10. Keep walkways clear of snow and ice. As we get further along in December, many folks living in cold climates will get their first snow. Be prepared by stocking up on snow shovels and ice melt, and store your tools where you can easily get to them during a storm. Just be aware that certain ice melting products can be harmful to pets and plants — read the labels carefully before buying, and try to keep products off of your lawn and garden beds.11. Check your roof for ice dams. Ice dams are areas of built-up ice that can accumulate on your roof, potentially causing leaks when they melt. If you can safely reach them, break them up now to prevent future damage.12. Knock snow from tree branches. Large amounts of snow can cause trees to lose branches, which can be especially dangerous if a large limb is positioned near your home. Use a long-handled broom or other tool to gently knock snow from branches.

4. Winter gardens are sensuous echoes. I think the absence of a thing is a more profound reality of that thing. I know, that’s deep. But how does that song go — you don’t know what you’ve lost until it’s gone? The “loss” of flowers and green in the garden is actually a gaining of the true essence of those flowers and the green. I can see the garden so clearly, an X-ray-vision thing. It’s like I’ve slept really well and woken up energized, and the light of heaven shows me what’s working and what isn’t in the garden. I can see what plants are just not pulling their weight, where I need vertical accents, where I need some grasses, what’s empty and what’s died out. Designing a winter garden is way more exciting than designing in the cacophony of summer — but maybe I just like pushing the limits within a limiting palette.
