Winter Lawn Tips

Winter Lawn Tips

In the winter months, most people aren’t thinking too much about their lawns and gardens. Instead, many are focusing on putting up holiday lights and staying warm by the fire. Keeping your gardening and landscaping in good shape while it’s cold out will make for an even better looking yard in the spring, though. Continuing our series on tips for taking care of your yard this winter, here are a few more ways to improve your outdoor space when it’s cold out.

Keep the debris under control
If you’ve been keeping up with raking, this shouldn’t be too difficult. You’re going to want to keep leaves and other debris off your lawn and away from your plants. One option is to mulch your leaves with a lawn mower and use the mulch in your flowerbeds. Either way, we recommend leaf removal for the health of your lawn.

Use what you’ve grown!
You spend the year growing beautiful plants and trees – now is the time to bring some of that indoors so you get a little bit of green all year long. If you have a spruce or fir tree, you can always use the clippings to make fresh smelling centerpieces and wreaths. Holly is also great this time of year.

Stock up on kitty litter, sand or sawdust
While salt melts ice efficiently, it’s not great for the environment. Runoff from melting snow can damage your lawn or garden. Avoid this by using alternatives that melt snow and ice just as well without the adverse effects.

Fertilize your lawn for the last time
If you’re trying to get the greenest lawn in your neighborhood next year, you should use winter fertilizer one more time shortly before Christmas. After that, it’s best to let Mother Nature run her course.

Keep watering your plants
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean that your plants don’t need water. You don’t have to go overboard with watering, but make sure that you’re helping out, especially during warm periods.

Bel Air ALDI Announces Grand Opening Date

The ALDI store in Bel Air is opening soon at the Bel Air Plaza, with a ribbon-cutting, giveaways and more planned.

BEL AIR, MD — In two weeks, the anchor space that has been vacant for nearly two years in the shopping center on US 1 at MD 24 will be up and running with a new grocer.  ALDI will open at the Bel Air Plaza on Thursday, Jan. 19.

The anchor space in the Bel Air Plaza has sat vacant since Mars closed in January 2015. To celebrate the new ALDI store, several activities are planned.  First, there will be a ceremonial ribbon-cutting. Once the store opens its doors, the first 100 shoppers to enter will receive "golden tickets," or ALDI gift cards of various amounts. On opening day, all shoppers can enter a sweepstakes to win produce for a year. The store is also planning to give away product samples and distribute eco-friendly bags on its first day in business.
