Winter Weatherization Check List


[ ]Container growing shrubs should be dug into the ground or protected with mulch; otherwise root damage may occur

[ ]Clean up any vegetable garden debris and prepare ground for next season

[ ]Roses should be lightly pruned; dirt mounded up around the root graft; climbing rose shoots re-secured

[ ]Evergreens can be trimmed if needed, but flowering ones should be pruned in late spring

[ ]Leaves from final clean-up could be used as mulch in your shrub beds.

[ ]Leaves must not be left on top of your lawn during the winter. The grass will be smothered

[ ]Lawns should be cut until they stop growing entirely; left at two to two and a half inches for the winter

[ ]Irrigation systems should be blown out and turned off to prevent pipes from cracking and more severe system damage

[ ]If you plan to get a live holiday tree this year, dig a hole for it before the ground freezes. Keep the dirt indoors; insulate the hole by filling it with leaves so you'll be able to plant even when the ground is frozen.
