Blog Winter Wonderland: Expert Snow Management Tips for Your Lawn May 03, 2024

Winter has arrived, and with it comes the beauty of snow-covered landscapes. While snow can transform your lawn into a winter wonderland, it also requires proper management to ensure the health and beauty of your outdoor space. As the experts in Landscape and Lawn Care, Grangers Yard and Snow are here to provide you with some expert snow management tips for your lawn.

1. Clear snow regularly: It is important to regularly remove snow from your lawn to prevent it from accumulating and causing damage to your grass. Use a snow shovel or a snow blower to clear the snow after each snowfall.

2. Avoid using salt: While salt is commonly used to melt snow and ice on sidewalks and driveways, it can be harmful to your lawn. Salt can damage grass and soil, so it is best to use alternative ice melters that are safe for your lawn.

3. Protect your plants: Be mindful of snow piles that may be covering your plants and shrubs. Heavy snow can weigh down on plants and cause damage. Use a broom to gently brush off snow from your plants to prevent any harm.

4. Create walkways: To prevent damage to your grass, create designated walkways for foot traffic in your lawn. This will help avoid compacting the snow on your grass and protect it from damage.

5. Hire a professional: If snow management seems overwhelming or if you simply don't have the time, consider hiring a professional Landscape and Lawn Care service like Grangers Yard and Snow. Our team of experts can handle all your snow management needs efficiently and effectively.

Winter may bring its own set of challenges, but with proper snow management, you can ensure that your lawn remains healthy and beautiful throughout the season. Follow these expert tips from Grangers Yard and Snow to keep your lawn in top shape this winter.
