Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How high should I leave my grass for the winter?
A: As winter approaches, gradually lower your cut to about 2 inches. This allows leaves to blow off more easily and make your lawn less prone to winter temperatures and conditions.
Q: Should I fertilize before winter?
A: Yes. Your lawn will store the nutrients in the root zone and take advantage of them in early spring.
Q: Is there anything I can do to protect my evergreens from a harsh winter?
A: Yes. “Winter Overcoat” is an anti-dessicant that is sprayed on the evergreens as winter approaches. This will keep the winter winds and cold temperatures from burning the leaves and needles.
Q: Should I prune and fertilize my roses?
A: No. Roses should not be fed after August. The canes can be cut back only slightly so they don’t get damaged. The hard pruning is done in the spring.
