Severe low temperatures, ice, and continual wet conditions caused by snow and the subsequent melt can raise havoc on grass and bedding plants. As winter turns to spring, lawns often show damage that occured during the coldest months including vole (mice), snow mold (fungus disease) and road salt damage. These things as well as temperature fluctuations, snowfall volume and sun exposure can be very destructive to lawns. Lawns usually fill-in as conditions warm in spring, but it takes some special attention to cause and effect.
Plants and trees are also susceptible to winter damage. Heavy snows and erratic temperatures may cause limbs to break or crack in both trees and plants. Barks and outer foliage may also have been victims of hungry animals short on a winter food supply.
Again, we welcome the opportunity to bring the shine back to your lawn, trees, and beds. March is not too early to begin to assess the winter’s damage and make a plan to set things right. Our expertise includes bed maintenance, fertilization, aeration and pruning.
