January Tips

Keith's Corner: Landscaping
Hello, South Florida residents and Happy New Year! With the holiday season officially over, it's time to start looking into what plants you want to incorporate into your landscape. February and March will be here before we know it, and those are the months where you should begin planting. With January comes cooler temperatures, and that means having to protect your landscaping from the cold. On days where the temperatures dip, make sure to cover your plants with plastic or any other material that will allow them to stay warm and out of the wind. 
As always, remember to install your sod green side up!
