Maintaining your lawn and landscaping requires continuous work all year long, even as you get ready for the off-season. Winterizing your lawn and landscaping is a big job, and if you put it off now, you will suffer the consequences in the spring. Winterizing your property will keep it healthier and it will require less work to get it back into shape when the warm weather returns.

What Needs to Be Done to Winterize Your Lawn

Before you can pack in your landscaping responsibilities for the winter, there are several things you need to think about to keep your lawn healthy. Before your lawn can be “put to bed” for the winter, it’s a good idea to aerate, reseed (or overseed), and address any crabgrass issues you had. While crabgrass may seem like an issue for the spring, it does need to be addressed in the fall as well. If you proactively apply a herbicide in the fall or early winter, you can help avoid any crabgrass seeds taking root when the spring growing season begins. To finish the winterization, you’ll want a thorough lawn sweep to control all the fallen leaves and branches and make sure that your lawn is clear before the winter weather comes.

Your landscaping could also use a thorough clean-up this fall. All the beds will need to be cleaned out. Old mulch, fallen leaves, branches, and other landscaping “clutter” should be cleared. Shrubs and flowering plants will need to be trimmed and properly winterized according to their own specifications. As different annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees have different requirements, you will need to make sure that you are winterizing all your beds properly.
