Most people think about the lawn for only a portion of the year but in reality there are a lot of things that people do to the lawn and for the lawn during the winter months…and certainly the lead in to winter and exit from it.
In fact there are a lot of winter lawn care mistakes people make all the time without even realizing it, so much in fact that I made a full video on the topic that I’ve included below.
Before you watch the video however I want you to know that winter prep is a foundational part of early season lawn care and your snow management practices affect your lawn in ways that most people never think about.
Lower on this page you’ll find my guides to all of the topics relevant to the cold season outside and around the house. I’ve grouped the guides together by topic for your convenience.
But first, watch this video; it’ll give you a good idea of some of the important things you may be overlooking between Thanksgiving and St. Patrick’s Day.
