Snowmen Are Great, but Bad for Your Lawn
We all love to make Snowmen in the winter. It’s a family tradition in some homes. But if you value the health of your lawn, you will think twice about building one. During the winter while the grass is protected by a layer of snow, it becomes brittle and can easily become damaged by foot traffic, and especially by the weight of a giant snowman. Your lawn may not recover from this damage and end up brown and dead in areas come spring time.
So if you want your lawn to safely survive the winter, and return lush and green come spring time, you will leave the snow on the lawn, while ensuring it suffers from as little foot traffic and damage as possible. You might even welcome the snow, as your very own personal winter yard protector.
