Winter guide: Maintaining your lawn

Winter has finally arrived! The cold, damp days are ahead of us along with our garden and plants preparing for hibernation. Despite the chilly conditions, caring for the garden lawn doesn’t end there! 

So how do you maintain the lawn during the cool season? How do you keep it from withering?
Those are the worries you might encounter but fear not! Have a few reads on our basic lawn maintenance guide.

1. Replenish those nutrients!

Fertilizer is the key to nourishing your lawn and giving it a chance to grow throughout the freezing winter. Nutrients resources are sacred and limited, therefore having a pack of fertilizer as backup is handy! Distribute the fertilizer evenly on the ground and remember not to over-apply it! This may cause burn damage to your grass.

2. Water, water, and water!

Winter can be deceiving for its cold and wet weather, but don’t it fool you that your lawn still needs watering! During a frosty day, watering your lawn helps to increase the moisture evaporation on the grass, reducing the chances of frosting. Sprinklers usually do the job of delivering small amounts of water to your lawn!

3. Tidy up the lawn! (Winter cleaning) 

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t give you an excuse to skip cleaning! It is extremely important to clean up any debris, leaves, and rubbish lying near the lawn. It stops pests and vermin from manifesting and damaging the lawn.

4. Weather forecast is important as you think

It is better to be safe than sorry; Your lawn may be tough and endurable towards extreme weather in different seasons but it is not guaranteed for long-term exposure. So be kind to your lawn, be prepared especially when it’s below freezing.
