Start Now: A Guide To Spring Lawn Care

Spring is a critical time of year for lawn care. With the winter months behind us and the warmer weather ahead, it's time to start thinking about getting your lawn in tip-top shape. Here are some essential spring lawn care tips to help you get started:

  1. Rake up debris: Remove any leaves, twigs, or other debris that may have accumulated on your lawn over the winter. This will allow sunlight and air to reach the grass and promote healthy growth.

  2. Aerate: Aerating your lawn can help to loosen compacted soil and allow nutrients and water to penetrate deeper into the roots. You can rent a lawn aerator or hire a professional to do it for you.

  3. Fertilize: Fertilizing your lawn in the spring can help to promote healthy growth and give your grass the nutrients it needs to thrive. Choose a fertilizer that is appropriate for your grass type and follow the instructions carefully.

  4. Seed bare spots: If you have bare spots in your lawn, now is the time to seed them. Make sure to choose a seed that is appropriate for your grass type and follow the instructions carefully.

  5. Water: As the weather warms up, you'll need to start watering your lawn more regularly. Make sure to water deeply and infrequently, rather than shallowly and frequently, to encourage deep root growth.

  6. Mow: As your grass begins to grow, it's time to start mowing. Set your mower blade to the appropriate height for your grass type and make sure to mow frequently enough that you're never removing more than one-third of the blade at a time.

  7. Weed control: Spring is also a good time to start controlling weeds. You can use a pre-emergent herbicide to prevent weeds from germinating or a post-emergent herbicide to kill weeds that have already sprouted.

By following these tips, you can help your lawn to thrive throughout the spring and upcoming summer months. Remember to be patient and consistent in your lawn care efforts, and you'll be rewarded with a lush, healthy lawn in no time! Contact us with any questions.
