- November Blog | Ken-Mulch
It's November We all know what that means... Now starts the cold holiday season here at Ken-Mulch! It is not quite Christmas yet, but that does not mean you do not have to work on your lawn and garden! Keeping Your Grass Healthy Raking leaves over and over can be tedious and annoying, but if you want to keep your grass healthy throughout the late fall and winter season; rake up those leaves!!! Fallen leaves are not good for your grass, so if you would like your grass to be green and healthy in the spring, Ken-Mulch suggests raking and throwing out the fallen leaves. If You Decide to Plant Something New If you do decide to plant anything new in the month of November, here are some helpful tips that will ensure that your plants, trees, and shrubs will survive through the winter. Insulating Your Plants During the cold winter months, insulating your plants with mulch or rock is a must to keep your trees, plants and shrubs alive. Wrapping Your Trees Wrapping your trees is essential during the winter. Wrapping your trees protects it from deer rubs and frost cracking which could totally ruin your trees trunk. Going out and buying a roll of burlap and spraying the trunk with anti- desiccant spray can make a huge difference. You Still Have To Water, But Be Careful! Even though it is cold, you still need to water your plants a little bit. After you water though, make sure all of the water in the hose is gone to prevent water freezing and ruining your hose. Trim, Trim, Trim! November is the perfect time to cut everything back for next spring. Things you need to cut back this time of year are roses, perennials and shrubs that have gone wild. Clean Your Tools! Cleaning and oiling your tools can help you in many ways. It can save you a whole lot of money because if you clean your tools, you will not have to worry about the tools rusting or cracking during the winter. Happy Thanksgiving!
