Thanks to the brilliant individuals working at NASA who conducted the Clean Air Study, we now have strong evidence stating plants are extremely effective at removing harmful chemicals from your household. Chemicals that include benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia.

All of which have been linked to negative health effects like headaches, dizziness, eye irritation, and others.

Prune gently

Aside from aesthetic appearances, pruning helps promote vigorous growth and encourages shrubs to produce more flowers and fruit. Pruning can also help promote air circulation, which will help prevent disease and insect pest infestations.

Pruning timing depends on the type of plant. For most deciduous shrubs, early fall pruning is best limited to light thinning cuts, as shearing off the tops of plants promotes new, tender growth that won't harden off in time for winter and can be damaged by the cold. (Thinning cuts involve cutting a lateral branch all the way back to the main branch, as opposed to shearing the outer shape of the shrub.)

It's best to wait until late fall or winter when plants are dormant to do any heavier pruning, although you can remove damaged, diseased or dead branches and suckers any time of year. Fall is also a good time to trim long rose canes, which can be damaged by winter winds.

Note that summer-blooming deciduous shrubs, ideally, should pruned in late winter or early spring and spring-blooming deciduous shrubs should be pruned in the late spring after flowers have dropped.

When pruning and doing other fall cleanup-chores, be sure to save trimmings and leaves for the compost pile. Use a chipper/shredder to break up large or tough branches and help them decompose faster. Remember to exercise caution when using chippers, pruning tools and saws.

Here are three signs that it could be time to aerate your yard:

Your lawn is thinning. If your yard seems to be thinning and you can't trace any other obvious cause, such as a new source of shade or watering changes, the reason may be soil compaction.

Lawn fertilizer doesn't do much good anymore. When soil is highly compacted, the lawn fertilizer nutrients are unable to reach the roots of grass. If you fertilize but don't see much in the way of results, you may have overly compacted soil.

You have a lot of runoff. Overly compacted soil doesn't absorb water as well as soil with space between particles. If you're starting to see more runoff than normal, and more rain or irrigation isn't the cause, you may need to aerate.

Winter’s cold, dreary days are the most splendid days for daydreaming. Many people find distraction and solace in planning outdoor projects that will commence with the warmer, kinder days of spring. Planning now will save precious time later, particularly if painting, staining or planting is involved.


Between bouts of studying plant catalogs and thinking about the upcoming spring lawn-care, take time to consider a larger issue: How well does your home actually fit into your landscape? If the question makes you cringe because your home looks like it landed upon, rather than sprang up from, your landscape, it may be time to plan that springtime course of action. Let’s tackle this together.
