I participated in a campaign on behalf of Influence Central forTruGreen. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
We live in an area where we get lots of snow and a cold winter. So we are no strangers to the need of getting our lawn ready for winter. Here are some of my tips for making sure your lawn is prepared for winter.
- Make sure your lawn is mowed regularly so it isn’t long once it gets cold.
- Make sure you pick up all the leaves from fall. This may not be an easy task to do if you own a pretty huge lawn. There’s a number of leaf blowers available in the market but a quiet leaf blower is recommended if you don’t like to carry a piece of bulky equipment around when cleaning your lawn.
- Make sure you prep your lawn mower for winter. Since it won’t be in use for many months it is a good idea to drain the gas and oil and remove the spark plug. It might also be a good idea to get the blades sharpened now so it will be all ready in the spring.
- Be sure to bring all your lawn furniture inside to avoid rust (unless they are weather resistant). Also be sure to bring in all those fun toys the kiddies have been playing with so they won’t get worn from the winter weather.
- Make sure there is nothing on the lawn as they could case dead spots on the grass.
TruGreen has some great tips for preparing your lawn and plants for the winter. They have include them in this handy infographic. Take a look.
I found this infographic to be very helpful. I didn’t know about Snow Mold and I didn’t know about removing Thatch. I am glad to learn more about better lawn care prep.
