How To Recover Your Lawn And Landscaping From Frost Damage

We all know that the temperatures of our winter days can fluctuate greatly. One of the biggest concerns during the winter when dealing with the lawn and landscaping is frost.

Helpful Tips Prior To Leveling Your Lawn

Do you often find standing water on your lawn after it rains or after your sprinklers have been on? If so, there is a good chance that your lawn is not level. There are many factors that can contribute to an uneven lawn. For instance, animals can dig holes that will fill up with water. Regular wear and tear in your yard can also lead to an uneven lawn. This is extremely likely if you have children who are constantly playing sports and running through your yard. It is extremely easy for children and pets to create ruts and holes in your lawn. If your property is prone to flooding, it can cause the soil to erode, leading to drainage problems.
