I participated in a campaign on behalf of Influence Central for TruGreen. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Anyone who reads my blog is sure to know that I love gardening and taking care of my home’s landscape! That’s why I get so bummed when winter comes along! There is not much to do to my home’s landscape! So, I was surprised to learn recently from lawn care specialist TruGreen that there is stuff I should be doing now to make sure that my home’s lawn and landscape is looking great once spring arrives!
I learned from TruGreen that there is something called “snow mold” that can destroy my home’s lawn! Luckily, all my husband and I need to do to protect our lawn from snow mold is keep it trim until the first winter frost. Easy! It’s also a good idea to thatch and to remove leavess from the lawn, since leaves can suffocate grass. Luckily, my husband used our lawn mower’s mulching attachment when he recently mowed the lawn. He also very sweetly covered my garden beds with a layer of mulched leaves to protect my spring bulbs from the cold! TruGreen also suggests putting up winter windbreakers to protect plants during the winter. I need to do that, since the bushes I’ve planted in the backyard for privacy takes a beating from winter winds!
TruGreen has provided me with a very helpful infographic on winter lawn care with tips on how to protect lawns and plants from winter’s harsh conditions, so I thought I’d share:
I just visited TruGreen’s website, and found out that my husband and I can sign up for TruGreen lawn care service now so I will be assured a prompt appointment with TruGreen once spring arrives! That sounds like a good idea! I love gardening, but I don’t do much of the maintenance for my home’s lawn — it’s mainly my husband’s job. It’s a job that he’s not too fond of!
