How to Winterize Your Yard

Dec. 12th, 2018

If you’re worried about how your plants will fare during the coming winter, fear not; there is a simple and effective method of shielding your plants from both the winter winds, and also any foraging animals that may happen across them.

The first thing you’ll need to do is to grab some wooden stakes (three to four should be sufficient), and drive them into the ground around the plant. Next, you’ll want to create a burlap covering that will be large enough to wrap itself around the stakes twice. As you wrap the burlap around the stakes, be sure to move any branches or leaves out of the way to avoid accidental breakage.

Once the burlap is positioned, tie it down with either rope or twine. Be sure not to pull too tightly, as you’ll risk damaging the plant.

Now you’re done and your plants are safe for the coming winter.
