You’ve most likely heard of winterizing a pool or a house, but did you know that your lawn needs to be winterized as well? For grass to be healthy and ready to flourish with the spring rise in temperature, you first need to give a lawn everything it needs to undergo cooler weather. In Texas, your lawn can begin being prepped for the winter months as early as mid-September.
Will having your lawn properly treated for winter really make a difference?
Yes. Without proper treatment, grass growth will be stunted and can turn yellow in color. Winter pre-emergent will slow down growth rate and increase plant levels of potassium (K). Potassium is essentially like carbs for your lawn; it helps the grass grow. Other positive influences Potassium has on plants includes higher resistance towards diseases and an increased tolerance amid droughts.
Potassium is no exception to the “too much of anything is bad” rule. An overdose of potassium throughout your lawn can disrupt the way soil absorbs other critical nutrients such as calcium, nitrogen, magnesium, manganese, and iron.
Balance is key to seeing your lawn return to its beautiful healthy green state. A thorough understanding of what a lawn needs, when it needs it, and how much it needs are all areas that must be considered.
To make lawn care effective and convenient for many throughout our community, we created our Annual Lawn Care Schedule designed to give you healthy green grass year after year. Contact Higher Ground Lawn Care & Lighting and tell us the change you want to see in your plant life.
“He is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth” 2 Samuel 23:4
