It seems the weather is finally taking a turn for the better, which means Sioux City residents can safely start thinking about winter lawn care and prepping for the warmer months ahead. Lots of Elite Self Storage clients, both homeowners, and businesses, use our state-of-the-art facility for seasonal storage of lawn equipment, so we’d like to share some of our top winter storage tips to get you in the spirit. 

How to Prep 

Lawn Equipment Storage

During the winter months, it’s important to take preventive care of your lawnmower before resuming a regular mowing schedule come spring. This improves the mower’s lifespan and performance and also saves them time and money–time spent trying to mow your lawn with a subpar mower, and money spent on fixing your mower’s damaged parts. You may need to sharpen the mower blades so that they cut the grass neatly instead of “whacking” it. Also important is to give your lawnmower an oil change after every 50 hours of run-time. Taking care of your mower now means less time in the hot sun come July. 


Coming out of a long, wet winter, standing water can be a huge problem for home lawns. Your grass won’t be able to live for long underwater and eventually damage the root structure. Moreover, too much standing water can damage a home’s foundation. You can alleviate the problem by creating a slope, leveling your lawn, or implementing a drainage system such as a ditch, catch basin, or drain.
