Tackling spring lawn care provides a just-right dose of fresh air, sunshine, and exercise and sets your lawn on its way to season-long glory. Spring lawn chores aren’t difficult, but they do play an essential role in getting your grass on the right track for a healthy, productive growing season.
Here are the top spring lawn care tips:
Lawn Disease – Did your lawn develop dead patches during the winter? Have pests such as grubs made their home in your yard? Proper spring lawn care can deal with these problems and help rejuvenate your yard. Basic lawn maintenance can help protect your lawn from pests and disease throughout the year.
Lawn Fertilization – Fertilizing is one of the most important spring lawn care tips. You may have fertilized your lawn in the fall, but it is also important to do so during the spring in order to help your lawn grow lush and thick. Spring fertilization helps your lawn replenish preserves that were depleted over the long, arduous winter.
Overseeding – If you have any bare patches on your lawn, you may need to do what is known as “overseeding” your lawn. This will help grow new patches where the lawn died during the winter.
Mowing – Springtime means it is time to start using the lawn mower again.
Grass-cycling – This process involves leaving grass clippings on the lawn when mowing is finished, which can recycle grass elements back into the lawn.
Thatch level – Check to see if aeration and dethatching would help lawn maintenance. Lawn aeration is the process that is used to treat thatch buildup. When soil becomes compacted or thatch builds up it restricts your grass’ access to much needed nutrients. Lawn aeration help alleviate this issue and facilitates better growth.
Weed prevention – Springtime is appropriate for treating lawns with pre-emergents. Spring lawn care can help to prevent crabgrass and other grassy weeds. Another way to prevent weeds is through landscaping beds maintenance.
pH Level of Soil – Professionally test your soil to help you figure out which compounds you might help your yard flourish. Having the correct pH level for your yard can help save you many problems in the long run.
Let your yard shine!
