How to Prepare My Yard Before Cleveland's Winter

Prepare Your Lawn for Cleveland's Winter

The days are getting shorter and the temperature is dropping. Clevelanders are starting to make the necessary preparations for winter: Homeowners are starting to seal the windows and doors, driveway markers are starting to pop up and gutters are being cleaned out. But in the preparations for winter, you cannot forget your lawn. There are several things that you need to do to prepare your lawn for the long winter.

Fall Yard Preparations 

As the weather starts to get cooler and fall is fast approaching, your lawn actually starts to slow its growing. You may start going from cutting your grass every week to every other or even every two weeks. Soon after the temperature begins to drop, you'll probably start noticing leaves gathering in your yard and flower beds. It can be very easy to let your lawn maintenance go. But, landscapers say that taking a few extra steps in the fall can really help your lawn bounce back in the spring.

Take Care of Your Lawn and Flower Beds

So before the snow hits, it is important to take care of your lawn and flower beds. Apply a good fertilizer to your lawn before you do the final mowing for the season. This last fall fertilization will provide your lawn with the necessary nutrients to get it through the long winter and help it to start growing again in the spring after the thaw.

Rake Your Leaves

With fall come the leaves. Make sure you rake the leaves up off the lawn and out of the flower beds before the snow hits. Raking the leaves up will help your lawn to breathe easier. If you have leaves laying on your lawn over the winter, you are creating like a blanket. Your lawn cannot get the sunlight or the air it needs in the spring to start growing.

After the lawn has been fertilized and the leaves raked, be sure to mow it one last time. Leaving your lawn in good shape in fall means it will be in good shape in the spring.

Snow Removal

After your lawn is all cleaned and fertilized you now need to think about the snow removal. Many landscapers also work through the winter by doing snow removal. Someone that has the big equipment can make things easier on you because they can knock out the plowing in a couple passes and then be on their way. There is no need for you to possibly hurt yourself lifting the heavy snow.
