Just because it’s wintertime doesn’t mean that you can forget about lawn care. In fact, did you know there are things you can do now that will help your lawn look its best come springtime? Follow these 3 tips to keep your lawn healthy this winter season:
- Clean up debris and leaves
For optimum lawn health, your lawn should be free of debris and leaves, which can create dead spots in the grass due to their weight or if the leaves remain wet and start molding.
- Avoid salting your lawn
When the salt dispenser comes out to salt the sidewalks, driveways, and other paths next to your house, be careful not to get any salt on your lawn, because the chemicals can have a harmful effect on the grass, even if they are marketed as “lawn-safe”.
- Cut, fertilize, and aerate your lawn
Before the first freeze of the season, cut the grass extra short, spread some fertilizer (preferably one that’s high in phosphorus), and aerate your lawn to promote the health of your grass while it’s covered by snow.
