More Tips for Winter Lawn & Garden Care

It’s snowing!  Here are a few tips to take care of your lawn, trees and other outdoor plants when it snows.

  • Be careful to avoid spreading salt near shrubs or other plants.  Sand or sawdust are more environmentally-friendly options for curing those slick walkways, providing friction without the addition of chemicals into the ground.
  • If it does snow a lot, try to brush the snow off of any evergreen branches in your yard as the weight of the snow or ice may cause serious damage to your tree.
  • Make sure to brush the snow off of evergreen trees as soon as possible after a big snowstorm as the accumulating snow can cause serious damage to the branches. This can be done easily with a broom.

We hope that these little suggestions will help make taking care of your outdoors a little easier this winter.  Let us know if you have any questions and we’d be happy to help!
