Landscape Maintenance During Winter

Winter

Some of you look upon that beautiful shrubbery and gaze into its beauty while sitting on a chair on the lawn of your own customized landscape. You take care of it; you put love into it, but how further are you willing to go to maintain the landscape’s beauty? You’ll eventually realize that winter will be knocking on your porch and asking for permission to suck the life out of your precious garden and plants.

But you don’t have to comply because you are going to be prepared for this upcoming winter. The primary cause of damage for plants and other landscape elements isn’t the frozen soil, or a cold water, but in fact, it’s the wind. During the winter, the wind changed its temperature drastically because of its intense violent speed and lowered atmospheric temperature that feel like cold blades slashing on your skin. That is how the plants, the garden, and every single living green thing from your landscape feels.

Maybe you are already frozen in fear but make sure you take these next steps into consideration for when you decide to prepare for the upcoming harsh winter temperatures.

First, acquire sacks that are made from a cloth material (the denser, the better) and make sure to have plenty of them of any size and for every single plant. If the sacks are a bit thinner on the material, then you can quickly put another one on top of it. But first, let’s make sure that you have enough sacks.

Secondly, get some wire and start creating a loose cage for every single plant that you own in your beloved landscape. The purpose of the cages is to create a frame that will support the above-mentioned sack’s weight and avoid crushing the plants.

The third and last step is for when the snow starts gathering at the base of the plants and trees, it will be recommended to take a shovel and start cleaning the area so that the snow won’t reach high heights and start suffocating the plants.

This might seem like a lot to do, but it’s for the best for keeping your landscape healthy and alive during the winter and onto spring.
