A healthy lawn all year long.

February 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 February:

  • Limit traffic until your lawn begins to grow.
  • Properly dispose of unwanted lawn care chemicals. Contact your local solid waste district or recycling center to find a drop-off point or collection center.
  • Hiring a lawn care professional? Ask questions to ensure landscaping practices protect water quality.
