The benefits of snow to plants in the Grand Rapids MI area

Benefits of snow to plants in Grand Rapids MIBe Thankful for the Little Things… Snow Cover is a Good!

I’ve been thinking lately about the frigid temperatures that we are enduring this winter. That crunchy, grinding noise the snow makes when you walk in it lasts all day. This used to be something that was enjoyed only in the predawn hours.

The good snow cover that we have is VERY beneficial to our plants!

  • Snow is a great insulator of the soil, keeping temperatures higher underground.
  • Snow cover can protect plant roots from cold related damage.
  • Snow cover protects plant foliage from wind burn.

So even though you may grumble about the snow now, your spring flowering bulbs, perennials and woody ornamentals will thank you later.

What landscapers do when they aren’t plowing?

What do landscapers do when they aren’t plowing snow?

NMLA-SealNEWWinter is traditionally the time for us to work on equipment, to make sure everything is running well and looking good for spring. At MLM we are doing some of that between snowfalls.

Just as important and maybe even more so is the time that we spend planning for the next landscaping season. During this past week the Michigan Nursery and Landscape Association held its annual convention in Lansing. This event was an excellent way to expand our creative and technical skills. There were also many seminars that focused on the business side of our trade.

As we look forward to spring, we are putting some of this week’s lessons into practice in ways that will benefit our clients and their landscapes.
