When you think about spring, one thing that comes to mind is all the wonderful things that start happening in your garden. Arguably the most magical season for all kinds of nature, spring is a time when you should take great care of your lawn to enjoy it at its most beautiful as the year continues. Those who are keen gardeners will know just how important it is to get the treatment right at this time of the year so you can enjoy the rewards into the summer and fall. To help you with this, here are some expert tips for spring lawn care, recommended by professional landscapers in Holliston MA.
● Deep Raking
It is important that you rake deeply as your lawn starts to ‘wake up’ in the spring after a long hard winter. You should aim to remove the older blades of grass and all of the debris that has fallen in between the roots and the soil. This layer can work to prevent water and sunshine from being able to penetrate the lawn enabling it to grow healthily, so it is important that it is removed along with things like fallen and leftover leaves.
● Disease And Weed Prevention
Spring is the perfect time to start protecting your lawn against weeds and all types of disease. Not only will doing this help it to flourish in the present, but it will also make it much easier to maintain as the year goes on. We recommended using some of the many available natural weed killers and pesticides, because some of the harsher chemicals in non-organic brands can hurt birds, bees and various other pollinators.
If your lawn is looking a little bit patchy from the effects of the winter weather, the spring is a perfect time to go through the re-seeing process. It is important to make sure that you have a soil sample from your lawn before choosing which seeds to use, because not all types of soil work well with all types of seeds. You can take your sample to your local cooperative extension service office for a good quality test that will show you what you need to get.
The secret to a great lawn is great fertilizer! You need to make sure that you don’t over fertilize, however, as that can lead to the burning of your grass which obviously isn’t what you are looking for in the spring! Once again, a soil test can help you to determine which fertilizer would be best for your lawn.
