Redwood City, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) January 18, 2011
One of the great things about living in the San Francisco Bay Area is that winter doesn’t mean the end of gardening. There are many delicious vegetables and colorful flowers that thrive in cool, rainy weather. There are also many cover crops that beautify while providing nutrients to the soil. And the rainy season makes maintaining a garden easy. Delgado’s Landscaping of Redwood City has been in the Bay Area landscape design, services, and gardening business long enough to know that maintaining your garden during the winter months is crucial to having success for the coming spring.
“Most people see winter as a time to close down the garden and wait until the spring to start up gardening activities again,” says the owner of Delgado’s, “But there are plenty of things you can do through the fall and winter months to continue enjoying the pleasures of gardening.”
There are a host of vegetables that thrive in a cooler climate. Winter garden design can include onions, peas, potatoes, broccoli, and carrots. Juniper, lavender, and pansies can all provide a pop of color as they bloom during the winter. In addition to a garden landscape, growing cover crops can improve the soil for next season. Crops such as clover, rye, and vetch are excellent for serving this purpose.
Winter is also a great time to plan the garden and landscape for the next year. A good Palo Alto landscaping service can provide lawn and garden consultation and offer tips to maintaining a garden landscape all year round.
Finally, the rainy winter months decrease the amount of daily maintenance needed to grow a healthy garden. A writer for Kitchen Garden Magazine found this out the first time he planted a winter garden: “Maintaining my winter garden was remarkably easy. I had to water regularly during August, September, and October, but once temperatures cooled off and the winter rains came, I didn’t water at all.”
