Tip: Removing snow from shrubbery

If snow covers your shrubbery use a broom to very gently brush it off in an upward motion. This will loosen and dislodge the snow so it falls to the ground. Don't be tempted to sweep it off sideways or downward because that will disturb the plant and can cause branches to bend and break.
