While you’re busy getting ready for the holiday season with gifts, foods, and decorations, don’t forget to get your yard ready as well! You might think that the snow means that you don’t have to take care of your yard anymore, but if you want to have grass by the end of winter, you’ll definitely want to consider taking care of your lawn in the pre-winter months!
Here are three easy tips to help you get your lawn ready for the cold season!
1. First, take care of the summer damage! Summer can do a lot of harm to your lawn. That heat and dryness (like most people experience in the desert states: Nevada, Arizona, and Utah) can burn the life out of your yard—making an autumn recovery season very important. According to this article by MSN, you can reseed with a perennial ryegrass which will germinate quickly before the winter season starts.
2. Keep your hose! Although some states get enough moisture to last through the winter months, most states do not! You need to keep your lawn moist, even when freezing temperatures make it appear moist already. Your grass still needs hydration even when it’s cold!
3. Take it easy on the mulch! Keeping your mulch piles smaller will help keep them free from winter critters. According to the MSN article, these mulch piles should look like donuts around the trees, not volcanoes.
