Preparing the garden for the winter

Protect young trees

Strengthen around trees plastic or metal mesh to protect the bark from rodents.The mesh should be attached high enough - above the snow.

not stop to water the plants

until the ground freezes, continue to water the trees, particularly evergreens - they need a good supply of moisture in the winter, because they do not lose their leaves in the cold months getting moisture through evaporation.

Collect fallen leaves

autumn lawn grass still needs to sunlight, so you have to periodically collect fallen leaves.This beneficial effect on the root system, which is important for good growth the following spring. crushed autumn leaves in the winter can be used as mulch for flower beds. Some gardeners leave the dried leaves to feed their birds in winter.
