Winterizing your lawn is one of the best things you can do for spring. As the weather starts to turn colder you are getting to the end of your lawn maintenance regiment. One final step to put your lawn to bed is approaching.
What Is Winterizer And Why Your Lawn Needs It
Here are some tips to help you make the process quick and easy.
Once the final leaves have fallen and are cleaned up or mulched into your lawn the winterizing can begin.
Rake up any dead thatch from the lawn. This can be done by hand with a rake, or you can rent a motorized lawn rake for larger lawns.
Once that thatch is loosed up you can either compost it or bag it to be picked up.
Apply a winterizing fertilizer per the makers instructions on the bag. Both Scott’s and the Ace branded fertilizers do a terrific job at promoting a time release feeding and deeper root growth.
Once applied you just need to water it once for about ½ an hour to help the granules settle in.
These easy steps will help limit the chances of a winter mold forming if you get a lot of snow and help to start the lawn quicker when spring rolls around next year.
