Spring Lawn Care | Spring Lawn Care Tips for the Spring Season
In the spring, everything begins to grow rapidly after the dormant period of winter. Consider these spring lawn care tips to help bring your yard back to life:
As grass comes out of dormancy from the long winter, it should be checked for lawn diseases, such as dead spots and insects like grubs. Healthy lawns that receive proper year-round lawn care, yard care and lawn treatments offered by Lawn Doctor's Lawn Maintainer Care programs - tend to be more resistant to disease and pests all year long.
Spring lawn care begins with lawn fertilizing. Proper fertilization of your lawn in the spring is vital because this feeding replenishes the reserves used during the dormant winter period.
As the mowing season begins, be sure to review our lawn care tips for advice on proper lawn mowing techniques and safety procedures.
Allowing grass clippings to remain on the lawn after mowing is actually beneficial. This process is known as grass-cycling. After a long winter, check the thatch level to see if the lawn would benefit from dethatching and aeration.
Spring lawn care can help prevent grassy weeds like crabgrass and the spring season is also a great time to treat lawns with pre-emergents. Spring lawn care services such as proper maintenance of landscaping beds can also prevent weeds.
Do you know the pH level of your soil? Having your soil professionally tested by Lawn Doctor can help you determine what compounds might need to be added to create the best growing environment for turf and trees.
