Winter lawn care

Winter lawn care

It's easy to forget about your lawn over the Winter as it requires a lot less work than the rest of the year but it will still benefit from a little bit of maintenance occasionally.

A Late Feed

If you didn't do so in Autumn then feed the lawn with a specialised Autumn lawn feed before the Winter season starts to really set in

Stop Mowing

The grass will not grow over the winter so there's no need to mow it

"Keep Off The Grass"

Avoid walking on the lawn, particularly during frosts or after wet weather as this can cause localised puddles, compaction and bruising to the blades of grass which allows frost in

Remove Debris

Remove fallen leaves and other debris from the lawn every now and then so it doesn't build up

Plan Ahead

Keep an eye out for where puddles form after heavy rain as these areas will need attention in the spring to improve the drainage
