After the grass has gone dormant and you have put away the lawn equipment, there are still a few things you can do to keep your lawn in top condition.

  • Don't allow leaves to accumulate on the grass. Leaves, especially large ones like maple, sweet gum and sycamore, can smother the lawn, killing the grass. Rake the leaves or chop them up with a mulching mower.
  • If summer and fall were dry in your area, make sure to water the lawn deeply two or three times before the ground freezes.
  • Avoid walking on frost-laden lawns until the frost melts. Walking on frozen grass can damage or break the blades, causing them to turn brown.
