With the holidays quickly approaching, you may be thinking about all of the presents you will soon need to buy, the decorations you will place in your home and the gatherings you may host. In your preparations for all of the fun and excitement brought about by the holiday season, it can be easy to forget how important it is to prepare your lawn for drier and colder weather. South Carolina lawns need different types of care and attention in each season of the year.
One of the most important steps to get your yard and landscaping ready for the winter is to prepare your lawn. Winter is naturally drier than other times of the year, and lawns will need a careful balance of water and maintenance to thrive during even the coldest months. Winterizing your grass is an important part of protecting the investment you made in creating a beautiful yard, and the first part of this is to know the type of grass you have. The type of grass determines the specific things you will need to do, including watering and fertilizing at certain times.
Depending on the type of grass you have in your yard, this may be a good time of year to fertilize the lawn. This can provide nutrients that will be critical whether the grass will be dormant until the spring or it’s a cold-season grower. During these months, many types of grass will store nutrients in the roots, and fertilization at the right time can lead to greener and healthier grass during the spring and summer.
