The cold months are fast approaching, leaving you with a narrow window to prepare for winter. It’s time to fix the heating, sweep the chimney, clean the gutters, and caulk the outside of your house. But, just as importantly, now is the time to start thinking about your lawn.

Get a Lush, Green Yard for 2023

With winter right around the corner, it’s time to prep your yard. That means taking the necessary actions to ensure you have a functional yard for 2023. Because the last thing you need is to start the new year off with a muddy, wilted lawn. 

That’s why we recommend that homeowners switch to artificial grass. Artificial turf lets homeowners enjoy a usable wintertime lawn, with little to no maintenance.

4 Reasons to Upgrade to Artificial Turf Before Winter:

1. Say Goodbye to Vole Damage

Natural grass creates a miniature ecosystem that attracts pests, like insects and rodents. Artificial grass doesn’t. It’s plastic, so animals can’t use it as a food source, and it’s thick backings prevent voles from burrowing into your yard.

2. Be Ready When Spring Comes

Snow melt leaves grass lawns flooded with mud and muck. This leaves you with two options: brave the mud and ruin your carpets, or avoid using your lawn until warmer weather dries it off.

The third option would be to ditch living grass altogether and switch to a turf yard. Artificial turf offers exceptional drainage compared to traditional lawns, so it won’t flood from heavy snow melt. And because turf lawns don’t have dirt, they don’t become muddy. With artificial grass you can actually enjoy your yard while your neighbors are stuck in the mud.

Snow melt can also lead to grass mold, which harms your lawn and can trigger asthma and allergy attacks. Grass mold develops after snow piles up on the surface of the grass, and as it melts, it co-mingles with organic matter, such as leaves, twigs and dead grass. Grass mold leaves lawns looking gray, brittle, and on the brink of death.

Artificial turf eliminates the threat of grass mold because it isn’t made from organic materials, and it drains water much quicker than natural lawns.

3. Free Up Time to Spend with Loved Ones

By switching to turf, you’ll no longer need to aerate, fertilize, or blow out the sprinklers in preparation for the wintertime, giving you more time to enjoy with friends and family this holiday season. 

4. Stay Fit and Active All Winter Long

Winter can be tough on natural grass. Not only do you need to aerate and fertilize it before the frost hits, it also becomes unusable in the winter. Walking on frozen, dormant grass severely weakens it, leaving your lawn in poor shape come spring. 

Turf doesn’t need to be prepped for the snow and frost. You can leave it as is and still enjoy a lush green lawn come springtime. If you do clear the ice and snow off a turf lawn, you can use it all winter long! From holiday football matches to sipping hot cocoa in your lawn chair, artificial turf is a great way to stay active during the winter — all without leaving the comfort of your home. All that fresh air and sunshine will do wonders for your mental health.
