"There's one good thing about snow, it makes your lawn look as nice as your neighbour's." Clyde Moore
As always, try to keep off the grass when it’s frosty or has a light dusting of snow. It’s also a time for observation. Look for areas of the lawn that might become shaded come spring and summer and take steps if you can to cut back overhanging shrubs and branches. Signs of disease may be evident and you can make notes on areas to be treated. There may be evidence of ‘fairy rings’ - those areas tales of superstition and myth told us were caused by a circle of dancing pixies. Fruiting mushrooms and toadstools, some poisonous and funghi generally colonising the soil, are the more likely cause. Consider, as you put your (bootless) feet up to rest, your plans for the lawn and your regime next year for a verdant sward.
