How to protect the lawn from cold temperature is an issue that most homeowners have to deal with during winter. If you live in an area like those in the North, where temperatures are pretty cold as early as November, then you have to consider how you can treat your lawn and what you can do to prepare it for the winter.
Aerating the lawn can be a good option, as it will allow the soil to breathe and prevent it from freezing into a solid block. Aeration can be performed either manually, or with a special gardening tool known as a lawn aerator, which can almost do all the work for you.
It’s important to fertilize your lawn before the freeze sets in. This will ensure that your lawn receives all the important nutrients it needs to stay strong until spring arrives. A “winterizer” fertilizing Revive product is best for this job, as it is designed especially for winter.
Covering your lawn is also a good idea. By covering it with a nylon cover, you can ensure that cold air will not easily get to your soil and that there is a barrier between it and the freezing temperatures in the surrounding environment. Since temperatures are typically warmer underground, your soil will not freeze and compact as easily as it would without a cover.
