I have some smaller sized evergreen shrubs by my house that get covered in snow during winter. These are on the north side of the house so the snow does not melt until april. Each winter the plants get crushed. I am looking for plans to build some kind of wooden protection to fit over the shrub. Any images or site destinations would be helpful.
