What To Do With Your Lawn After a St. Charles Winter
In areas with moderate climates that experience harsh winters, such as St. Charles, lawns often go dormant. If you have been consistently taking care of your lawn, there isn’t much left to do during this period. However, it’s essential to minimize foot traffic on your dormant lawn to ensure it remains healthy.
Although a moderate amount of foot traffic is permissible, heavily worn areas can cause soil compaction, leading to slower green growth in the spring. Therefore, it’s recommended to avoid walking or playing on your dormant lawn as much as possible. This will help maintain the soil’s integrity and prepare your lawn for healthy regrowth when the weather warms up.Add to Garden Book
