Spring Lawn Tips

1. Aerate – This breaks up compacted soil, reduces thatch, and creates thousands of holes that penetrate into the root zone of your lawn to deliver water and food (fertilizer) directly to the roots where your grass needs it.
2. Fertilize – Fertilize every 2 months and start with a spring application in March or April.  Fertilizer will replace the nutrients that are vital to a healthy lawn.  These nutrients are not readily available in our native soils, so regular fertilizer applications are essential to keep your lawn thick and green.  By the way if you keep your lawn thick and healthy you will have less weeds in your lawn, because the weeds cannot compete with thick grass.
3. Water properly– Proper watering is the single most important maintenance practice for your lawn.  Without proper watering throughout the entire year, none of the other maintenance services you spend money on will work.  Watering needs change throughout the entire year so you will need to adjust your watering schedule for those needs.  These watering adjustments may need to be done weekly to keep the correct amount of moisture in your soil at any given time of year.  At the very least, you should adjust your watering schedule monthly.  Winter watering is also very beneficial if we are having a dry winter.  We offer sprinkler consulting starting at just $30.  We can show you how to monitor and schedule your sprinklers so that you are not watering too much or too little.
4.  Other good options – If you have a thin lawn, you will want to improve your maintenance practices on tips 1-3, and then you may want to add some more beneficial services like over seeding to fill in some of the thin areas or EZ Wet wetting agent to get more out of the water and fertilizer you are putting down.
5. Mow low – Instead of power raking or dethatching which we do not reccomend, mow your lawn low in mid to late March.  This will get rid of all of the dead grass on top and expose the green grass underneath that is starting to grow.  Don’t power rake!  Power raking adds un-needed stress to your lawn.
