Prepping Makes Perfect: What You Can Do Now to Get Your Plants Ready for Winter

As winter approaches, it’s time to start thinking about preparing your outdoor plants. Fall is the perfect time to make plans, so you and your outdoor space are ready for whatever winter throws your way! The combination of cold temperatures and harsh winds can be tough on plants. As we prepare for this winter, give your plants some extra protection in the following ways.

Mulching in the Dormant Season

If your like most landscape contractors, you did a double take when you read that. Who mulches in the fall and winter? The answer may surprise you: More and more of your colleagues are changing their programs and mulching from mid-October through April, and they’re reaping the benefits. By moving this job to the cooler months, they’re reducing damage to the plants, as well as increasing weed suppression.

Evergreen Trees and Other Plants for Privacy

Privacy trees are a great investment – they make front and back yards feel more homey and comfortable, and outdoor entertaining feels more comfortable when you’ve got some privacy from neighbors. Privacy trees are also great for shielding front windows if you keep your curtains open for your plants! Whether you have a small front yard in the city or sprawling field in the country, there are plenty of evergreen trees and plants for privacy in suit landscapes of any size.
