There’s been a lot of snow, ice, and general winter weather lately and it’s only going to get worse as February rolls around. It’s usually the snowiest month in Maryland. Taking care of your lawn in the winter months can be a challenge, but you need to make sure that you’re giving it attention all year round. You won’t have to spend a lot of time keeping your lawn healthy in the winter, but it does help to dedicate a few hours here and there. The following tips will help you maintain a healthy lawn through the whole Maryland winter.
Tips for Keeping Your Lawn Healthy in Winter
- Keep your lawn clear of debris – If you leave heavy debris on your lawn during the winter, you are likely to find dead spots in the spring. Keeping your grasses low and debris off will help keep the grass healthy. Try to do a sweep of your lawn at least once per week –more if you know it’s going to snow — throughout the winter months.
- Avoid walking on it – Doing your best to stay off the grass will help keep it greener in the summer months. The best way to discourage people from walking on your grass in the winter is to keep your sidewalks clear of snow and ice. A professional service can help you to keep your walkways safe during the cold months to keep people off of your lawn.
- Check for pests – Carpenter ants and more can infest your lawn during the winter months. Keep your eyes open and employ strategies to keep pests off your lawn from November through March. The best thing to do if you notice an infestation of bugs in your lawn is to call your landscaping company. They’ll be able to recommend the best way to rid yourself of the pests.
