Five Essential Spring Lawn Care Tips
March 15, 2018
Your yard makes a first impression. Does yours make a great, lively one, or is it lifeless and spotty? Here are spring lawn care tips that will set your lawn up for an impressionable green spring, summer, and fall.
1. Overseed and Aerate ASAP
One of the most important spring lawn care tips is to start as soon as possible. And your first step should be aerating and overseeding. While it’s best to do these things in the fall, it’s not too late for your lawn to benefit. The process of aerating provides the perfect pocket for the seeds and also leaves space for air, which is essential for the health of the roots.
2. Water Thoroughly
Grass roots are sensitive. If they don’t get the water they need, they will die off quickly. For green grass, long soakings once or twice a week is more valuable than surface-level watering daily.
3. Use Weed Control
Your flowers and grass love all the sunshine and water, but so do the weeds, so your luscious green grass may become littered with yellow dandelions. Make sure a weed control product is on your shopping list.
A high-quality fertilizer will give your lawn the greener appearance you desire. If you are looking to fertilize your own lawn look for a fertilizer that is rich in nitrogen.
5. Hire a Professional
A lot goes into making your lawn as green as luscious as you’d like it to be. That’s why Green Lawn Fertilizing offers a Green Lawn Program that will green up your lawn and get rid of pesky weeds.
