The cold and rainy season is here in the Pacific Northwest. Now is the time to prepare your lawn for winter. These are the steps that you should be following.

  1. Mow your lawn at regular height until the growth stops. The growth slowdown has already occurred for many lawns.
  2. Apply lime and a winter type fertilizer. This will slowly be absorbed by the grass roots and prepare your lawn for spring growth.
  3. Winterize lawn equipment by changing the oil and emptying the fuel tank. Place into storage.
  4. Remove leaves: Keep your lawn free of leaves so they don’t smother it over the winter.

Then you are ready to enjoy a warm fire and a good book as you wait for the coming of spring.
