Are you looking for ways to care for your lawn in the winter? Well, you’re you came to the right place! You see, in some parts of the country, typically, grass tends to go dormant during the winter season. Usually, in the south, cool-season ryegrass is overseeded into the turf to keep a lawn looking healthy and green. However, in the north, it can be too cold for any grass to grow. This can lead you to have to patiently for spring to see what your lawn looks like entirely. So we’ve put together excellent ways you can take care of your lawn this winter. Continue reading!
Make Sure You Continue Fertilizing
First and foremost, you want to apply fertilizer with a spreader. While you’re moving the machine back and forth above the grass, then grip the handle like a trigger, and you’ll find that it releases pellets as you “shoot.” It may help to follow the instructions from the fertilizer package and only apply the suggested amount. Ensure that you don’t add too much fertilizer because it can lead to burning your grass.
Aerate Your Lawn
You’ll want to provide extra air for your grassroots from aerating your lawn. Then use a spade to remove the spikes of soil across your grass to make holes for planting seeds. If you have a large lawn, you’ll benefit from renting a motorized aerator or even a manual one.
Buy Cool-Weather Grass Seed
Ensure that you’re buying grass seed that says “cold weather” or “cool season” on the package, like most fescues. Then you can add a dash of the seed over the lawn with the same spreader you used for fertilizer. Additionally, you want to try to layout the seed evenly so you won’t have chunks of grass later on.
Water & Rake Your Lawn
Nevertheless, drag your rake over the lawn to break up the soil clumps and ensure to cover the seeds a bit. Then you can water the lawn with your garden hose spray. Afterward, it’s essential to keep the soil moist and d to let it dry out.
Keep It Clean
It’s incredibly critical that you don’t leave leaves, debris, toys, etc., laying out on the lawn. Doing so can suffocate the grass, invite insects, unwanted pests, and create disease conditions.
