Winter Lawn Maintenance can be an important part of keeping you homes’ curb appeal up. Keeping your gutters clean is a part of lawn maintenance. Taking care of your lawn and landscape can help you keep you gutters clean because there is less debris to fall into your gutters.
During the winter, take warmer days to do some lawn work, such as:
This is a job you can work on after all the bigger snows for the season are over. Weed out all the flowerbeds to prepare for spring growth and gardening.
Fertilize Shrubs & Flowerbeds
Fertilize around your shrubs and flowerbeds in late fall/early winter to get them in prime condition for spring planting. This will replace all the nutrients that can be lost from the soil during the hot summer months. Once the weather turns cold, the fertilizer will stay in the soil and feed your lawn’s roots all winter long.
Remove Dead Flowers
Remove dead flowers from flower beds and pots. It might be a good idea to store your pots and other small plant holders that could potentially break from the extreme cold weather or might get broken if the wind knocks them down.
Avoid excess lawn traffic
If an object is left on your lawn over the winter, this creates a dead spot on your lawn. Also make sure to use your sidewalk and walkway. Clear your walkways to prevent visitors and family members from using your lawn as a cut-through. If you have a lot of traffic through your lawn during the winter, this is create dead spots on your lawn. Don’t park any vehicles on your lawn either. It’s a big lawn killer. You can start seeding your lawn once it gets closer to spring around the beginning of March.
