When the weather begins to transition to the warmer Spring setting, it is time to start thinking about your lawn rejuvenation responsibilities. You may be searching the internet for things like “Spring Lawn Care Schedule” or “Spring Landscaping Ideas”. This is the most important time to take care of your lawn, as it will determine the health of your grass and gardens for the whole Summer. So what are some the most popular lawn care procedures performed during Spring?
One of the most important things to do during Spring a complete cleanup of leftover leaves and accumulated debris from the lawn and garden beds. Falling leaves and snow cover create a layer that will prevent sun and water penetration during the important growing season. Also cleaning out garden beds will be an important step in preparing them for mulching, planting, and weeding.
Thatch is a layer or organic, and non-organic, material that builds up on the top layer of your soil. This layer can be beneficial when kept in check. As it builds up however, it can suffocate soil and grass roots. Removal of thatch can be done with a rake or powered machines. The removed material can be disposed off or mulched and reused as organic fertilizer. Dethatching should be done yearly in Spring before the first mowing occurs.
Pre-Emergent Weed Control
By far the most difficult thing to do in a lawn is to fight weeds in Summer once they have established. The time to prevent weed emergence is before seeds germinate. Most annual weeds, such as crabgrass, spread by last years seeds sitting in the soil. Application of granular, or liquid, pre-emergent herbicides at this time will provide you with more weed control abilities in Summer. It is very important to follow all label directions and to not over apply any herbicide, or damage can occur to your desirable grasses. This is an area where we highly recommend a licensed professional for this job.
