Get your pool cover in place for winter. If you have a simple plastic cover, make sure there aren’t any rips or tears. Repair small tears by duct taping on both sides. For a safety cover, follow the manual instructions for installation. Use water tubes to keep the cover in place. They won’t harm the pool liner if they happen to tumble into the pool.
Always read pot tags and consider looking plants up online to confirm just how tall and wide they’ll grow in your region. With living groundcovers like this perennial alpine strawberry, it’s also important to consider how far plants can spread. Groundcovers used as bed edging may need constant attention to keep them in bounds. Read plant reviews online and ask local garden centers to discover how aggressively a particular plant grows in your region. A docile beauty in a northern zone with hard winters can often be a garden thug in regions with mild winters.
