We often experience mild temperatures in Maryland compared to other parts of the country. That is why it is vital to conduct lawn maintenance throughout the winter. Although you don’t have to mow or water your lawn, there are still steps you can take to make sure that it receives the necessary treatment it rightfully deserves. Listed below are some helpful tips to preserve your yard this winter.
Clean Up Your Lawn
You should remove piles of leaves accumulated in your yard throughout the fall season. You should remove them not only to keep your lawn intact but also to prevent lawn disease. Wet leaves are a factor in lawn disease, so you should always be proactive in removing them. Once your yard becomes infected, diseases attract pests to your home. Limiting foot traffic is another underrated factor in keeping your grass clear, as you can prevent your lawn from incurring further damage.
Take The Opportunity To Aerate Your Landscape
It would be helpful to aerate your lawn before the middle of the winter season hits. By doing so, the roots will receive vital essential nutrients and oxygen before winter, which is beneficial for a healthy landscape. After the aeration process, you can also use a winter fertilizer for additional support to combat disease. Elements like snow can also be harmful to your grass. Snow mold could endanger your yard when winter ends and as the snow melts. Keep in mind that this fungus grows in constant cold, rainy temperatures.
