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.
The shape and character of a plant will help dictate how to protect it from snow and ice. Narrow and columnar plants can be tied together with twine so the weight of precipitation won't split them apart. This can be done within the twiggy structure of the plant so it's almost invisible.
Snow cascading off roofs can have a disasterous effect. Simple snow sheds can be constructed from 2- by 2- inch lumber and outdoor grade plywood. The shed takes the brunt of the snow's weight, saving the plant from being snapped or pulled apart.
