Your Frosted Lawn Cumming, GA
landscaped front yard

As the temperatures dip below freezing, you may wake up to a yard covered in frost. While the beautiful sight of frosted grass is perfectly safe to look at, you need to avoid the fun of hearing the crunch of it by walking across your frosted lawn. When your yard is frosted, the blades of grass are literally frozen. This frost isn’t necessarily harmful to the grass, as it typically melts fast as the sun shines down throughout the day. However, the danger to your lawn is when these frozen grass blades get broken. This happens when your kids or your mailman trample across your crunchy morning turf. It can also wreak havoc on your landscape if the mower gets started too soon, before the frost has dissipated.

How does frost occur? Frost occurs on cold, clear nights when atmospheric conditions cause the grass to become colder than the air. Frost can cover your entire landscape or be lightly scattered in the shaded patches of your lawn. When the water within the grass expands and freezes, the plant itself becomes frozen. Therefore, if you step on frozen grass, the cells burst within the plant and the blade is damaged.

If you’ve already walked across your frosted lawn, don’t panic. The damage is typically not permanent. It usually doesn’t kill the lawn, but the lawn’s growth will be stunted until the temperatures warm up in the spring. At Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we are careful to protect frosted lawns while maintaining your winter landscape. If you have further questions about winter lawn damage or if you would like to hear how we can repair your landscape in the spring, please give us a call.

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!!
