you want to set and changes you’d like to see. And, for all of you green thumbs out there, it’s also a perfect opportunity to make your landscaping New Year’s resolutions.

By laying out your plans now, you can make your dreams a reality come Springtime.

To that end, here are 6 landscaping resolutions for the New Year.


Landscaping Resolution #1: I Will Turn My Yard Into an Outdoor Oasis

Do you always say that you’ll get around to the big landscaping project “next year?”

Next year is now. Stop putting it off!

Whether you dream of adding a new patio, planting a lush garden, or changing your hardscape, this is the year to turn your yard into the outdoor oasis you’ve always dreamed of.

Landscaping Resolution #2: I Won’t Wait Until Spring

Because plants flourish in the spring, it’s normal for gardeners to put off their garden planning and activities until the snow thaws and the season turns. This year, don’t do that!

Winter is the best time to start planning future landscaping projects.

We advise you to consider:

  • Removing mulch
  • Transplanting shrubs and trees
  • Spraying pre-emergent weed control formula

If you don’t start preparing now—especially if you take on a large project—it may already be too late by the time spring arrives. So, this winter, begin spring planning for your yard early.

Landscaping Resolution #3: I Will Work with a Professional Landscaper

Even if you have the skills and experience to take on a big landscaping project, it’s always wise to work with experienced landscape suppliers and designers. That way, it’s more likely the reality of your finished project will match what you had dreamed.

A landscaper can help you design the perfect backyard space, providing guidance on what plants, features, and design elements will work best in your yard.

You don’t just need to worry about aesthetics. There are also functionality and sustainability to consider. A landscaper will account for various factors like your soil type, personal preferences, and climate to build a personalized design—and a realistic plan for completing it on time.

Landscaping Resolution #4: I Will Add A Fire Pit

Who doesn’t love a cozy fire?

Outdoor fire pits are both a source of warmth and the perfect place for friends and family to hang out. As we’ve discussed previously, there are several fun ways to get the most out of your firepit. Awesome fireside activities include:

  • Roasting s’mores
  • Swapping scary stories
  • Playing music
  • Eating dinner
  • Playing games

Whether you want to build your own fire pit from scratch or simply purchase and install a pre-built fire pit, Kurtz Bros., has the materials and firewood you need to turn the heat up.

Landscaping Resolution #5: I Will Start Ordering Materials Now

Winter is the best time to begin purchasing the materials you’ll use in your yard.

At this point of the year, material demand is at its lowest. That means you’ll have:

  • Practically unlimited access to a wide array of materials, including in bulk quantities
  • The luxury of hand-choosing what you want rather than being left with the scraps
  • Plenty of time for materials with longer lead times to arrive

If you start your shopping now, you won’t regret it.

Landscaping Resolution #6: I Will Add Fertilizer

Fertilizer plays an essential role in your garden planning and landscaping activities.

Healthy plants, trees, and grass need the right nutrition. But each one has different nutritional needs. By purchasing the right fertilizer—a precise formula made specifically for that type of plant—you can ensure that your plants grow healthy and strong.
