December: Lawns

I bet you thought you were done with lawns for this season! In truth, you are if you have winterized and stored your mower (complete with cleanup, drained oil and gas, replaced spark plugs, oil and air filters).

Just two things need a mention:
1) Don't wait for the last leaf to fall before raking leaves off your lawn. Prolonged coverage with dense leaves can actually kill lawn grasses outright or foster disease and/or insect infestation.
2)Do not walk on your lawn when the grass blades are frozen. The blades break off at ground level and many will not re-grow in the Spring.
