It’s January, and you may be thinking that there is nothing to consider when it comes to your lawn during this cold month. Wrong! It’s true that the most important time for your lawncare just passed as fall gave way to winter; however, there are still a few things that you can do to ensure a healthy lawn.

Clean Your Lawn!

It is very important for you to make sure that your lawn is free of debris. This time of year, the leaves have fallen, sticks litter the ground, and that newspaper full of ads that you don’t want often sits in your lawn. Go pick those up…all of it! Leaves, sticks, newspapers, and other items left on your lawn suffocate your grass. This also invites diseases to these covered areas. Do this now so you don’t have a spotty and diseased lawn come spring!

Minimize Traffic

No matter what time of year it is, you never want to allow repetitive traffic on your lawn. This mats down the grass and eventually creates an unwanted path. A lawn can be even more vulnerable to traffic during the dormant season. And, whatever you do, please avoid walking on a frozen or frosted lawn. This is not good for your grass at all.

Avoid Water

If you haven’t already done the following, I want you to do this right away after you finish reading this. It is very important to keep water from forming inside your gas tanks and cans. Whether you purchase ethanol or non-ethanol gas, water still forms in your containers. The best thing to do is fill your gas tanks and cans all the way up. Next, add the proper amount of a product such as Stabil. Doing this will eliminate the water, allow your engines to start right up in the spring, and keep you from spending money at the mechanic shop in March.

Protect Your Home

Now that the leaves have all fallen from the trees, your gutters are undoubtedly full and possibly clogged. Clogged gutters create many issues to your home that can become quite costly. Get out the ladder and spend a couple of hours to make sure your gutters are working properly so that you don’t spend a great deal of money later.

If you are unable or simply don’t want to take care of any of the items listed above, then give us a call, and we will gladly come out and take care of these things for you at a fair price with exceptional service.
