Lawn Winterization: Nourish & Renew for Next Spring

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2010) - In autumn, the leaves change color, a new school year begins and your lawn winterization program should also start.

Ever wonder about the secret to a lush, green, spring lawn? The answer is simple: fall lawn winterization and a little planning ahead. Fall is the optimal time to get your lawn healthy. Proper lawn winterization and tree and shrub care during the fall months can nourish your lawn, trees and shrubs and protect them during winter. 

Prepare for Vigorous Growth with Fall Lawn Winterization

Our lawns and landscapes are subject to a lot of wear and tear from turf-eating insects to crabgrass and more. When you start the lawn winterization process today, the promise of a lush, healthy, green lawn can be yours, next spring. Your lawn can greatly benefit from proper care this fall when you follow some essential lawn winterization guidelines.

The fall lawn winterization process should begin with an assessment. Walk your property and inspect your lawns. Identify problem areas in need of treatment. Watch for thinned-out grass patches that appear light green. Also, look for weed and pest infestations, as well as, overgrown shrubs and trees. Aerate and prune to help your lawn breathe and strengthen roots. The moist, warm soil temperatures create an ideal environment to seed bare lawn areas and re-seed healthy grass to improve thickness and density. Replace dead or withering plants. As part of lawn winterization, continue to mow & mulch your lawn well into the fall. For added lawn nutrients, nourish your soil with the fresh grass clippings. With lawn winterization, a good fall feeding provides your lawns, trees and shrubs the energy needed to grow into a healthy, green lawn come spring.
