Winter Tips

  • Houseplants. Re-pot houseplants to give them more room to grow. Treat for insects if needed, don't let them get out of control. Fertilize monthly.
  • Grilling. If you are grilling a turkey or ham for the holidays, be sure to use a remote thermometer to monitor the meat and make sure it reaches the appropriate temperature.
    Do you have a cover for your grill? A lot easier removing a cover than wiping off your grill and side table not to mention cleaner.

  • Water Features. check the de-icer on ponds every couple of days if you have fish. Watch for evaporation in ponds and top off as needed.

  • Landscape. Look through yard and look for signs of animal damage to trees or shrubs. Use deterrants if needed.

  • Birding. Birds need water in the winte. Fill your heated birdbath often and place them near your feeder.
