So how many of you cut the day of a hard freeze warning. This extends all the way down to Sarasota. Even the northern subs of Miami will see digits into the 20's.
I never cut the day of a freeze. BUt I know I will go out today and see the uniformed not know what they are doing lawn care guys mowing today.

no cutting for us today..we dont cut the night before a freeze either...causes too much damage to everything...
I'm not in florida, but close enough. No cutting here today, not after a freeze. Out running errands making sure everything is ordered etc. For the landscape install we are starting thurs. I have seen a few guys out cutting ths morning already.

No cutting today. Wrapping a bunch of stuff. Now the battle to keep people from being too eager to cut back freeze damage begins.

BED HEATING....we have a fair amount of higher end landscape accts. that pay us to cover plants in the event of a freeze or frost each year..problem is its not that profitable..lol....and its always a last minute rush to get it done...we have searched for ways to heat ornamentals but havent found much...was thinking of a way to circulate hot water through hoses just under mulch around plants kind of like the floor heating in some homes....any thoughts ??

Try compost or manure & cover.
