Will winterkill be a problem?

Though most cool season grass can survive the cold, ice, and snow of a winter season, this page demonstrates a lawn can still suffer when the weather turns bad. Unfortunately, there’s little homeowners can do to prevent these conditions, but they’re still good to be aware of.

  • Ice that persists on a lawn for longer than 30 days can harm the grass beneath. This ice can be the result of snow thawing then refreezing.
  • Snow may be cold, but it can also provide effective insulation to grass beneath it. This can lead to gray or pink snow mold growing on the grass.
  • Wind and cold can kill off bare, dormant grass. Walking on this grass can exacerbate the situation.

As the article points out, the best option to prevent these conditions is to remove snow and ice from a lawn, but this is very impractical. The second-best option is probably keeping your lawn healthy during the rest of the year. Also, avoiding walking on the lawn can also be beneficial. For more lawn care help, contact us.
