Winter has arrived! One way to protect your investment and the beauty of your landscape is to ensure your plants are well protected from the harsh winter elements.
DiSabatino Landscaping offers winter preparation services in many areas including Greenville, Hockessin, Kennett Square and West Chester. Their team of experts, including a plant health care specialist and a certified arborist recommend the following measures:
Covering Plants: An effective way to protect plants in freezing temperatures, is to install stakes and burlap. This protects them from high winds that whisk away moisture in the leaves and heavy snow fall that can cause breakage. It is important to remove the burlap when temperatures are consistently over 40 degrees.
- Mulch Installation: Mulch helps contain moisture and nutrients that are quickly lost in colder temperatures. Mulch should be installed at about 2 inches deep, however, be sure to keep it about an inch away from the trunk of the tree or shrub, to prevent suffocation.
- Containers: Store container plants indoors during the winter months and continue regular watering.
Some trees and shrubs require special attention, like broadleaf evergreens and arborvitaes; while others are naturally equipped to survive harsh elements. If you’re uncertain about your plants’ durability, talk to DiSabatino Landscaping’s plant health care specialists.
