As winter time comes, not many people are keen on performing gardening tasks, and for good reason. Chances are the soil is frozen and most plants are already in a state of hibernation. So there really isn’t much to do for soil treatment – or so it would seem.
The reality of the situation is that your lawn can be damaged quite easily by the cold and the snow, and it will require support to prevent it from suffering weakness, disease and even death.
Before winter it’s important to aerate your lawn, inspect the grass for damage and disease (and treat it accordingly, if necessary), and mow it one last time during the late autumn. Lawn mowing is no longer necessary in the winter, since the grass barely grows at all.
Another thing you have to do is use a special type of winter fertilizer to fertilize your lawn before winter. Fertilization is important, since the grass will need all the nutrients it can get during this time, as it won’t receive much from nature. A good approach is to feed your lawn and water it one last time, then continue to water it as needed once every few weeks. Of course, if precipitation is present, less water will be needed overall.
