4 Tips for Winter Lawn Care

It's winter and you probably aren't thinking about your lawn. Who could blame you? It's cold outside and you most likely want to stick to being cozy inside as much as possible. We get it, but did you know there are actually a few things you could have done to your lawn in the winter to make for an even healthier lawn in the spring? The best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few winter lawn care tips.

4 Winter Lawn Care Tips

Tip # 1
Limit walking or driving over your lawn.
Walking or driving over frozen grass several times can cause the grass to become weak. A heavily worn path of grass can have a harder time growing in the spring.

Tip # 2
Have your lawn fertilized.
Choosing to have your lawn fertilized by professionals is a wise choice because they can:

A. Pick the right fertilizer for your lawn
B. Know how much fertilizer your lawn needs

Using too much fertilizer in certain places of your lawn can cause it to grow in clumps and make it look less pleasing in the spring. Avoid that by having a landscape company come out and do this for you.

Tip # 3
Keep your lawn clean.
It can be very easy to let leaves pile up on your lawn or to leave sticks or fallen branches, but try not to do that. Leaving debris on your lawn can cause the grass underneath to not grow as well. Debris on your lawn can also invite pests, such as insects or mice to come to your lawn and damage it.

Tip # 4
Be careful about how you treat your ice.
Using too much rock salt can damage your lawn, so be sure to read the packaging carefully and apply as directed.
