Greetings Lawn Enthusiast,

Most of us do not think about our lawns in February.  For many of us our lawns are buried under snow and brown colored from the cold weather.  We are here to tell you that it is never too early to start thinking about your lawn for the spring.  Here are a few Timely Tips for the month of February and what you should do for your lawn.

Should you worry about snow mold?

Snow mold is a common fungal turfgrass disease that can occur from November to April.  There are two types of snow mold: pink and grey.  It appears as circular dead patches of grass that are either pinkish or gray in color.  Excessive snow or leaf coverage or too much fertilizer being applied in the winter months can promote snow mold.  Oftentimes these areas need to be reseeded in the spring.  We recommend using Jonathan Green Black Beauty Ultra grass seed to repair these damaged areas.

Weeds in the winter

If the temperature has been particularly mild in your region or if you are located in the southern part of the United States you may notice weed growth.  Weeds may appear in February if the temperature hovers between 40 to 50 degrees.  Oftentimes homeowners see chickweed, onion grass and clovers in their lawns.  It is best to wait and control these weeds during the actively growing months of March through May.  Try Jonathan Green Lawn Weed Control to handle these weeds.

Mice are not nice

Have you noticed burrows trailing across your lawn this winter?  You may have mice.  Mice tend to be active in the lawn looking for food even during the winter months.  They oftentimes dig in landscape beds and create an unsightly yard.  The best control for mice is when they are most active during the months of April through November.  Their burrows may require reseeding parts of your lawn.  Try Jonathan Green Lawn Repair Made Easy or Black Beauty Ultra depending on the size of the area.
