Protect Your Landscape From Wintry Weather

Winter wonderland could be just around the corner, and with that comes possible hazards to your landscape. Whether your new trees will be at risk from the harsh temperatures, or your Lake of the Ozarks landscape is in danger from the high levels of salt that will be spread, we want to make sure that you know who to call to keep your yard looking fabulous. Here are a few things that you can do, and we can help with, to keep your yard thriving through the winter.

Inspect Newly Planted Trees

If you find a crack in the landscape, be sure to fill it quickly with earth. Cracks can expose the sensitive root systems to the harsh weather.

Water The Landscape Heavily

Did you know that moist soil holds more heat than dry soil? If you water you plants before a frost, it will not only give them the moisture they need but prevent the front from penetrating as deeply! If you need help with any maintenance, Paradise Landscaping is the best landscape maintenance team at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Wrapping Plants and Small Trees

Below freezing temperatures can be especially hard on your plants, bushes and trees. After we've cared for your backyard paradise all summer, we want to make sure that your landscape continues to stay safe through the winter as well. Add extra protection from the wind and cold by wrapping them in burlap or frost protection fabric.

Pruning Tree Branches

Pruning your trees in the winter is important because of the heavy snow and ice that we can receive. The extra weight can cause branches to break, which will hurt the tree in the long run. If you have any questions about pruning, be sure to contact a professional.

Preparing for Wind

The wind can be one of the especially damaging traits of winter. Make sure that all potted plants, outdoor furniture, awnings and other items are stored or secured safely through the winter.

Protecting Plants From Salt

The salt that is used for your sidewalks can cause damage to your plants. If any of your plants are in an area that is at risk, you can cover them with burlap for extra protection.
