While your lawn may not require as much care in the winter as it does in spring, summer, and fall, you don’t want to ignore it completely. To ensure it will be in good shape come springtime, let Oakley's Lawn Care help you keep your yard ready to look the best it can when spring rolls around.
Just before your area’s first expected frost date, your lawn will need to be aerated. Aerating your lawn will give it a chance to breathe before the grass goes dormant, and help relieve any compaction that has built up during the warmer months. We have all the equipment needed to help you with this.
After you’ve opened up your lawn, it’s a good time to fertilize with a high quality fertilizer. Fertilizing your lawn gives your grass the essential nutrients it needs as it prepares for winter. The grass roots absorb and store the nutrients during the winter months. Then, in the spring, your lawn taps into those stored nutrients giving it a head start, making it green and lush. By having a properly cared-for lawn, you’ll also help prevent weeds, pests, and diseases from moving in once it warms up.
Keep Your Lawn Clean
There’s a good chance that leaves have piled up on your lawn during fall and because of that your lawn could suffocate before winter. Leaves that are left on the lawn could also become too wet, which can invite disease. If the leaves are not too thick or wet, mulch the leaves with your mower into dime-sized pieces to recycle the nutrients back into your lawn. If the leaves are too thick, wet, or matted down, rake them up and remove them. Oakley's Lawn Care is prepared to take care of any lawn clean-up and maintenance for you.
Snow Removal Services
Snow removal can be dangerous, but it is also tedious and can be time-consuming. Snow and ice increase the risk of accidents such as slipping and falling. Neglecting your driveway may also leave you with costly repairs in spring. Even using salt and de-icing products can be harmful to your pavement. At Oakley's Lawn Care, we have the equipment and the know-how to clean off driveways, sidewalks, and other problem areas where ice and snow accumulate.
