Winter is here and with the bitter cold temperatures upon us it begs the question, when should you stop worrying about your lawn? Connecticut’s colder climate typically brings lawn maintenance to an end when the ground freezes or frost appears. Late October or early November is when this typically occurs, but with climate unpredictability, areas may push the weather change date back to the beginning of December. Officially, the start of winter in Southeastern Connecticut begins Friday, December 21st. The start of winter and frozen ground signals lawn stopping growth, and mowers able to go into permanent hibernation until the spring.
Your lawn may have stopped growing in the winter, but it doesn’t mean your lawn care calendar has to hibernate with it. Now is the perfect time to plan out how your lawn will grow greener for the springtime. Colonel Landscaping’s Green Season Maintenance calendar begins in April and runs all the way through November. Once April arrives, we will have established a plan that includes fertilizing techniques to help prevent the spread of crabgrass and weeds, grub control, even fertilizer to prepare your lawn for next winter. Colonel Landscaping considers many vital factors when determining a custom lawn care calendar plan such as nitrogen release rate, green up rate, overall growth and results to ensure our controlled-release products deliver steady, consistent results throughout the season.
We will work very hard throughout Connecticut’s growing calendar season to keep your lawn the envy of all the neighborhood.
