A green lawn and manicured landscaping isn’t just a summer task! You need to dedicate time and attention to care for your grass and landscaping year-round. The best way to do that is to make sure you take winterization seriously. We at the Precision Landscaping Corporation recommend that you take these steps to get your outdoor areas ready for winter weather.

1. Aerate and apply the proper fertilizer.

Your grass needs time to breathe and the proper nutrients to make it through the winter. If you want your grass to emerge green and lush next spring, then take some time both to aerate and fertilize your lawn in the fall. Aeration removes small plugs of soil, allowing oxygen and nutrients to get down to the roots. You will also want to choose the proper winterizing fertilizer formulated for your Cleveland lawn.

2. Get rid of leaves.

Raking away those piles of leaves can be quite a chore. However, leaf removal is important to lawn and landscaping health over the winter months. Plus, soggy brown leaves can just make your landscaping look cluttered and gross. Get rid of those leaves!

3. Winterize your sprinkler system.

If you’ve invested in a lawn irrigation system, you want to protect that investment! Each year, your sprinkler system needs to be winterized for optimal performance and protection. Leaving water in the line or not taking care of repairs may only cause further damage.
