Tips to Avoid Frost Damage to Your Landscape

Our landscape management services take us to a lot of commercial properties around our area and we always get the same question from our clients when it starts to get colder, “How do I protect my plantings at home?”. whether it is a late fall chill or early spring freeze, a little frost can be deadly to many plants. Tender seedlings, newly planted flowers, shrubs and trees and even established plants in areas that are not used to cold are at risk when the temperatures dip. Fortunately, there are easy steps you can take when a cold front approaches to be sure your plants stay toasty warm.

Advantages of Mulching

Mulch installation is one of the best things you can do for your garden. This consist of placing a protective barrier (mulch) around your plants and over your bare soil. This protective barrier can be made up of a variety of decomposing organic materials, including bark or wood chips (from various tree species) and pine needles on some southern states or non-decomposing, non-organic materials such as black plastic, landscaping fabric, recycled tires, pebbles, and river rock.

Regardless of the ebb and flow of our local temperatures, spring will be here before you know it and that means your landscaper is probably on your property already working.

Nothing says spring like the sound of leaf blowers humming on your property, especially after a few warm sunny days…
