Seasonal News

Winter News


Here are a few helpful reminders as you work outside this winter to help keep your lawn in the best shape possible and to reduce damage to it.

  • Use a broom to brush snow away from evergreen trees gently, to keep the weight from breaking the limbs
  • If ice or snow does break tree limbs, have the limbs removed as soon as weather permits – damaged trees are prone to disease
  • Putting markers at the edge of your lawn will help you avoid damaging it when you’re shoveling snow 
  • Avoid walking on frosted or snow-covered lawns
  • Use only non-salt de-icers for sidewalks and driveways, so the runoff doesn’t harm plants 
  • Salt will damage grass, perennials, and shrubs, and will keep the plants from absorbing much-needed water
