Outside Winter Maintenance

February 10th, 2016 11:49 AM by

Prior to winter's arrival, we always prepare our vehicles for winter, check and maintain our home heating system, and so on. How often do you consider winter maintenance for your deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs, though? If there has not been any precipitation for 4 to 6 weeks and the ground is not frozen or snowy, water your deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs.

A good rule of thumb: If the temperature is above 40 degrees, you can water.  It is recommended when watering to do so early in the day before the temperature starts to drop as it normally does later in the day. In winter, extreme dry conditions can be more damaging than the extreme cold.
