Winter Lawn Preps

Winter Lawn Preps

As you gear up your snow blower and dust off your snow shovel, don’t forget to address the needs of your lawn before the snow piles up.  If your lawn is under any kind of stress going into the cold months, it is less likely to get through winter without any additional damage.   The healthier your lawn is prior to winter, the healthier it will be come spring!

An easy, proactive measure will be to completely clear your lawn of any debris such as leaves, grass clippings, etc.  Removing the debris will help prevent snow mold and matting issues next spring. Even though the temperatures may be falling, don’t put away the mower just yet. It is best to gradually cut the grass shorter, reducing the length to 2.5 inches before winter. This will also help with matting issues.

A winter fertilizer application will also be beneficial for your lawn. The application feeds the root system, keeping it healthy during the winter months. Come spring, you'll see the lawn turning green even earlier.
