Five Winter Lawn and Landscape Tips

As winter comes into full swing, follow these five landscape tips to prepare your vegetation for the colder months.



  1. Gradually lower the mowing height of your mower. Any young growth makes your lawn more vulnerable to winter diseases which can leave you with a dried out brown winter lawn. However, trim the lawn gradually in several steps to avoid suddenly removing all the green leaf tissue and damaging the turf.
  2. Clear your lawn of any debris that can smother your grass. Toys, kid pools, and other items should not be left of the grass and turf, especially if you live in a climate that may cause snow.
  3. In late fall, be sure to give your lawn a final fertilization. Inactive during winter, your lawn won't use the fertilizers immediately but will store these nutrients in its root system and process them at the first signs of spring.
  4. Aerate your lawn before the season’s first frost. A thorough aeration coupled with fertilization, will set the stage for healthy spring vegetation and growth.
  5. Research what plants thrive in your region. Apply this knowledge when planning your spring planting.
Our team of REALTORS can help guide you this season as you prepare your home for sale. Contact us any time at 626-358-1858 - Monrovia or 626-963-7621 - Glendora.
