Clean Up Debris Around Your Garden
Winter is a season of wind and rain, and at some point, you’ll probably hear a strong gust of wind pass through your garden. If you want to make sure that your garden doesn’t become littered with all sorts of debris, it’s important to clean up around your garden now before it becomes too difficult to do so.
Insulate Your Plants
Winter is a harsh season, and it can be extremely cold, especially in areas that experience cold winters. If you want to ensure that your plants and flowers survive the cold weather, it’s a good idea to invest in winter insulation for your plants.
When choosing the best type of winter protection for your plants, it’s best to opt for something that is breathable. Blocks of styrofoam, for example, can keep your plants warm, but they don’t allow adequate airflow so the temperatures inside your pots and planters could become too hot.
Care For Your Lawn
If you have a lawn, it’s a good idea to care for it before winter hits. It’s important to mow your lawn regularly and water it as infrequently as possible to prevent it from turning brown and dying.
You can also use a mulching lawn mower to cut down on the amount of fallen leaves and other plant matter that collects in your lawn. During and after winter, you can also use a snow removal service for your lawn.
