If you have hanging baskets or large potted plants on exposed decks or patios, they should be moved indoors ahead of the storm.
Other loose items that can be hurled about, such as lawn furniture,
garden tools, toys and rubbish bins, should also be brought inside
before strong winds strike. These items may be damaged or destroyed or
possibly become lethal flying objects during a storm.

Plants, Tree's and storm damage prevention
One of the most important preventive measures is to periodically
inspect trees in the landscaped garden. Look for and correct obvious problems.
Dead trees and broken, dead or decaying limbs can threaten human life or
increase property damage during a storm.
Garden maintenance is the best thing, pruning to develop a sturdy tree, it is best to cut branches
before they become larger than one inch in diameter. In pruning to
develop a strong limb structure within a tree, it’s best to keep limbs
that form a 45- to 90-degree angle with the main trunk. Limbs with this
wider angle have a stronger attachment with the trunk and will support
more weight compared to limbs with a more narrow angle.
