7 tips for looking after your lawn in winter.
Feed your lawn
The best solution is to apply some iron and seaweed (in liquid form) to your lawn. This tonic for turf helps to reduce plant stress, and hardens grass to protect it throughout the colder months.
Keep of the lawn
Try to rest the lawn as much as possible during winter by keeping of the grass. If practical don’t go on it when wet or frosty. As grass is not actively growing during this time, it will not repair itself if damaged until the spring.
Don’t mow the lawn
During the winter your lawn should stop growing and therefore will not require mowing. Only mow the lawn if it’s absolutely necessary. Set your mower 25% higher. Don’t mow it at all if heavy frosts are expected or if the ground is very wet.
Keep your lawn clean
Make sure that you clear the lawn of all objects after you mow it for the last time of the year. If an object is left on the grass during cold weather and snowfall it can create large dead spots because of the weight of the object. In the spring the grass in that area will be stunted and thinner than the rest of the yard.
Clear up the leaves
Periodically sweep up fallen leaves and any debris from your lawn, but be careful to keep foot traffic to a minimum as this could damage the grass.
Aerate your lawn
You can help your lawn to be healthier by aerating it with a fork or with a spiking machine. This will relieve compaction, improve drainage and allow more air into the root system leading to healthier grass.
Service your mower
Use this time as an opportunity to service or replace your mower ready for spring. Make sure the blades are in good condition and stay sharp.
