Seasonal Lawn Care:
Plan to Stay Green
When you have a lush, green lawn that you want to maintain all year long, it’s important to realize that each of those seasonal changes will likely require some tweaks to your turf tactics; and having a seasonal lawn care plan on hand as the calendar advances is one of the wisest things you can do as a proud property owner.
Depending on the area you live, you could be facing any number of climate changes that can threaten to destroy all the hard work you’ve done and the money you’ve invested to create a landscape you love. Winter weather is harsh and cold, with freezing temps that can endanger the roots of your lawn by cutting off their access to water. Consequently, grass tends to go into hibernation mode, storing up all the nutrients it can so that when those cruel conditions come, that conserved fuel can keep it alive. Still, even that natural ability to adapt needs assistance, and you’ll need to know just what that requires.
Winter isn’t the only season that necessitates some negotiations. Summer heat can be brutal, robbing the ground of enough hydration to reach the root system of your grass and choking it to death, relentlessly stealing everything that nourishes it from root to tip.
Fortunately, spring and autumn are more mild, providing transitionary periods between the intensities of summer and winter and easing things along so that, when the thermometer seems like the dial of doom, your lawn can survive to see another season.
There are, of course, many factors to consider when it comes to formulating a seasonal plan, so doing research relevant to your region is extremely important. Some of the tasks may be simple and can be handled by any enthusiastic—or even not so enthusiastic—DIY’er, while others may be better addressed by a professional landscaping maintenance company. Whether you’re using a pro or doing it yourself, however, getting some sound advice will help you now and in the future, so that you’re well-prepared for whatever nature throws at you—whether it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter.
Prudent property owners know not to turn a blind eye as the climate changes; make your own readiness plan so that you have the tools at hand to keep your lawn looking its best, whether it’s time for winter white or warm enough to go barefoot. Your grass will be green with gratitude, and brown will be out of season for good.
