Much like Game of Thrones, we keep talking about how winter is coming, but it hasn’t arrived yet. Here are important reminders about caring for your lawn during winter.
- Get rid of dead leaves
- Make sure fertilizer was added to your lawn before winter starts.
- Make sure your grass is properly mowed prior to winter starting.
- Prepare your compost pile.
- If it happens to snow, do not shovel your lawn!
- Install an effective system for irrigation.
- Beware of the Frost!
The winter weather can have a negative effect on your lawn, including leading to your grass actually dying. If your lawn has not been given the proper nutrients, it will become dormant and possibly die, setting your property up for a harsh spring. If you didn’t properly service your grass for the winter, your lawn can be susceptible to mold, which could lead to your lawn dying. You want to put in your best efforts to decrease the risk of disease in your lawn and possible damage to your overall property. Make sure you care for your lawn throughout the winter season and if you need help doing so, call professionals. You don’t want all the steps taken in the fall and beginning of the winter season to be for nothing.
A great service to have that can really help protect your landscape and keep it healthy during the cold months of winter, is mulching. This material can help protect your soil from harsh conditions. Mulching will also help the surrounding trees on your property remain in good condition throughout the different temperatures we have in the winter. When it comes to your trees and your lawn, having mulch helps your property stay healthy for the upcoming spring season. When mulching, just make sure you do not add or apply large quantities of mulch, as it can have the reverse effect. Applying large quantities of mulch can not only damage your lawn, but also destroy the trees and surrounding plants and foliage.
Side note: If you are using the trees on the property for any holiday décor, make sure they are trimmed and properly taken care of before decorating them or possibly even bringing them inside for your holiday tree.
The proper timing of your lawn maintenance can protect your lawn from seasonal frost and the rest of the conditions that the harsh winter may bring. SO MAKE SURE YOU ARE PREPARED!

In some cases, it can be fun putting up holiday lights during this season. Your kids offer to help, but end up just holding the lights and tying them in a big knot. Maybe you constantly have to keep your eye on the family dog or cat to make sure they don’t knock you off the ladder. Oh what fun.
We always look back this time of year and watch funny and heartwarming holiday movies. But they all have similarities when it comes to decorations, don’t they? The lights never work, the person putting up the decorations always falls off a roof or ladder, the neighbors start hating you for how many lights you put up and how long you keep them on, and maybe a holiday tree catches fire. All these things make for great cinematic adventures, however they are somewhat based on reality or personal experience. Trust us, it’s not as funny when it happens to you.
