Winterizing Your Lawn

What you need:
Lawn mower
Rake
Nitrogen based fertilizer


Fall is your lawn's favorite time of the year. Take care of it properly during this time to ensure
that your lawn looks its best next spring and summer. Start by raking up any leaves and other
debris. Fallen leaves can smother your lawn as they become wet and decompose. Removing
leaves from your lawn will also help prevent disease problems come spring. If there are any
bare spots in your lawn, re-seed now.

Fertilizing your lawn before the onset of winter is very important. Nitrogen promotes healthy
root growth and allows your lawn to store food for the winter. Fertilize your lawn twice during
the fall. Around Labor Day, apply 3/4 of a pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet of lawn.
Fertilize again after the last time you mow with the same amount of nitrogen. This second
feeding is usually done around mid-November in most parts of the U.S.

Once the grass has stopped growing for the year, give it one last mowing.  Keep the grass
short to prevent it from matting down as winter approaches. If you have excessive thatch
buildup in your lawn, it's a good idea to remove it now as well. Following these easy steps
will guarantee you have a beautiful lawn next year.
