Getting Ready For Winter
As Canadians move toward a cold-snap, plenty of property owners
leave their gardens behind. Once the growing season is over, it is easy to
assume that so are your responsibilities in the garden but this just isn’t the case. Setting your
outdoor space up for success means staying ahead of the game. Prepping areas
before the first frost can make all the difference to your property in spring
Things to Consider During the Cold
Caring For Hedges: Shrubs and hedges might be hearty
plants but they still need protection from extreme cold. It is not uncommon to
spot hedges wrapped in burlap or surrounded by fencing. These small measures
can make a huge difference to conditions in spring. In addition to protecting
greenery from the elements, it is important to trim away any problem areas that
might be present. Pruning away broken limbs or diseased areas can only add to a
fresh start in the spring time.
Weeding: Ridding your lawn or garden bed of weeds before
winter helps to limit exposure during the spring. If weeds are left growing
into fall, it only means that as the growing season rolls around they will
spread everywhere and anywhere.
Fertilizing: After a long, hot summer your lawn is very
likely in need of a pick-me-up. Fertilizing grass in fall can help repair
damage that was done by heat but it also helps to combat the effects of winter.
A healthy dose of nutrients might just be enough to keep your lawn going
through frigid temperatures.
