Winter can be a trying time for your garden, as well as your lawn. If you do not take the necessary precautions, many plants might not survive the season. The same goes for your lawn. If you want it to look just as good in the spring as it did the year before, you would do well to follow these tips.
1. Provide adequate light
During winter, light will be available more sparingly because it gets darker sooner. At the same time, the leaves that might have prevented light from coming in would no longer be there, but they might fall and cover the lawn, making sure that it receives even less light. The solution for this is remove shade wherever possible by pruning and thinning the trees and to collect all of the fallen leaves off the lawn.
2. Treat weeds
The winter conditions are ideal for many weeds, lichens and moss to thrive which is not ideal for your lawn as they will begin to destroy your grass. In order to avoid this, you must treat the weeds during autumn to ensure that they do not grow. At the same time, you can prevent ideal conditions for weeds to grow – low light, poor drainage and low nutrients.
3. Maintain fertility
The fertility of the lawn is important during the growing seasons if you want it to look beautiful, but it is just as important during winter. Even though the grass is not growing, it still needs to be kept alive so you need to use organic fertilizer in order to provide it with the necessary nutrients.
