A healthy lawn all year long.

December is a period of rest for your lawn but a great time for you to begin the groundwork for next season.

Dates may vary by geographic location and turfgrass species. Choose practices based on your lawn’s specific needs.

Things to do in December:

  • Reduce lawn traffic—let it rest.
  • Clean and winterize lawn equipment.
  • Reflect on the growing season. This a perfect time to complete a Site Assessment in preparation for next year.
