That’s a lot of rain we received during the past couple weeks, and we hope it’s restored your lawn to a full, healthy green. But as you’re getting ready to put away your lawn mower, there are still several things you should do to help your grass make it through the winter and emerge healthy next spring. This article reviews what some of these things are.
- If you haven’t done a soil pH test, buy a test kit at your local garden center and use it. The results will guide the rest of your lawn care steps.
- Aerate your lawn to counteract soil compaction
- Apply new seed that will replace dying grass.
- Fertilize your lawn. Use your pH test results and the recommendations for your grass variety to determine what type of fertilizer to use.
Because of our focus on making your lawn look great through sprinkler/irrigation systems and outdoor lighting, we also offer this lawn care advice, as it’s another essential component for attractive lawns. For more advice on improving the look of your lawn, contact us.
