Shrub protection

This is the time of year to prepare your shrubs for the harsh winter ahead. Most shrubs can deal with the winter weather on their own but some require special consideraion. Shrubs near walkways, under eaves or anywhere that will have excess snow will need to be tied or sheltered from the elements so they do not bare the brunt of extra snow weight. Evergreens in windy areas should also be covered to block the wind. This will help keep them green.

Lower cutting height.

This time of year we normally mow our lawns shorter which helps allow leaves to blow off easier and it also deters diseases and mold over the winter months.
