“There is not much going on in the landscape this time of year, says Deaton, t there are a few impactful things that you can do. For example, now is the time to start thinking about crepe myrtles. I also recommend cutting back ornamental grass and liriope at the end of winter.
Pruning ornamental and smaller trees right now is also beneficial says Deaton, you should be pruning trees to shape and also remove low or unwanted limbs; this raises and helps maintain the on trees and shrubs that have become overgrown.”
