Winter Lawn Care Tips

Don’t ignore the lawn just because it’s winter

In most parts of the country, lawn grass goes dormant in the winter. In the south, cool season ryegrass is often overseeded into the turf to maintain a green lawn. In the north, it’s too cold for any grass to grow so we wait patiently for spring – sometimes under snow cover, sometimes not. Lawn care doesn’t quite end in the winter though.

Seasonal Lawn Care Tips for Summer, Spring Winter & Fall

Here are some tips for your lawn in December:

  • In some areas, the leaves will start falling. Be sure to remove them from the lawn as they will block sunlight from reaching the grass blades.
  • It is recommended that centipedegrass lawns are mowed at 2″ prior to the first frost.
  • If your lawn is still actively growing, be sure and keep up with mowings and don’t allow it to grow too high.

Lawns respond best to feedings in the fall. If you only feed your lawn once a year, do it in the fall.
