After the snow comes and the cold sets in, it’s easy to forget about the lawn in the winter. Especially for those of us in the South, the last thing we want is to spend hours outside in the cold when there’s football on inside. But we do need to put a few hours here and there over the next few months to help promote new growth. Here’s a couple thoughts to be mindful of from your friends at ALF as we make the slow winter’s crawl to spring 2018.
1. Do a quick sweep of your lawn every couple weeks. Any objects that are left on the ground, even leaves, will leave impressions that could lead to dead spots in the lawn when it’s time for new growth. It will likely leave those areas stunted and thinner most of the year.
2. In periods of winter weather, you need to keep your driveways and walkways clear of snow and ice. Guests won’t be tempted to cut through the yard. And they won’t mistake your yard as part of the driveway. Even the smallest of cars or excess foot traffic can stunt or kill the grass as well as promote weeds when the temperature is just right.
