Winter Yard Prep

  • Cut back stems of perennials
  • Remove annuals from their plant beds
  • Remove all debris that fungi may try to make home for the winter
  • Redistribute old mulch and refine your plant bed edges.
  • Remove moldy or root filled mulch
  • Add a layer of mulch to plant beds – especially those that are less likely to be covered in snow
  • Protect the tender bark of young trees from gnawing critters by wrapping stems or trunks with wire or commercial tree-guard products.
