Weather Alert

Winter is here, Chicago, and it's time to make sure your landscapes are ready for the cold season ahead. A few tips from our experts: be sure to wrap your arborvitaes to protect them from the wind and snow; make sure your leaves are picked up to avoid potential icy hazards; shut down and put away fountains and/or fountain pumps and clean out and prepare your bird feeders for winter visitors.
