Spring is in the Air! The ABC's of Spring Lawn MaintenanceSpring is a time for growth and rebirth. Plants come out of their winter stasis and start to show new signs of life. But the bitter months of cold weather can sometimes damage plants and lawns. It can be difficult to judge the health of your lawn after winter. If you see that your grass is having problems recovering and thriving in the spring, here are a few things you can do to set your lawn up for another healthy year.

A. Cut The Dead Weight

Making sure your lawn gets mowed regularly is the best way to make room for new, healthy growth. Mowing grass might seem like a superficial chore, but it can be the easiest way to keep your grass healthy.

B. Fertilize Early

If you’re concerned that your grass has been hit hard by frost or low temperatures, fertilize in early spring. This might be enough to pull your lawn through the damage and
set soil levels back to normal.

C. Reseed In Spring

If the damage to your lawn is obvious, investing in new seed or sod in spring can revitalize a damaged yard. Accompany this process with plenty of soil enhancement to give the new plants their best chance.
