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.
Protect tender newly planted and exposed plants from the wind with a simple barrier of burlap, ground cloth, or row covering (sold at nurseries) stapled to sturdy posts.

Larger specimen plants can be wrapped in their entirety with burlap, cinched, and secured with twine.
