If you haven’t prepared your property for winter to protect your curb appeal, no worries, completing a few fall landscaping chores will do just the trick.

Spread Mulch
Spread up to 3 inches of mulch around your shrubs and trees to protect roots from frost and help retain moisture during the bitterly cold and dry winter.

Remove the dead and dying
Prune dead and dying branches from shrubs and trees, and carefully remove dried blossoms from hydrangeas. Be, sure to leave those stalks that look dead, new buds will begin to form in spring.

Also, don’t forget to cut back dead and dried up ornamental grasses and perennials.

Wrap Delicate Shrubs
Cover your plants, and shrubs, with burlap to protect from heavy snow, ice and high winds.
