5 Ways to Safeguard Your Winter Lawn
Give your lawn a little TLC with these simple do-it-this-weekend solutions to winter's worst landscape spoilers.
Tree wrap made of corrugated paper helps protect newly planted trees.
Starting at the base, wrap several layers snugly around the trunk, moving upward with generous overlap. Pull the wrap away from the tree as you go for a tight fit. Finish with several layers as the trunk meets the the first layer of branches. Secure it well with tape or twine.
It's important to remove the wrap in early spring. Do this every year until bark begins to roughen, usually in about 3 to 5 years.
