Helping Your Plants Survive a March Cold Snap Cumming, GA
seasonal flowers

If you live in Georgia, you’re almost there. We are close upon days of consistent warm temperatures and steady spring weather. However, we all know that March is a time when random cold spells occur, taking us for hours or days back to freezing temperatures. While this can be frustrating for your wardrobe selection, it is equally frustrating and disruptive for your landscape.

If your spring flowers and plants are trying to emerge and a cold snap is predicted, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Follow these simple steps to protect your landscape from the lingering jolts of winter:

  • Provide Cover – protect your plants by covering them at night. Use a sheet, inverted plastic pot or anything else that will effectively shield your plants from the bitter temps.
  • Replenish Your Mulch – mulching helps to keep plants warmer.
  • Bring Them Inside – if you have a potted plant or a tropical plant, consider carrying them indoors until the cold snap passes.
  • Plant Smarter – when you choose your plant and flower varieties, be smart about whether or not they can survive a cold Georgia winter. Pay attention to the areas that have enough sun to stay warm and those that are shaded through the winter months.

Plants typically survive cold better than frost. Should frost damage occur, consider a “wait and see” approach and avoid pruning the plant until it has a chance to offer new growth. In many cases, watering a stunned plant can help it recover quicker.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
