February is a critical month for lawn care in the Northeast. With snow, ice damage, and harsh winter winds, it is vital to take the proper steps to prepare your lawn for spring.
Here are some tips for maintaining a healthy and beautiful lawn this month:
- Clearing debris. Remove sticks, leaves, and other debris from your lawn. Help prevent mold and disease from developing during the winter months.
- Monitor for pests. Check for signs of damage from pests that can damage your lawn.
- Plan for spring. Begin planning your spring lawn care activities, such as weed control, aeration, and fertilization.
- Preparing for winter kill. Check for areas of your lawn where the grass has died due to harsh winter winds and other conditions. These areas will need to be reseeded in the spring.
