Winter lawn care may seem like an oxymoron. After all, the grass isn’t growing during this season, right? But giving your lawn a little TLC even while it’s dormant can help it come back better than ever in the spring. Here are a few basic steps that won’t take long but can keep your grass in good health.
Do A General Lawn Clean-Up
Begin by clearing leaves and branches, as they can suffocate the grass and create a breeding ground for diseases that can threaten the health of your lawn. Trim your grass slightly shorter than usual in late fall to prevent it from getting matted by heavy rains or snowfall. Trapped moisture can lead to mold and disease.
Winterize With the Right Fertilizer
Aerate the lawn and apply a winter fertilizer with a higher ratio of potassium. It helps strengthen the grass and promotes root development. The grass will be more resilient to winter stress and better primed for spring growth.
Keep Your Lawn In Mind When Choosing Ice Melt Products
Consider using ice melt sparingly and choose a product that is pet-friendly and won’t harm your lawn. You’ll have less lawn damage to repair in the spring so your lawn can bounce back from winter dormancy faster.
