Caring for Your Lawn after Frost Damage
Metro Orlando FL | Kissimmee - Sanford - Leesburg
Even in Florida, lawns can experience frost damage. While frost itself isn’t necessarily damaging to grass, stepping on frozen grass can lead to your lawn dying off. When somewhat frozen grass blades are walked on, the fragile blades may break. When damage does occur, there’s not much to do besides wait for the grass to regenerate and fill back in as temperatures rise.
What do I do if my lawn has frost damage?
If we indicated that your lawn has frost damage, there are some things you should know. Frost damage is that brown, “burnt” appearance that starts at the top of the leaf blade, and moves its way downward. This is the reason for the “burnt” condition that is present in the overall appearance of your lawn. Frost damage cannot be corrected. It simply must grow out and recover. We help this process along with our focus on strong root development and micro-nutrients to help green the lawn up. This will help the lawn recover quicker once the temperatures increase and your grass begins to grow again.

How do I treat my lawn for frost damage?
Once the weather warms up, mow your lawn, which will cut off all the old dead leaf blades and encourage new, green growth to emerge. Your neighbor’s lawn may not have experienced the same type of damage as you. Different factors that affect turf are wind, the last time the lawn was irrigated, canopy coverage from trees, and especially the variety of St. Augustine turf you may have. However, you can feel confident that your lawn will grow out of this.
In the meantime, be careful! Too much watering can create the conditions that are necessary for more damage to occur, and set the recovery process back even further.Back to Lawn Service
