Skipping lawn maintenance during winter doesn’t help. It only increases your lawn care workload for spring. Moreover, it may even cost you more to restore your lawn to its glory days. Even though the grass on your lawn is under snow cover, you still need to take care of it. So, what can you do to keep it strong and healthy throughout winter? Follow these Winter lawn care tips.
Mow the Grass During Winter
If you want to keep your lawn safe, mow the grass during winter. Long grass attracts pests, mice, rodents, and other burrowing animals. These creatures are charming, but they wreak havoc on your grass.
Some of their destructive habits include digging holes all over your lawn. And while at it, they badly ruin your healthy grass. The result is undesirable patches of dead grass. Fortunately, burrowing animals do not like short grasses. Mowing your lawn during winter discourages them from inhabiting your lawn.
Fertilize & Aerate
A well-maintained, lush green lawn on your business premises creates a good impression. This is the image you want to sustain. One of the best ways to achieve this is through fertilizing and aerating the lawn right before the first snowfall.
The objective is to provide the much-needed oxygen and nutrients to keep your grass healthy. When you fertilize the yard, the grass collects and stores enough nutrients to last through winter.
Remove the Weeds
Several weed species thrive during winters, such as Broad-leafed and Bindi-Burr weeds. If you leave any gaps on your lawn, these weeds fill them. Invest in a good herbicide to control the situation. Its chemical composition should not be too strong for the grass.
