Topic: Cold Damage

Protecting your landscape should be on everyone’s mind during our cold winter season. Cold temperatures can be very devastating to your landscape when left unprotected. Winds and cold temperatures can cause freeze damage to limbs, leaves and roots. It is very important to mulch and protect tender plants and shrubs soon if you have not already. Mulch can help lessen the impact of harsh winds and temperatures for all plants in the landscape. Water is also a key factor to maintain your landscape during the winter. Winter is typically a dry season here in the D/FW area. We do occasionally get rain and snow, but it should not be the only watering the landscape receives during the winter. Supplemental watering once or twice every few weeks should be sufficient if we do not receive rain or snow. How do you protect your landscape from the winter weather?
