Winterizing your Lawn

Fall is a great time to work on your lawn and garden. The temperatures are cooler, giving you a reason to spend more time outside. A little preparation now on your yard will go a long way next spring and summer. Here are a few lawn and garden tips to consider as you prepare for winter:

  • Replace dead grass with St. Augustine sod. Weeds will sprout in the dead patches if you don’t.
  • Winterize the lawn with an organic, slow release fertilizer.
  • Remove dead leaves, foliage and other debris to keep pests from hibernating there over the winter.
  • Keep the moisture level up in your compost pile. Use a garden hose to water your pile as needed.
  • Apply pre-emergent weed control such as corn gluten or Barricade to prevent weeds from sprouting.
  • Add a 3” layer of mulch to protect roots and maintain moisture while keeping weeds to a minimum.
  • Feed, spray and water you roses as usual, but do not prune them!
