Preparing your Property for the Winter – Lawn Winterization | Hamden, CT

Winter Lawn Preparation - Hamden, CT - Affordable Landscape and Tree Services, LLC.The cold Winter months can put an major strain on your Connecticut lawn, especially if there has been a large amount of snowfall and your grass has been covered for months. The effects of Winter are most often seen in Spring when a lawn is slow to recover, or in worst cases – the lawn actually dies off from the Winter cold. Performing lawn winterization services is an important part of lawn care that must begin during the Fall season. During the hot and humid Summer months, many Connecticut lawns will undergo a recessing period as a way to protect itself from the heat, which makes the Fall season the best time to restore any damages that may have occurred during the Summer.

The goal of winterizing your lawn is to create the most healthy environment possible for your lawn in the Fall season, so it can combat the Winter cold and have a chance to successfully recover in the Spring season. The landscape professionals at Affordable Landscape and Tree Services have complied a list of tips on winterizing your property.

  1. Begin winterization in the Fall: Now that the cool days and nights of the Fall season have begun, it is time to begin the winterization process. The earlier you begin preparing your lawn, the more nutrients your grass and plants will receive during the Winter and the more healthy it will appear in the Spring.
  2. Aerate your lawn: Fall is the optimum time to begin lawn aeration. During the Summer, you lawn will typically receive much more foot traffic which can cause your grass to become quite damaged. The process of lawn aeration entails the disposal of plugs of soil, thatch and turf from the lawns surface. This will allow oxygen to absorb into the thatch layer and into the soil.
  3. Rake leaves, remove tree limbs and debris: In the dreary Connecticut winter season, it is extremely important that your lawn receives as much sunlight as possible in order to stay healthy. The additional leave and debris that can accumulate during the Fall season can cause your lawn to be smothered. It is recommended that you removal all leaves and debris and continue to mow your lawn to the point where frost will begin to appear.
  4. Overseed your lawn: You can repair damage spots by reseeding the areas of your lawn. The Fall season is the perfect time to overseed because there is typically a good amount of rain and the temperature is warm enough to allow the seed to germinate. By planting grass in the Fall, you will be allowing the grass to establish itself before the cold weather appears. If you got a late start on reseeding, it is still possible for you to plant your seeds because the seeds will go dormant so the snow will not hurt them. When the snow melts the seeds will begin to germinate and flourish in the Spring.
  5. Water your Lawn: Watering your lawn for the entire duration of the Fall season will ensure that your grass and shrubs will retain the proper amount of water to survive the Winter months. When the freezing weather arrives, it is important to remember to drain your irrigation system and close of your outdoor faucet to prevent your pipes from bursting. You must also place your hose and sprinkler systems into storage.

We hope that you have found these lawn winterization tips helpful. Remember that the sooner you begin the winterization process for your lawn, the greater results you will receive for your lawn in the Spring.
