What Happens to Your Lawn During the Winter?  5 of 9 Winter Desiccation

Add winter desiccation to the long list of what can happen to your lawn during the winter months.  Winter Desiccation takes place when the turfgrass plant is in its dormant or semi-dormant stages and can cause varying degrees of damage severity.  All turfgrass species are prone to winter desiccation if the right conditions persist.  Winter Desiccation occurs when the leaves and other parts of the turfgrass plant are damaged often to the point of death because its roots are unable to supply enough water to keep up with the amount of water the turfgrass plant is losing to the atmosphere.

What Happens to Your Lawn During the Winter?   4 of 9 - Crown Hydration

Crown Hydration continues to be one of the most destructive yet least preventable forms of winter kill that causes damage to a lawn.  Crown hydration commonly occurs during the late winter months when warmer daytime temperatures cause the snow to melt followed by rapid freezing temperatures.  The worst affected areas are in the low lying, poorly drained soils that are prone to standing water.  Under these conditions the turfgrass crown begins to absorb water and become saturated.  Extreme temperature fluctuations cause thawing and rapid refreezing creating ice crystals in the turfgrass plant cells that ultimately rupture and cause plant death.

What Happens to Your Lawn in the Winter?  2 of 9 - ICE DAMAGE

The effects of Ice coverage can cause varying degrees of lawn damage depending on the severity of the ice coverage, the length of exposure, and the hardiness of the turfgrass species effected.   Where snow coverage is generally considered desirable with the exception of the increased risk for snow mold disease, ice coverage on the other hand is more of a concern and is undesirable often causing more severe lawn ice damage that requires renovation practices to speed up recovery.

What Happens to Your Lawn In The Winter? 1 of 9 - Snow Coverage

Depending on what part of the country you live in, the amount of snow coverage and the length of time the lawn is covered by snow can be significantly different region by region. The majority of Canada with the exception of the coastal regions in British Columbia regularly experience consistent snowfall and snow coverage for the better part of 3 – 4 months (specifically December through March). With that being said, these areas can be faced with winter lawn damage that’s caused by snow coverage.
