Protecting Your Lawn Through a Winnipeg Winter

The winter season in Manitoba is harsh, with cold temperatures and dry air often stunting your lawn’s growth. As the fall season ends, here are some things you can do to help protect your landscape during the winter time.

Rake the leaves and remove debris: Leaves and debris left on your lawn over the winter months can smother the grass and stunt new growth come spring.

Mow the lawn one last time: Keeping your lawn shorter (about 2-3”) before winter sets in removes weeds and other unwanted plants and helps protect new grass growth by eliminating the competition.

Fertilize it: Fertilizing and aerating your lawn in the fall will give your grass plenty of nutrients to absorb as the snow melts. This will stimulate earlier and more rapid growth in the spring.
