Avoid walking on your lawn.

First and foremost, it’s essential to avoid walking on your lawn during the snowy and cold winter months. Too much traffic can damage dormant seeds and grass laying beneath the snow cover. Grass has always been great at surviving the ice and freezing temperatures in a way that doesn’t damage the blades. However, the pressure of walking and shoveling snow on the grass can prevent healthy growth in the spring. So, while it won’t ruin your lawn, it can leave unsightly brown patches that take longer to fill in.

Clean up your lawn.

Most homeowners know that lawn maintenance consists of cleaning up toys, leaves, and branches before the first snow. Yard clean-up doesn’t take long but can prevent headaches and dead spots once the snow melts. Just like compacting the soil by walking around your yard in the winter, piles of leaves and fallen branches can damage the grass. Although, if you have to choose one over the other, having an open, debris-free yard is better than worrying about your pet running around and enjoying the snowy weather.
