The days are getting longer, and the temperatures are slowly creeping up – it’s officially springtime! If you’re like many homeowners, your garden may be looking sad after a long winter. But don’t worry, we’ve got some tips to help get your garden ready for summer.
This blog post will show you simple steps to give your home garden some springtime love and make it look a lush-green for the summer!
Spring Time Care For Residential Lawn
After a quick lawn inspection, you can get a better idea of what needs to get done. Spring care is an essential part of any healthy-looking grass. Follow these steps to ensure your garden takes full advantage of the spring weather.
Raking prepares your lawn for new growth. It’ll remove the organic matter blocking your land from receiving full sunlight. Rake profoundly and thoroughly to break up any dirt lumps and dead turf-grass.
Soil compaction is the #1 cause of patchy & dry lawn. Lawn aeration creates openings in the lawn turf, losing the roots and opening the soil. Air, water & fertilizer can penetrate more quickly into the rooting system.
The fertilization depends on the type of lawn growing at home. We recommend using compost to help the soil’s composition and promote growth. Compost is safe to use in cool & warm-season grass during spring. However, if you need to bring out the big guns, get a fertilizer rich in nitrogen for a lush green appearance.
Read and follow the fertilizer instructions carefully not to burn the roots of your plants.
Mowing the Lawn
Before you get to the heavy-duty work, tune up your mower. Mow your lawn in the direction of a straight line, back & forth, until you achieve an even appearance. Mowing your lawn in early spring promotes healthy new blades and an improved appearance.
Give your lawn at least an inch of water per week. Spring irrigation varies by region; adjust accordingly. Avoid water evaporation on your property by watering before 10 AM.
