Before the snow falls and temperatures drop below freezing, there are some things you can do to help your lawn stay healthy throughout its dormant winter months:
1. Keep your grass approx. 2 inches tall. Any longer might make your grass susceptible to diseases. Any shorter and it might not be able to store the nutrients that it needs to survive its dormant months.
2. Make sure to water your lawn until the ground freezes and fertilize one last time before the first freeze.
3. Try to keep belongings off the lawn or you may see large dead spots in the spring.
4. Rake your leaves before the snow falls. This will help grass green up in the spring.
5. Make sure to winterize your irrigation systems! Call Mr. Sprinkler @ 612-221-1833 to get your
system winterized/blown out.
