The climate in our area can have quite a few upsides, and many residents would likely say they can’t envision living anywhere else. However, there are a few unique challenges that our particular weather patterns can create. This is especially true in the heart of winter, when many areas in the region can experience weather that is an extreme contrast to the blazing hot environment we experience for most of the year.
While this change in the normal weather conditions we enjoy for much of the year may simply be annoying to us humans, it can be stressful and perhaps even dangerous to trees, flowers and other parts of your landscaping arrangement.
It’s important to be proactive and plan ahead for how you will care for and protect your garden and plants during the colder season. Waiting too long or failing to take sufficient steps to protect your plants and foliage will put their health and longevity at risk.
Obviously, you want to ensure that your greenery doesn’t suffer any stress or damage when the weather conditions change, and you also want to avoid the worst-case scenario of them not surviving until spring.
Shrubs and other types of greenery need to be cared for properly in preparation for winter. Winds can be an especially big threat to delicate plants and trees, particularly the cold winds that Mother Nature likes to inflict upon the area in winter.
Fragile trees and plants need to be well-protected from winter weather, which can involve a variety of tactics. In some cases, certain items may even need to be relocated indoors or to an area where they can be protected from the winter elements.
Enacting a winter-protection plan for your precious trees and plants takes know-how and experience. If you don’t feel confident about your abilities in this area, we can help.
