2012 is already a week old, and spring will be here before we know it. But what happened to our winter? It's far from over, and this warm weather makes be think that the law of averages will catch up with us, and we'll be sitting under snow all February. Let's hope not though. We don't need a repeat of last February. We're ready though at LawnAmerica if if does snow. Our snow plows have been ready to go in our warehouse for a month, with a truckload of ice melt on the shelves also. When the snow comes, we're ready to go with snow and ice control in Tulsa! But if not, we'll be ready for lawncare also.
The snow has been absent, but so has the rain for the past month or so. 2011 overall was a tough one with the summer drought, so many lawns and landscapes in the Tulsa area entered this winter under stress. If we do have a harsh second half of the winter, that could put even more stress on some plants.
Soil moisture is still important during the winter on lawns. So if the dry weather continues, I'd recommend irrigating your lawns and landscape soon. I've kicked my sprinkler system on twice over the past few weeks, because we've not had significant rainfall. The root system of turf and plants is still somewhat active during the winter, so don't let the soil dry out completely. Also, a moist soil holds heat better than one without any soil moisture. So winterkill of bermudagrass can be lessened when the soil is moist when the temperatures drop to an extreme.
This is Oklahoma, so we all know that the weather can change quickly here, with extremes on every end. We've seen that more often it seems over the last few years especially. So I would not be surprised if our 2012 winter suddenly turns into a monster.
