Lawn Care - Winterizing Your Lawn

So, it's been a great summer and fall. But, now it's time to tuck your lawn away for the winter. There are a few things you should do in the late fall to get your lawn ready for a long winter's nap. The extra effort now, will allow your lawn to wake up next spring in great shape, and save you time in the spring.


We recommend four basic steps:

As fall arrives, reseed areas as needed. Fall is a great time for new grass seed to take root. It also eliminates areas for weeds to grow in the spring.

Fertilize one more time with a high nitrogen fertilizer to encourage root growth. Lawn and garden stores have an ample supply of Winterizer fertilizer.

Rake leaves and debris off your lawn in the fall. Be aggressive ,and rake out any areas where heavy thatch has built up.

After the lawn has stopped growing, and before the snow flies, give your lawn one more cutting. Lower the mower deck to cut your lawn to about one inch. We like to do the final mowing with a bagger to pick up cut grass, stray leaves, and other debris. We do this to leave less places for Snowmold to develop.


A word about Snowmold

Snowmold is common in areas where snow cover lasts for several weeks, or more. It harbors in your lawn under the snow. Organic debris left on your lawn offers a home for Snowmold to grow and to thrive. More on Snowmold.
