Cheap insurance...against winter kill. See, this area is under my porch roof, so snow really doesnt fall here at all (or rain, for that matter). My hostas need some help to survive here... how about some snow? Works as insulation against our super-cold temps, and as it melts this area will get moisture too.
Even this spot needs some help, since snow is blocked by the roof overhang....
...there! I was already shoveling the sidewalk here anyhow, so why not put the snow to work?
Continue around the entire house....

.....there! Now the foundation plantings can enjoy the same "warm" blanket of snow that the rest of the plants around the yard get. On to the driveway....not! Hey, that's what four wheel drive is for! ;-)
