3 Easy Tips to Get Your Lawn Ready for Winter

Courtesy of Fresh Home Design & Architecture

1. Grass should be mowed until it slows in growing: The length of your grass is vital in keeping it healthy during its dormant stage. If the grass is too short the cold wind can reach the roots and cause dead sections later in the season. If the grass is too long, the blades can get mold or disease. Stop cutting grass after you notice it stop growing and leave it for a few weeks. This should ensure a good length.

2. Rake leaves and debris regularly: Grass still needs access to sunlight during the winter months. Rake up leaves and debris throughout the season to ensure grass receives ample light and air. Mold, and disease, is common in winter months when leaves and debris are left over grass. Do not leave trash bags, trash cans or other heavy items on grass for long periods of time as well.

3. Aerate and de-weed your lawn: Placing holes in your yard and pulling out soil is called aeration. This helps fertilizer; water and air get deep into the grass. Consider aerating your lawn before the winter season sets in. Consider removing weeds and foreign plants before the winter sets in. Spray weed killer before the winter sets in. This will ensure when spring comes weeds from the fall will not affect your new lawn.
