Preparing your property for the long Connecticut Winter.

With the cold weather approaching, it’s important to prepare your lawn for the winter months. Connecticut winters can be long and cold so it is important to make sure your lawn remains healthy and ready for spring. Fall yard and lawn maintenance practices are vital to build up the tolerance of your lawn and plants to the potentially damaging temperature fluctuations and diseases rampant in winter. To prevent winter and cold damage follow these tips to help you prepare your Connecticut lawn and landscaping before the cold sets in.

1. Mow Your Lawn: the most important thing you can do for your lawn prior to winter is mow your grass. If you leave your grass long heading into winter, during snowfall your grass could rot on top of itself, causing serious damage to your lawn that will last well into spring.
2. Trim Hedges, Trees, and Plants: it is important to prune your hedges, trees, and plants to remove any decaying portions. Doing this will improve the health of your plants and get them looking great for spring!
3. Rake leaves and debris regularly making sure you keep debris off your lawn heading into winter is important, too! Just like long grass, removing leaves and other plant debris is important to the overall health of your lawn.
4. Pre-Mulch: you can already begin prepping for your spring landscaping, as well. About 2 inches of mulch in your flower beds will act as a shield for the roots of your plants, helping them survive the winter.
5. Aeration: Aeration is one of the most important aspects of winterizing your lawn. Aeration reduces thatch and soil compaction, while improving drainage and loosening the soil.
