Now that spring is here again, it is time to pay some attention to your lawn and get it ready for the summer growing season. The process isn’t difficult, but it must be done thoroughly and with attention to detail. Here are a few tips on preparing your lawn so that it stays green and healthy for the rest of the year:
- Fertilize Properly – As the winter season has depleted the ground of many of the nutrients that your lawn needs, fertilize now. Be sure to use the right fertilizer for your type of lawn.
- Use Weed Control – While rejuvenating your lawn with fertilizer is a good idea, it can also kick start the growth of weeds. Use a pre-emergent herbicide to kill broad leaf and grassy weeds before they get started.
- Control Other Pests – Similarly, the stresses of winter may have allowed disease and or insect pests to infiltrate your lawn. Now is the time to treat for these problems.
