Products to Prep the Yard for Winter

The end of fall is the ideal time for homeowners to prep their home’s exterior and yard for the winter. The cooler temperatures and added moisture are conducive for planting grass to fill in bare spots in the yard or improve the overall grass coverage. Educate your customers on the type of grass seeds that work best in your climate and growing area, and carry several different types. It’s also helpful to carry grass maintenance products like Scotts® EZ Seed® Patch & Repair Tall Fescue Lawns.

Grass lawns benefit from regular aeration, which homeowners can accomplish with a hand aerator, such as the Yard Butler Manual Lawn Coring Aerator. Miles Kimball also makes Lawn Aerator Sandals

Remind customers to unhook all of their outside hose reels from the faucets and store their hoses indoors, such as the Suncast Hosemobile® Hose Cart

Keep a stock of recyclable yard bags and garbage bags for customers to grab for yard cleanup as they stock up on other winterization supplies.
