Preventing Frost damage in your Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho turf.

It’s December in the Treasure Valley and the temperatures have been below freezing for some time.  The usually vibrant green of the grass is turning brown as the grass begins to enter a period of dormancy.  Even though it looks like it is dying, the grass is still alive and will green up again in the spring.  But if we are hit with extreme cold temperatures and moisture isn’t allowed to reach the roots of the grass, your grass could get winter frost burn and be damaged. 

Grass can also be damaged in the winter from too much traffic.  In the cold and freezing months you should avoid walking, playing, parking and driving on the grass.  Grass is pretty resilient but has a harder time recovering from well worn paths that occur during dormancy.  Try to keep you sidewalks and driveways cleared of snow so that there will be less temptation to walk through the yard.  Leaving cars or other objects on frozen turf will at the least make those areas more susceptible to weeds in the spring and at the worst result in dead spots. 



At Organic Solutions! Inc., we strive to give you the healthiest lawn all year long.  Our organic fertilizer can help your lawn revive quicker and look more vibrant in the spring.  If you would like to receive a free estimate for our fertilization and weed control programs, please contact us!

Giving the gift of professional lawn care in Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho.

Having a healthy green lawn takes time and energy on a weekly basis from April to October.  Between the weekly mowing  and the seasonal fertilization applications, it can be a little overwhelming. There may be some people in your life who struggle to maintain their lawn either because of age, physical limitations, or because of their busy schedule.  

As people age, they naturally slow down and many elderly people come to a place where caring for their lawn is no longer advisable.  This can be especially true in the heat of summer when the dangers of sunburn, dehydration and sunstroke is so high. 

It is also a possibility that one person in the household may be acting as a caregiver to their elderly or disabled spouse, parent, or other family member.  Caregivers often find themselves short on time and running on empty as they try to take care of day to day responsibilities.  Having to maintain the lawn as well can often be more than they can handle.

Often those who fall into the above categories live on limited incomes or are besieged by medical bills and cannot afford to hire a professional lawn care company to do the work for them. 

If you would like to give the gift of lawn care services to a parent, friend, or neighbor who needs it, Contact us for a free estimate.  It may be the best gift they ever received.
