Winter Meltdown

In most parts of the country, there are brief periods when the snow melts and you think, “Ah, Spring is here!”. Rationally, and by looking at the calendar you know it’s not, but it’s still nice to daydream. However, there are some things you can do to prepare your lawn for warmer weather ahead.

1) Buy your fertilizer now. Why wait ’til the crowds mob the garden supply stores?

2) If you have certain areas of your lawn that are covered in more snow than others, do something about it! Move the snow so there is even coverage. Even coverage means even melting and fewer bare spots.

3) Be prepared for bare spots – they are inevitable. Our Velocity Lawn Patch Plus gets rids of unsightly lawn spots without harsh chemicals. Plus, you don’t have to mix or measure anything. Just shake and pour.

4) If there is a meltdown, get out there and clean up any debris or leaves you did not get to in the fall.

I’ll leave you with this small list to get started. If you have any winter lawn care tips, please comment. I am always open to suggestions.

Until next time… Ann šŸ™‚

You really hit the nail on the head here Ann. It is so important to ready your soil for the spring whenever you can. There is plenty to do now, but the real growing season, for most of the U.S. is from March to October. I’m starting now too.
