You miss us. We miss you. But until we meet again in 2019, there’s plenty you can do to keep your lawn healthy and happy through the long, cold winter. Because, baby, it’s cold outside. Remember all the good times you had together this past year? You don’t want to ignore your outdoor environment while you’re sipping eggnog and waiting for that certain someone to step under the mistletoe.
Until we meet again, my friends.
Open up and say ‘aaah’
Before frost becomes a daily deal, get out there an aerate your lawn. Opening up the ground allows your green carpet to breath a little easier, before the winter season compacts the turf too much.
Once you’ve aerated, it’s a great time to fertilize with essential nutrients before your lawn braces for the cold months ahead. The roots will store the fertilizer until spring, when it will bound back to life, green and healthy. Fertilizing will also protect against weeds and pests when the weather begins to warm.
Less is more
If you haven’t scheduled a fall cleanup yet, those piles of leaves could be suffocating your lawn in plain sight. Get your rakes ready or call Wild Goose Landscaping, because those fallen tree soldiers block the sunlight and invite diseases that could plague your lawn throughout the spring. You may also want to store the lawn furniture, relocate the plaster gnome and move those logs scattered around the outside fire pit. Clear your lawn and let it breathe.
Watch your step
Even the sturdiest of grass blades weaken when they’re walked on over and over. If you’re wearing a path across your lawn during the wintertime, when frost is recurring, it will take a toll. Try to stagger your steps and take the long, scenic route around your property. Your lawn will thank you for it.
Make a plan, man
Spring is just around the frozen corner. It’s never too early to plan for the new year and the memories you’ll be making come springtime. Make a resolution to have the best lawn on the block! Call Wild Goose today and book your lawn treatment for 2019.
Joy and peace of mind this season … imagine that! Your lawn will feel special after all!
