Do you know how to bring out the best in your lawn this Summer?
Well, we’d like to help you. In this blog post, we’re going to identify a general timeline of Spring lawn maintenance you should be doing, educating you on the areas you should be focusing on, and providing you with DIY insights that will have your neighbors lawn looking, well, horrible.
While the snow melts.
While the snow is melting on your lawn, it’s important to remember a couple things. First, Try and keep your lawn lean of debris such as sprinklers, hoses, and the like, as they can suppress the grass leaving marks in certain areas. Also, be intentional about where you walk, and how often you walk there. In the early Spring months, it’s easy to leave unwanted footprints and paths in your yard.
Once the snow is gone.
Once the snow is gone, and if you didn’t in the Fall, we recommend that you get to work preparing your lawn. A few things we recommend that you do include removing any snow mold with a rake, reseeding those areas, aerating the entire lawn, and then overseeding. This helps clean up your lawn’s dead spot while also breaking up compacted soil, allowing oxygen and nutrients to reach your lawn’s roots more effectively.
When things start to bud.
As your lawn begins to grow, it’s important to begin the maintenance process early. Specifically, make sure that you are mowing on a regular basis (we recommend that you start once your grass reaches 2.5 – 3.5 inches tall. Also, be sure that your lawn is getting enough water. Early in the Spring, this may not be a problem, but a good reminder is that your lawn requires about 1 inch of water every week in the summer. Finally, if you have a problem with weeds, it’s time to apply pre-emergent herbicides now.
