The Pros and Cons to a Snow Covered Lawn Cumming, GA

In Georgia, we certainly don’t see our landscape covered in white very often. Therefore, we don’t have to worry much with snow mold or other serious lawn conditions caused by weeks of deep snow. However, Georgia residents do typically get a fun “snow day” at least once or twice during the winter. While you may be strictly thinking about getting your milk and bread and building a fire, there are some good and bad effects on your lawn that you should consider. Here’s what you need to know:

Snow Can Help Your Lawn

A few inches of snow across your turf can actually be a good thing. Not only does it protect your grass from the harsh, dry winds, but it locks in moisture better than a sudden hard rain. As the snow melts, it allows your lawn winterizer application to soak deep into the soil. The nutrients can be evenly distributed into the root zones, a prime place for them to be once spring heat rolls around.

What To Avoid

There is one hard rule to follow considering the novelty of a Georgia snow. However, if possible, you should avoid running and trampling on your snow covered lawn as much as possible. Underneath that layer of white, there are grass crowns that are frozen and brittle. If they get crushed or broken, they may not recover properly, which could give you dead patches of grass in the spring. Go ahead and build your snowman but do it in a strategic location if you can.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
