Get Your Garden Ready for Winter

The fall season brings many things. The leaves change color, and the crisp, cold weather is setting in. One thing that is not fun about this time of year is that it becomes harder (and sometimes impossible) to tend your garden or landscape. Fall necessitates calling to acquire landscaping services or doing the work yourself.

Now is when you should start preparing for winter. This may sound early, but getting your landscaped yard and garden ready for winter is better, so you don't have a nasty surprise come springtime. You can do several things yourself to help your garden prepare for winter.

Rake up and Dispose of Dead Leaves

First, remove all of the dead foliage from your plants and trees. This will ensure they have a better chance of staying warm through the winter. Once you have removed all the damaged leaves and branches, rake up any fallen leaves that remain on the ground.

If you get snow where you live, this is also an excellent time to remove the leaves that will end up covered with snow. It's best to get it out of the way now, so they don't kill your plants once winter hits.

Rake up everything on the ground, including leaves and dead plants or trees. You should also clean out animals' homes in the landscape if they're still around.


Fertilizing everything is another thing you can do. This may seem counterintuitive, but fertilizing your plants before winter gives them a boost of nutrients that will help during the cold months. This also helps keep the plants from getting damaged come springtime.


You can add more mulch to landscapes to help insulate your plants and keep any remaining leaves on the ground from killing what's underneath them. You can also add a layer of hay or compost to help keep any remaining leaves from getting into your garden beds when the snow starts to fall.

Check Trees and Shrubs for Weak Points

Trees and shrubs need special attention in the fall. This means checking for any weak branches that may break once it snows, adding mulch if you don't have enough under them, and pruning any dead branches. Pruning will also help the tree/shrub get a better energy source during the winter.

Make a Plan for Snow Removal

Finally, if you live where it snows, you must plan to remove it from your landscape. This may require you to hire a landscaper to do the work for you. 

For walkways and areas where people drive/park, use salt or calcium chloride so the snow will melt. So be sure to have a bag or two on hand.
