I have 8 newly planted arborvitae arranged in an "L" configuration. They are planted in an area between two houses and the houses act as some sort of wind tunnel.
The winter wind really blows through there amazingly hard.
I am worried that the wind will damage / wind burn my
new arborvitaes. I am thinking about wrapping them with burlap.
How do I go about that? Do I wrap each individual plant tightly with the burlap or do I kind of make a barrier with the burlap by putting in stakes in front of the plants and use the burlap to block the wind? What do you use to hold the burlap together, twine, rope, zip strips, etc?
When is the best time to cover them?
