January. In January, as throughout the winter, care must be taken, that would be on the lawn, no one went, otherwise the spring you will see the damage in the appropriate places. It is also necessary to provide sufficient air exchange between the roots of turf grass and the environment, to do this, break the crust of ice on the lawn (a rake or other garden tool). Another important winter event on the lawn – to protect the snow layer from the blowing wind, because. lying on the lawn, the snow protects the grass from frost.

June. Summer is coming, and lawn care is becoming more responsible. Because in summer the sun's rays begin to bake, often necessary to water the lawn, in the evening, but the main thing is not to overdo it – a lot of water promotes rot the lawn. Also added this event on lawn care, like mowing the lawn. The height of the grass in the lawn needs to be at least 4 cm. There is another problem – weeds, they remove chemical (herbicides) and mechanical (manually) ways.
July. The sun is becoming more, lawn grass must be hidden in the layer of mulch, which is created by leaving grass clippings on the lawn. Cutting width of the lawn must be within 6-7 cm, which will allow the grass to hide from the sun. Do not forget to carry out lawn aeration, weed control and careful watering.
August. All, as in July, pour, cut, mulching, ongoing aeration of the soil.

Also in October we carry out aeration of the soil and, if desired, at the end of the month – the last mowing the lawn (it can also be carried out in early November). If the lawn area has no drainage system water drainage, mount it, otherwise, with the arrival of spring will be a lot of trouble.
November. No wonder the Ukrainian language, November is "Listopad". This month is observed defoliation, which completely covers the grass. Fallen leaves must be removed from the lawn, that would not have formed felt, which violates the air plants. If in October you have not made the last cut the lawn, do it in early November, but not too late. Just before winter it is necessary to carry out aeration of the soil.
December. So, the last month of the calendar of lawn care. In December there is the first snowfall, therefore, protect lawn grass from blowing her snow drift (install shields) well, if tough ice – smash it with a rake.
