Winter Lawn Protection Tips
Perform One Final Yard Maintenance Routine
This includes raking, mowing, aerating, and fertilizing. You don’t want to leave behind a heavy blanket of leaves going into winter, as they can damage grass during its dormant months. Rake up and remove heavier vegetation, or mow and mulch your lawn. An aeration treatment helps loosen compacted soil and brings much-needed sunlight, oxygen, and water down to tender grassroots.
Take Care of Perennial Weeds
No matter how much you fight them, you never truly win the war on weeds. Just like your grass, weeds are trying to build up energy reserves this time of year to help sustain them through winter. Using a topical herbicide is an easy way to get rid of pest plants above the surface of the soil, as well as their stubborn roots beneath the ground. So, take one final walk around your lawn and garden and contact your best Regina Landscapers to treat any remaining evidence of weeds.
Tackle Any Problematic Trees
Be sure to fully inspect all trees on your property. Look for signs of disease and/or damage. Trim back limbs and branches that may pose a hazard to roofs and gutters, power lines, and parked cars, should they get weighed down by snow or ice and snap off. Lastly, fertilize your trees and shrubs to ensure they have the necessary nutrients to stay strong throughout the winter.
Properly Store Your Lawn Equipment
Don’t forget about the tools you rely on to care for your lawn! For power equipment including mowers, string trimmers, and edgers, be sure to drain and properly dispose of fuel and oil. Disconnect spark plugs or batteries, if your tools are rechargeable. Scrape off any caked-on grass, mud, and other debris and give everything a good cleaning. Change air filters, spark plugs and other replaceable components as necessary.
Whatever you do, make sure your lawn is ready to head into winter now, so it looks its best and leaves you with much less to do once spring 2020 arrives in Regina, Saskatchewan.
