Are Your Shrubs Prepared for the First Frost? Cumming , GA
Shrubs warped with tarp in order to protect them from low temperatures.

When freezing temperatures are expected in Georgia, we bring our pets inside and unpack our winter coats and gloves. But what about your landscape? Beyond winterizing your irrigation system, you may also need to prepare your shrubs and bushes for plunging temperatures. Though freezing weather is not long-lasting or too common in our southern state, it can shock our plants and even ruin them for their springtime emergence if we don’t give them some TLC.

Preparing Bushes for Winter

Your bushes or shrubs certainly won’t demand a lot in the winter months. But that doesn’t mean they are exempt from damage. Before the first frost, follow these easy steps to help protect your bushes and shrubs against the extreme weather:

  • Inspect for any broken or damaged branches.
  • Trim dead and dying leaves to help open their canopies and foster better air circulation.
  • Lay mulch around the base for insulation.
  • Consider covering your shrubs with a blanket or tarp if temps get extremely cold.
  • Turn off irrigation system.

Winterizing your bushes or lawn is not a difficult task to do on your own, but if you lack the confidence or time, we are happy to do the job for you. Call Everlast Lawns and Landscapes today to learn more about preparing your landscape for the coldest days of winter in Georgia. It only takes one hard freeze to ruin your plants and sabotage your plans for a vibrant spring landscape.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
