The popularity of gardening and landscaping has exploded during the coronavirus pandemic. Limited in our activities, we turned to tomatoes, herbs and butterfly gardens to pass the time and calm our anxiety. But cooler days are on the horizon, and soon we will need to tuck in our lawns and gardens for a long winter’s nap. As we say goodbye to summer veggies and blooms, askHRgreen.org has tips for preparing your yard for the winter season ahead.
Just as we found solace in the garden with our summer planting frenzy, so too can we find comfort in a quiet winter landscape. As the writer William Blake said, “In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.” For more tips on all things green, visit www.askHRgreen.orgAbout askHRgreen.org askHRgreen.org is your go-to resource for all things green in Hampton Roads – from recycling tips and pointers for keeping local waterways clean to water-saving ideas and simple steps to make local living easy on the environment.
