Protect Your Property From Snow Plow Damage

4 Min

Oh yes, wait a minute Mr. Snow Plow! Winter is officially here and in many parts of Canada, white snow is starting to blanket the front and back yards of many a property. 

Mother Nature aside, some of the most severe damage that can happen to a lawn over the winter months is often the most preventable. Snow removal equipment that is used to plow, blow, and remove snow can easily - and unintentionally - damage the turf when the boundaries aren’t properly identified, much to the chagrin of homeowners. The edges from the road, driveway, sidewalk and along walkways are most vulnerable to harm, and can result in extensive damage if not properly monitored during the winter months.

No, low temperature kill is not a Christmas-themed action movie starring Bruce Willis as the title character.

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.
