With the arrival of fall and winter right around the corner, you may have started thinking about what you can do to make sure that your landscaping will stay in good health. If you have a lot of shrubs in your yard that you’re worried about with the drop in temperature, you’ll need to take some time to look into what you can do to make sure that they stay healthy.

Provide Your Shrubs with Nutrition

Shrub fertilization and the right nutritional supplements added to watering or directly to their soil can be a great move. With the decrease in temperature, it can be more difficult for your shrubs to stay healthy. Supplementing your shrubs with the right nutrition can make them more robust and help you avoid leaving your shrubs in bad health.

Cover Shrubs to Avoid Chilling

Another great way to keep your shrubs healthy when it’s getting colder is to cover the shrubs entirely. Using burlap covers to cover the shrubs can help them retain heat better and can do a great job of keeping the shrubs from getting too cold. Buying the right covers for the shrubs can prevent them from getting too cold and can allow you to uncover them months later with the ability to return them to great health.

Consider Relocating Shrubs

In some cases, you may want to consider relocating the shrubs in your yard. Moving them somewhere that they would get more sunlight or would be covered by a canopy to prevent snow from falling on them can help keep them in their best health.

Taking care of your shrubs can help ensure that they don’t need to be removed later due to bad health. Contact us to learn more about our shrub care programs and how to keep your shrubs healthy during the cold weather season.
