Some general things that you are going to want to keep in mind when taking care of your lawn in Pueblo are that you want to make sure that your soil is healthy.
What you Need to Know about Pueblo’s Climate
Pueblo sits in the high desert area terrain of Southern Colorado. It doesn’t get a lot of moisture during the year, so the plants that survive in the area have to be able to survive without a lot of moisture. During the winter, they will get snow, but due to the elevation of Pueblo. The good news it, because of Pueblo’s high elevation and overwhelmingly high number of days with sunshine they receive, every year, the snows won’t typically stay on the ground for that long. With the abundance of sunshine that Pueblo gets every year, but the lack of moisture and rainfall, this climate zone has a particular breed of plants and trees that are unique to the region.
A healthy, well-tended lawn is a beautiful thing, but like any planting, it can experience a variety of problems. Chewing insects, like grasshoppers, may attack grass blades, and burrowing critters, like gophers, may munch through grass roots and cause green tops to die. It’s not too difficult to spot dying patches of lawn. It is often a challenge, though, to detect what is causing the problem and how to treat it. Learn about common lawn pests and the symptoms they cause, along with some tips on treating the problem.
Today more than ever before, the landscaping industry is moving forward in a greener direction. As you know, recycling has made its way into the landscape instead of the landfill. Tires have become pathways, planter beds, mulch and playground ground cover.
Lawn clippings are being made into compost to become food for your lawn and garden. Using Biodegradable two-stroke oils for leaf blowers and trimmers, coupled with propane-powered equipment is reducing emissions.
New techniques in lawn care help to promote beautiful lawns while minimizing water and fertilizer usage. Organic fertilizers reduce demand on products that are produced with fossil fuels and chemicals while increasing the demand for recycled products.
