Preparing your Yard for a Freeze!

Protect your GardenWhen freezing weather is expected, get your landscape prepared in advance to minimize damage to your plants!

  • 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.
  • Cover any tender plants with Frost Cloth. If in doubt about a plant's cold hardiness, just go ahead and cover it! We have a good supply of Frost Cloth in stock and it is reusable.
  • Move potted plants indoors or to sheltered area if possible. If not, cover tender plants with Frost Cloth.
  • Mulch flowerbeds and landscape plantings so you have at least 2 inches of mulch on the soil.
  • 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.

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

If you have any questions, please call us at (972) 475-5888 and press 2 for the Garden Center. We'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
