The Most Important Elements of Effective Spring Lawn Maintenance
With summer right around the corner, spring is the perfect time to invest in your lawn. Making an extra effort now will help create a stunning yard for block party fun and family cookouts. The secret is in smart spring lawn maintenance.

Don’t Underestimate The Power Of Dirt

Doing some general soil preparation will go a long way toward giving your grass a better chance to grow back healthy and vibrant. The nutrients in your soil will feed the grass. Taking care of your soil means spreading fertilizer and aerating compacted soil for prime oxygenation.

Don’t Turn Your Back On Weeds For A Minute

Preventative herbicide treatments don’t let weeds get the upper hand. Weeds can strangle new growth and make it impossible for healthy roots to take hold. Invest in some protection for your growing lawn.

Don’t Forget The Basics

Set up a watering schedule that works with the weather and temperatures in your area. Be sure to stick to the times you set but don’t make the mistake of overwatering. New lawn growth can be just as easily drowned as it can be dehydrated.
