Are you wondering what you should and should NOT do with your yard this winter? The cold snaps in Delaware can be hard on the trees and plants in your yard. Many homeowners are unaware of simple tasks they can do to protect their lawn investment during the colder months. The team at Sussex Tree can recommend what you should prioritize and what to avoid until the start of spring. 

Do’s and Don’ts for Yard Care in the Winter 

Don’t allow winter pests to damage your trees and plants. Winter pests include the Spotted Lanternfly and the Spongy Moth, among others. Use our Diagnostic Tool if you are concerned about a sick plant this winter.

Don’t allow hard frosts to kill young plants. Shield any new additions, such as infant trees, with a plastic or cloth covering. Move potted plants into a garage or shed temporarily.

Do remove fallen or broken limbs. It’s safest and best to remove damaged branches to a compost or scrap pile immediately.

Do plan ahead for services your lawn may need, new plant additions to your property or any trees or shrubs that might need to be removed. Map out your possibilities with a free quote from Sussex Tree. Plush, healthy landscaping adds beauty and value to one of your most important assets, your home.
