It is a common misconception that your turf can only look its best during the warmer months of the year. When the cold snap hits, most lawns begin to loose their colour, suffer a reduction in growth speed and lack the ability to repair from damage quickly. While heat and sunlight promotes healthy growth and powers the photosynthesis process, a bit of maintenance, TLC and the right mower for your lawn can guarantee your yard appears nourished and inviting all year round.
The secret to maintaining a succulent savannah during the winter months is to consider lawn mower types that avoid trimming the lawn too short. Mowing height has a significant impact on the lawns appearance and health. Longer leaf growth provides greater opportunity for the photosynthesis process which converts nutrients into food for the lawn. Excessive mowing can also lead to early hibernation, hindering the aesthetic and condition of the turf.
The colder conditions during the winter season can also contribute to an excessive growth of thatch. This is a layer within the lawn made up of lifeless organic material, that develops between runner and root system at the base of the turf.
While a thin thatch layer has many benefits to the overall health and appearance of your lawn, unnecessary growth traps excessive amounts of moisture increasing the likelihood of diseases and weeds. It can also damage the durability and texture of the turf, making it more difficult to mow in future. As the weather begins to warm up, mowing can easily cut into the thatch layer, resulting in a once luscious lawn appearing brown and scalped, weakening the grass and leaving it susceptible to disease.
As the climate becomes miserable, your grass doesn’t have to suffer. Our Husqvarna LC19SP is the best lawn mower to ensure healthy green grass for the winter months and all year round.
