I was walking the dog down on my driveway, noting how the spots he marks right along the edge are deep green.

I have known for years that snow does gather nitrogen from the atmosphere, and while modest it is been the main source of food for my lawn.

What was surprising to me was I noticed one large area of the lawn was really darker green than all the others.

Was it because it was i the shade? Nope. Different soil or seed? Nope.

I believe the explanation is that Dark Green area is where I blow an enormous amount of snow every winter. Ans since I did not do a Spring Fertilizer treatment it is really noticeable.

Have to get a load of SNOW of Home Depot :-)

I understand it also protects it from the really cold freezes.


Snow here is a holiday...and we have many from snow country who retire here. They are often shocked to see brown grass in the winter here. Oh that is ugly. Seems they did not realize their northern grass had also turned brown but with a white blanket on it.

When they learn they have rye grass over seeded giving them lush green lawn year round they are happy till they learn it must be cut year round, ....
