Surveying for Damage after Winter

Once winter is gone, it’s time for you to go out and look for signs of seasonal damage. As the weather starts to warm up, it’s vital check for damage and to make a plan to get your yard ready for springtime.

Trees and Shrubs

Trees and shrubs bear the brunt of snowfall damage. Look around your property for any branches that are broken or damaged. Prune these damaged parts or have them removed by a professional service.

Care for the Lawn

To reinvigorate soil, give your lawn a deep daily watering. Check for brown patches in your lawn. Winter snowfall can kill grass. Check to see if there is any green tissue beginning to emerge. If you find green tissue, that’s a sign that the brown area will probably recuperate. If not, and other areas of the lawn are doing much better, it’s time to make a lawn repair action plan. To repair the damaged area, rake up as much of the dead grass as you can. Adding a light layer of topsoil will help increase the chances of success when your new seedlings begin to grow.

Investing time in a full inspection of potential weather harm created by the unforgiving conditions of winter can locate small trouble areas and give you some remedies to stave off bigger problems later. Your lawn care and landscape professional can also help you make sure the trouble areas are fixed before you are ready for summer fun.
