Important Facts About Winter Frost Damage

4 Min

A certain festive holiday is around the corner, and we at Nutri-Lawn couldn't be more excited about it. This year, give your winter lawn the gift of peace and quiet for Christmas by not walking over it when it's covered in frost!  

Depending on where you live in Canada, you've probably started to notice some silver frost blanketing your grass and gardens in the early morning and late evening. While it may be pleasing to the eye if caught in the right light, frost can actually be a real problem for your lawn if not properly monitored. Foot traffic, parked cars and snow plows, pets and kids running amok... these are all common but avoidable actions that can damage grass in winter.

Learn More About Your Dormant Lawn

3 Min

In hot and dry weather, homeowners across Canada start to wonder what is going on with their brown lawns. It's important to know that when lawns go brown in the summer due to lack of rain and high periods of heat, they are not dead - they are just dormant.
