During the summer months, lawn owners work hard to keep their grass lush, green, and perfectly pruned. In the months to come, the foliage is sure to take a beating as colder weather brings fallen leaves, high winds, ice, and snow.
Lawn owners might think that once the leaves are cleared from their lawn that their job is over until next spring. However, the work will not end until their lawn is properly winterized.
Winterizing your lawn just gives it that final clean up that it needs to prepare for a few months of hibernation. When you’ve taken the steps to have your lawn properly winterized, you can rest assured that your lawn will be in tip-top shape once the ground thaws and the weather warms up.
Here are 4 ways that Four Seasons Landscaping can help you get your lawn ready for winter:
Remove the right leaves
It may come as a surprise, but not all of the leaves that fall in autumn should be removed from your lawn for the winter. For winterizing your lawn, we will remove leaves from the areas where they have fallen heavily and mulch the rest so that your lawn can have nutrient-dense fertilizer.
Utilize liquid aeration
Due to gravity and weight simply being applied to your lawn, the soil becomes impacted over time which can lead to foliage growth issues. Four Seasons Lawn Care can help by utilizing a liquid aeration system – a process that creates tiny holes deep into your soil for maximum aeration.
After your lawn has been adequately aerated by our team, we will implement over-seeding to prepare your lawn for another lush year come springtime. Over-seeding is a process in which we reseed your lawn without removing any of the existing grass.
Because aeration creates more space in your soil below the surface, there are more room for seeds to be planted and become fertilized. Once the ground thaws in the spring, your lawn will be prepared for another beautifully green year. This is an essential step for winterizing your lawn.
We will help your perennials, shrubs, and small trees get ready for the frost by trimming them down and cleaning out your mulch beds. We will also edge your mulch beds and install fresh mulch to keep your lawn looking attractive even as the snow begins to fall!
