Preventative care for your lawn is a great way to prepare for Spring. While you might want to take a break from lawn care for a season, small investments like winterizing your lawn, can pay huge dividends later on. Plus, if you act quickly, you might still be able to beat the snow in your area of St. Louis, Missouri.
Although it is a natural process for your lawn to go into a state of dormancy during the winter, there are a few things that you can do to make Winter a little easier for your lawn. While you and your family might be prepared for winter, can you say the same for your lawn? Simple steps of preventative maintenance on your lawn can help your greenery weather the coming changes.
You can take it easy for the rest of the winter as long as you remain observant. Most of the work is behind you, but it is worth looking out for desiccation, otherwise known as winterkill. Without the thermal protection of a layer of snow, desiccation can occur when your turf is exposed to cold winds that are known to dry up significant amounts of moisture. You can combat this by continuing to water your lawn in the Fall and up until the point of freezing temperatures.
After Winter has passed, expect to do a few things before you get back to regular mowing.
