As winter bears down upon us, many wonder what their lawns will look like when Spring finally arrives. My own yard could use some TLC and that’s one of the biggest reasons we aren’t doing much decorating this year. We’ve had a problem with moles burrowing through our yard and it’s not only leaving long and winding trails of soft spots, but also killing off the grass. So this fall, I went out and bought a non-lethal application to use on the lawn to deter those little rascals. A few weeks later, we noticed there were no new burrow trails through the yard. Talk about happy! Of course, with the temperature drop, they may have just burrowed further underground. Regardless, we mowed the law and mulched the leaves. I spread the mulched leaves onto my garden plot and turned them into the top soil pretty well so that they can break down over the winter and enrich the soil.
