Here at Mesa Turf Masters, your premier Vail CO lawn care company, we’re here to help your lawn prepare for the winter months. While it’s important to keep in mind that if your lawn is under any stress going into winter, it’s less likely to get through winter without additional damage, sometimes it’s simply hard to make time to do the things you need to do. Don’t worry, that’s where we come in to help. We’ve got some tips for you today, but if you don’t have time or if you’re unable to perform these preparations we’re happy to come out and help.

1. One proactive measure that you can take for winter is to completely clear your lawn from any debris such as leaves, grass clippings, and twigs. This will make your life easier in the spring because you’ll taking measures to prevent snow mold and grass matting.

2. Even though the temperatures are dropping, don’t put that mower away just yet. We say that it’s best to gradually cut your grass shorter, eventually reducing its length to 2.5 inches by winter.

3. We also suggest getting core aeration done to allow for water and air to reach the root zone faster. We highly suggest that you call us to let us do this for you!
