How do you keep your lawn green in the winter? 4 simple tips to follow.
We get it. You’re not thinking about your lawn in the winter — or at least, you’re not thinking about hanging out anywhere near it. You want to be bundled up on the couch, sipping hot cocoa, and watching the latest episode of your favorite TV show. But just because you don’t want to be rolling around on your lawn during the winter, doesn’t mean you should forget to take care of it. If you do, then it might not be “roll-around-able” during later seasons.
Because of this, you need to answer the question, “How do you keep your lawn green in the winter?” And this question can be answered with four simple winter lawn care tips. Let’s take a look at those tips now.
Step 1: Improve drainage with Ground Breaker.
Hard soil can make it difficult for grass (and other plants) to grow. This is because the roots will struggle to absorb nutrients. On top of this, compacted soil can lead to a muddy lawn — with the hard soil, there are fewer pores for water and air to seep through. Because the water can’t drain, it gets backed up on top (thereby, creating puddles). All of this will ultimately lead to a not-so-green lawn.
To fix this issue, use Ground Breaker. This innovative product is a soil penetrant that works up to 6ft deep to reduce compaction, increase drainage, and eliminate runoff. Ground Breaker is easy to apply (just spray on the top of the soil) and even works overnight.
Step 2: Fix problem spots with TurfMAX.
Even if you manage to keep most of your grass green during the winter, problem spots might still pop up from time to time. When this happens, the simplest thing to do is to apply TurfMAX.
TurfMAX is a soil treatment for lawns that leverages over 50 different ingredients to help your grass grow better. You can apply it right on top, and it will go to work fast — correcting pH imbalances and adding back any missing trace elements.
Step 3: Feed your lawn with Pro-Gro 365.
If your lawn doesn’t have the proper nutrients to begin with, then it doesn’t have a fighting chance to stay green during the winter — let alone any season. To make sure your lawn has the means to stay green, feed it Pro-Gro 365.
Pro-Gro 365 is a 12-month, slow-release fertilizer that feeds your lawn all year ‘round. It provides your lawn with the right amount of nutrients at the right time, so your lawn will never go hungry — even during the winter!
Step 4: Water carefully!
In the winter, lawns don’t need to be watered as often as they’re watered in the summer. So be careful! If you water your lawn too much, you could end up with a lawn that’s nowhere near green. Excessive watering can cause your roots to rot and in the process, create a nice home for disease and fungus.
A green lawn is something every homeowner wants, and if you follow the four tips on this list, it’s something that can easily be achieved. Just remember that if you want a green lawn, then you need to create a place where grass loves to grow. You can do this by using amendments, like Ground Breaker and TurfMAX, that intelligently nourish, treat, and correct.
