4 FAQ About Winter Landscaping Measures

When Should I Fertilize My Lawn?

In general, it’s best to fertilize your lawn later in the fall or even during the early winter months. No matter what, fertilization should occur before the first freeze of the winter; that way, you can ensure your lawn has all the vital nutrients that were depleted during summer.

What Length Should the Grass Be?

landscapingShorter grass is preferred during winter. Tall grass is an ideal habitat for mice and other rodents, who will likely build nests in your lawn for shelter from the cold air. Unfortunately, this will result in a significant headache once warmer weather arrives. Cut your grass steadily shorter during the last hot months of summer so it’s the proper length when cold weather strikes.

Will Foot Traffic Hurt My Lawn?

Foot traffic will always hurt your lawn, no matter the time of the year. With this in mind, urge guests and residents to keep off the grass, no matter its current state. Doing so will prevent unsightly brown spots from forming.

How Important Is Cleaning My Lawn?

Items left on a lawn can damage even the healthiest grass. To prevent this, spot check your lawn for any debris and remove it as soon as possible. Dead spots can form under objects, which will leave brown patches in the spring.
