Many homeowners overlook important winter lawn maintenance that can set the stage for a healthier, more attractive lawn in the spring and summer. If you want your turfgrass to emerge from winter dormancy in the best health, be sure to consider these important maintenance tasks.
- Aerate. Let moisture and nutrients reach the roots of your turfgrass
- Fertilize.Do this before dormancy, carefully following all product instructions
- Clean up leaves and debris. Remove those leftover fall leaves to reduce the risk of mold or injury
- Insect/Weed Control. Late fall is a great time to prevent pest/weed problems next spring. Always follow manufacturer’s instructions for herbicides and insecticides.
