What REALLY happens to your lawn in winter?
Your grass may look dead, but in fact it’s quite alive. When winter arrives, the grass usually goes dormant. But, don’t worry, once temperatures begin to warm up, the grass will “wake up.”
It’s not too early to start thinking about turf rejuvenation
While your turf will naturally “wake up” after dormancy, it can suffer from winter injury. To ensure that your turf is healthy this spring, take these steps and begin thinking about spring rejuvenation.
1. Stay off the lawn if it’s frozen. Turf is more sensitive to being crushed when frozen, so do your best to stay off the grass this winter!
2. Start thinking about adding a probiotic to strengthen turf and soil health in the early spring. At Vivid Lawn we use Holganix, which allows us to jump-start the biology in the soil after a harsh winter, helping the lawn recover from winterkill.
