Winter Lawn Care

Winter Lawn Care

Winter lawn care may be less intense than lawn care during other seasons, but there are a few things you can do to ensure that your yard is off to a fresh start once spring rolls around again. When the cold weather truly hits, here are some tips on how to maintain your yard through the colder months.

Winter Lawn Care 101

One Last Mow

If you are reading this prior to the first snowfall where you live, you may want to consider one final mow before the ground freezes. Making sure that your grass is short at the end of the season will protect new growth. Also, leaving grass too tall through winter can lead to burrowing animals damaging your lawn by creating dead spots and pulling up grass to create nests. If you don’t have time to mow or have already winterized your mowing equipment, call LawnGuru!

Fertilize For Winter

If you live in North America, there’s a good chance that your yard is made up of cool-season grasses like Bermuda or Bluegrass. If this is the case for your yard, you should fertilize your lawn before the first freeze. Late fall and early winter are the best times to fertilize your lawn because not only will you be replacing nutrients that have been lost from your soil during warmer months, but the fertilizer will remain in the soil and feed your lawn’s roots all winter long. Come spring, your lawn will be lush, green, and ready for some TLC from LawnGuru.

How To Market Your Snow Plowing Business

Unlike lawn season, snow season is time sensitive. Having a couple extra inches of green in the summer can be an eyesore, but having a few extra inches of snow in the winter can be the difference between going to work or working from home.

 

=&0=& your snow plowing business is completely different from marketing a lawn mowing business.

Snow Plowing Business vs. Lawn Mowing Business:

  1. Snow season is shorter than mow season.
  2. Snow doesn’t exactly fall at the same rate that grass grows.
  3. Snow services often take place at odd hours to ensure that customers’ driveways are clear by morning.
  4. Snow service is urgent and time sensitive, so the service window is much shorter.
