Freeze Alert!

Freeze Alert!The first freeze of the season is expected for DFW later this week so get prepared today!

  1. Water - Unless your yard is already wet, thoroughly water all of your plantings (lawn, landscape plantings, flowerbeds, trees, containers). Water early enough in the day so leaves dry by nightfall, or whenever the real cold starts blowing in.

  2. Cover any tender plants with frost cloth. We have a good supply in stock.

  3. Move tropical plants indoors.

  4. Mulch flowerbeds and landscape plantings so you have at least 2 inches of mulch on the soil.

  5. Detach waterhoses from faucets and make sure outdoor faucets are firmly turned off and covered. Turn your sprinkler system off if it's still on automatic.

Stayed tuned to local news stations for weather updates and see Preparing your Yard for Freezing Weather for helpful tips to protect your plants.
