Protect Evergreens in Winter

Add year-round beauty to your landscape with evergreens. These plants are tough, but they can use a little extra protection to make it through the winter months. These tips will help you care for your evergreens all year.

Keep Your Evergreens Safe All Winter

Water Well

Water heavily and consistently in summer and fall to keep your evergreens strong and healthy to combat the winter weather.


Mulch around the base of your evergreens with about 3 to 4 inches of mulch in late fall.

Don't place mulch against the trunk or the stem of the plant.

Stop Leaf Wilt

Protect your needles with an anti-transferrant spray to help retain moisture.

Offer Protection

Build a protective barrier with burlap, wire and stakes.
