Landscaping Tips for Before a Storm
Secure your trees.
Smaller, young trees are more easily knocked over by strong winds. Even though your trees may already be staked to the ground, pound the stakes even more into the ground to further secure your tree to the ground.
Trim your branches near the power lines.
One of the main issues that can happen during a storm is losing powers. One of the causes of that can be branches falling down and destroying power lines. To try and prevent this from happening, have your branches trimmed ahead of time so they are too short to fall on to your power lines.
Be sure your fountains and other water features are unplugged.
Forgetting to unplug your fountains or any other water features can result in them getting fried by lightning. Long before the storm hits, secure all electrical chords and unplug any and all water features.
Keep your gutters free of debris.
Your gutters being clogged during a heavy rainstorm can amount to even more problems. Get your gutters cleaned before the storm or hire a professional landscaping company in Camden County to do it for you.
Stay up to date on the weather.
Check the forecast and know what is expected with the weather. You may consider installing a weather application on your phone. Typically you will get notifications as to when bad weather is expected to come. There are several options to choose from, such as KY3 or KSPR Weather for example. You can list your location, so the application knows where to target your weather forecasting.
