Our Own Hometown
Take steps now to protect and nurture your valuable lawn, gardens, shrubs, and trees during the harsh months of winter.
Very Important - don’t forget to fertilize your gardens, lawn and trees. Applying a winterizing fertilizer will supply the nutrients your landscaping needs to survive and develop stronger root growth.
First of all, cut your grass to at least 4" to protect it from cold, ice, and snow. Then overseed with a blend of ryegrass, fescue, and bluegrass to strengthen the root system and produce a stronger and healthier germination in the spring.
CONTROL SHRUB AND TREE PESTS
Treat shrubs and trees with a dormant horticultural oil spray to maintain control of pests, including aphids, scale, and tent caterpillars.
APPLY ANIMAL REPELLANTS
Animals can be very destructive in winter. Apply deer, rabbit and squirrel repellant to your shrubs and young trees to protect them from becoming a tasty snack for winter foraging wildlife.
KILL WEEDS WITH HERBICIDE
Control weeds by spot treating with a broadleaf herbicide. This will also help by significantly reducing springtime proliferation.
Protect your plants from harsh weather. Wait until after a hard freeze, then spread mulch around the base of shrubs and trees. Don't heap mulch around tree trunks, and keep mulch 1 to 2 inches away from woody stems.
Spread compost everywhere. Winter rains and snow melt will work the beneficial microbes and nutrients down into the soil.
Control lawn and garden pests by applying insecticide treatments for grubs, cutworms, armyworms, sod webworms, ticks, fleas, and chinch bugs.
INSULATE WITH STRAW
Straw is good at trapping air, making it an effective soil insulator. A layer of straw protects soil from temperature fluctuations, and plants or bulbs from extreme cold.

SUDDEN OAK DEATH DISEASE DETECTED IN OHIO
Sudden Oak Death Disease has devastated oaks and other trees in California and Oregon. Now cases of the disease have been found in Ohio after the pathogen causing the disease was brought into Ohio on rhododendron and lilac plants sold at Walmart and Rural King stores.
The disease can kill oak, other tree species, and woody ornamentals like rhododendron, Viburnum, and Pieris.
Signs of the disease can include leaf spots, shoot dieback, and cankers on tree trunks, which eventually lead to the death of the tree or plant.
Anyone who purchased rhododendron or lilac plants from Walmart or Rural King between March and May should immediately dispose of the plants in a way to prevent further spread of the disease.
This can be done by burning, deep burial or double-bagging the plant — including the root ball — in heavy duty trash bags for disposal. To prevent further spreading, do not compost.
Garden tools used on infected plants must be sanitized with bleach or 91% or higher alcohol before they are used again.
To report infected plants:
Ohio Department of Agriculture Division of Plant or 614.728.6400.
