Helpful tips to consider this month:
- Avoid excessive foot traffic on lawns during winter. Dormant grass crowns can be damaged easily which can kill grass.
- Use caution when using salt and ice melt on driveways and sidewalks this winter. Spread it carefully to avoid damage to shrubs and trees.
- Examine house plants for disease and insects especially if new ones if your received them as gifts. Prune and rotate plants to keep them healthy.
- If you kept poinsettias through the holidays avoid placing them in drafty windows and keep them relatively moist.
