Early spring is upon us, which means it is time to start thinking about your lawn. Once the warmer weather is here to stay, it is vital that your property is prepared for a strong growing season.
Lush Lawn is here to help with some important tips for spring lawn care:
Raking your lawn helps reduce the thatch that has built up during the winter. Thatch is created by dying or dead grass which covers a fresh layer of healthy grass. Removing this thatch will allow fresh nutrients in, which will ensure that your lawns will be free from restraint. It is important that you do not rake too deeply, however, as it is possible to cause damage to the new growth underneath.
Early spring is the perfect time for a scheduled aeration. By allowing more air flow into your soil, aeration provides a channel for vital nutrients to reach deep down to the roots of your grass. Healthier grass means greener grass.
Testing pH balance is one of Lush Lawn’s most important spring lawn care tip. Testing the pH balance of your soil will determine whether the proper treatment and fertilizers are being applied. Lush Lawn uses cutting edge soil tests that are sent to third-party laboratories for processing. You can count on the results being as accurate as possible. Once the results are in, our lawn care experts can give you a custom soil treatment plan that will bring balance back to your lawn.
Keeping a schedule for clearing weeds and fertilizing will go a long way in maintaining a beautiful lawn. Weeds are ugly, but they also threaten the health of your grass. Weeds suck up any nutrients around them leaving your grass to starve. Effectively combating invasive weeds will protect your turf from extensive damage. For this reason, Lush Lawn recommends homeowners invest in a lawn care treatment program that protects from invasive weed pests and fertilizing for maximum health.
As a final word of advice, Lush Lawn recommends that homeowners schedule when their lawns are being watered. Southeast Michigan has experienced several drought summers over the past few years. Consistent watering can help alleviate the stress that hot, dry summers can incur on your lawn. To increase the effectiveness of watering, Lush Lawn offers their specialized Water Maximizer treatment that extends and retains moisture even on the hottest and driest summer days.
With spring around the corner, now is the best time to start planning for a new growing season. Spring lawn care is vital, as it sets the precedent for the health of your grass in the following seasons. Lush Lawn offers several comprehensive lawn care programs that optimize the care of your grass in every way.
