Winter in Texas, when temperatures are often chilly and snowy, maybe particularly harsh for your home’s lawn. Maintaining a healthy and lush lawn over the winter months is more challenging. Any adjustments you make now may have a huge influence on the quality of your grass the following year, so plan accordingly. Listed below are some of the lawn-damaging impacts of the cold weather.
Damaged and Frozen
Cold weather may lead grass blades to become brittle, which may seem to be something out of a scientific knowledge novel at first glance. Therefore, they are especially sensitive to traffic caused by humans on the sidewalk. You run the risk of your grass snapping completely through, further weakening it and causing it to die. Even though winter weather may be devastating to grass, you can lessen the damage by restricting your outside activities during periods of severely cold weather. The fact that the ground is not covered with a thick layer of snow is especially true in the winter.
Spring’s Unpleasant Thawing
As spring approaches, it’s possible that your grass could develop large, brown, dead patches. The harsh, sub-zero temperatures of winter are to blame. During the colder months, the snow cover on your lawn provided warmth, which may have contributed to the growth of germs and diseases among your lawn’s plants. Assist in defrosting parts of your lawn that get little or no direct sunshine. The spring thaw may be a nuisance, but a skilled landscaper may help.
