As the winter season passes, it is important to ensure that your garden is well maintained. With changing sun positions and decreased direct sunlight, increased shade, lower daylight hours, and lower soil temperatures, it allows the grass to become more vulnerable and difficult to repair during spring and summer seasons.
This is why it is important to ensure that your garden is getting the right tender, love and care for this winter. By keeping your garden in top shape this winter, your garden can look fresh and healthy just in time for spring:
In order to make sure that your lawn is able to breathe properly, it’s important to swipe up any fallen leaves every so often during the winter season. It is also recommended to cut any oversized trees or bushes beforehand, to prevent your lawn from being vulnerable in areas that are covered.
During the winter season, it is important to not over water your lawn since it can spread the risk of diseases or rotting. This is because the soil and air temperatures are reduced during the winter season.
Avoid Heavy Traffic
Avoid having any heavy traffic in your garden until the soil dries out – foot traffic and hard raking can compact or disturb soggy soil and damage tender, new grass shoots.
