Contrary to what you might expect, February can, and usually is, the coldest month of the year. Especially right here in Colorado where constant and heavy bouts of wind tend to make February a fairly miserable experience. Not only is this true for us as human beings, but plants, and especially lawn grasses, all struggle to survive this last month of winter. Though there is not a whole lot you can do for your lawn at this point there is something you can do to prevent future damage to it. As you know, you should always remember to keep off your lawn while it’s frozen however, never is this truer than in the month of February where a hard freeze can quickly turn to a soggy mess. Any damage you cause to your lawn by even accidentally driving on it can multiply during this time of the year as the change in ground temperature will serve to amplify the damage to the lawn.
