The winter months are a great time for your lawn. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean your lawn can’t look beautiful. With just a few simple steps, you can have an attractive lawn even when the temperatures drop.
Manage Your Lawn this Winter
Here are a few tips on how to take care of your lawn during these colder months:
- Check tress for any weak or loose limbs that may fall on your property and cause damage. Large branches sitting in your yard can kill the grass underneath. If they’re too heavy to remove yourself, call a professional tree service to remove them for you. This is important for the winter months when there is a higher chance of ice and snow accumulating on branches, making them more likely to break and fall.
- Clear leaves from your lawn with a rake or leaf blower if they pile too high. This will help your lawn stay healthy, allowing oxygen and the sun to reach the grass blades. Similar to if a large tree limb falls in your yard, too many leaves can suffocate and destroy the grass.
- When the mowing season is at an end, some people like to cut their grass one last time as close to the ground as possible. Rather than cutting your grass short, keep it to a medium length, particularly if you’re not sure what type of grass it is. A professional landscaper should be able to help you identify the grass species and recommend the best care for your specific lawn to keep it looking its best year-round.
