Wintertime is rest time for the lawn – right? Can I walk on my lawn while it is covered with snow?

The answer

Basically, you are right: Winter time is rest time for your lawn. If you walk on the snow and ice covered lawn you might recognise your footprints as yellow spots later on when the snow has melted away. You can take care of these spots in spring (aeration, sowing, transplanting) but that will require some effort. So better not walk or play on your snow-covered lawn.
