Keep Your Landscape Healthy & Safe For The Winter
We don’t always consider the Fall as a important time to prune plants, shrubs, and tress. Although Fall pruning won’t encourage growth in dormant plants and trees, a little maintenance now will go a long way next spring. Fall maintenance will not only neaten your landscaping, but also protect it for the coming winter. Here are a few important fall maintenance tips that will keep your landscape safe and healthy for the winter season.
- Remove dead annuals.
- Deadhead spent blooms, and cut back dead ornamental grasses and perennials.
- Lightly prune dead and dying branches from shrubs and trees. Carefully remove dried blossoms from hydrangea, but don’t remove dead-looking stalks, where new buds will form in spring.
- After the first frost, cut back tea roses to about a third of their height.
