Lawn Care in Winter

In most parts of the country, lawn grass goes dormant in the winter.

In the Midwest, it's too cold for any grass to grow, so we wait patiently for spring, sometimes under snow cover, sometimes not. However, lawn care doesn't quite end in the winter. Try these tricks to keep your yard healthy:

  1. Fertilize – In the fall, have your lawn aerated. Aerating your lawn will give it a chance to breathe before the grass goes dormant. After you’ve aerated, fertilize to give your lawn the nutrients it needs to prepare for winter.
  2. Keep the lawn clean – If leaves have piled up during fall, there’s a chance your lawn could suffocate before winter. Leaves that are left behind could also invite disease if they’re too wet.
  3. Avoid a lot of lawn traffic – When the lawn is frosted or dormant, try not to walk on it too much.
  4. Be careful when treating ice! – Avoid damaging your lawn and landscaping during the winter by using Ice Melt instead of rock salt. Ice Melt covers 2 times more than rock salt.
