Lawn Care Tips for the Spring Season
What to know to make the most of your lawn this spring
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 help you with these problems and rejuvenate your yard. Lawn Doctor’s Lawn Maintainer Care program will help protect your lawn from lawn pests and disease throughout the year.
Lawn Fertilization – Fertilization 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 also fertilize your lawn during the spring to ensure it stays lush and thick.
Spring fertilization helps your lawn replenish preserves that were depleted over the long, arduous winter. Your Lawn Doctor professional can offer you lawn tips as well as a full range of lawn care services for your lawn.
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. Check with your local Lawn Doctor lawn care professional for spring time tips on how much seeding your lawn may need, and when the seeding should be done.
Mowing – Springtime means it is time to start using the lawn mower again. Check out our lawn care tips to review proper techniques and safety considerations for mowing.
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 with your local Lawn Doctor 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 services help alleviate thatch and facilitates better growth.
Weed prevention – Spring is the best time of year to treat lawns with a pre-emergent. Spring lawn care services can help prevent crabgrass and other grassy weeds. Another way to prevent weeds is through bed weed maintenance. Your Lawn Doctor lawn care expert will know which weeds are a problem in your area, and how to treat them.
PH Balancing – Lawn Doctor can professionally test your soil to help you determine which compounds your lawn might require to help your yard flourish. Having the correct pH level for your lawn can help alleviate many lawn care issues in the long run.
Soil Enrichment – Soil Enrichment stimulates a stronger and healthier root system, while improving the structure of your lawn’s soil. Soil enrichment improves root penetration and soil water retention, making regular watering more effective. Soil enrichment can also reduce damaging salts from the root zone and improve soil aeration. It also reduces the accumulation of thatch, enhancing your lawn’s natural resistance to pests and diseases.
