When winter comes to an end and spring is in the air, you’ll look out at your lawn and realize there’s a lot of work to be done. Don’t worry! The video above will give you all the tips you need to get your lawn care going in the right direction.
First, make sure all of your tools are cleaned, sharpened, and ready to go. Sharpen your mower blades and clean off the mower if there’s residual grass and dirt on it from the year before.
The next step is to get a soil test done before you apply any chemicals to your lawn. You want to get an idea of the baseline health of the soil so you know what you can and can’t use later on.
To ensure your grass grows and avoid dirt patches, use pre-emergent and grass seeds while the ground is still fairly cool. This will jumpstart the lawn’s growth, and set it up to be full and luscious by the time the warm weather starts to come in.
Once the weather is warm and the grass has grown a bit, you can break out your mower and weed-whacker for the lawn’s first manicure. Giving the lawn a bit of time to grow out longer will build up its strength and resiliency to mowing. This will help your lawn last the entirety of spring and summer.
