It is that time of the year again, the snow has started. But when you break out the shovel do you ever forget where your walkway or your driveway ends, and your lawn begins? It is important to protect your lawn against winter. Lawn care is still needed during the winter months.
Mark your lawn
As you shovel you want to make sure you are not hurting your lawn. Putting markers around the edges of your lawn will help you identify where your driveway ends, and your lawn begins. This will prevent you from hitting your lawn and digging up soil. Shoveled snow is heavier than normal snow, so make sure you do not have any precious plants in harm’s way. Identifying the area of your lawn will save its edges from snow removal tools.
Snow is a good thing
Snow acts as an insulator for roots and protects your lawn. The blanket of snow provides water for your lawn. It is best to keep an eye on your fragile plants and try to avoid putting extra snow on top of them.
