Spring hasn’t sprung just yet, but it will be here before we know it. It may seem early, but there are simple lawn care practices you could start doing now for warm days ahead. Making sure to follow these steps now, will make it much easier on your lawn once Spring is in full bloom.
Pick up Those Sticks: Lawn care for spring
Picking up any sticks that may have fallen through the winter time, breaking up any leaves from the past fall and looking around for any dead spots that may have occurred during the winter.
When looking for those areas in your lawn, look for a spot that is missing something. They’ll just be bare, there won’t be any grass there, there won’t be any kind of vegetation whatsoever.
- The best thing that you can do is start applying grass seed. You don’t want to do too large of an area, but you can do light, smaller areas all around your yard and just seed them.
- If it stays consistently warm, that’s when to start fixing the lawn. But they say that it isn’t recommended to plant those flowers until derby weekend.
- Wait until you see a pattern in the nighttime temperatures starting to warm up, and also the day time temperatures. You want them to roughly start staying in like the 40’s and 50’s.
Other things to do while waiting for the warm breeze?
- Sharpening their lawnmower blades, changing the oil in their lawn mower. You want a sharp blade to ensure a good, clean cut lawn. And then you also want to apply a light round of fertilizer, this time of year.
So, if you make sure to do this simple lawn maintenance, once spring finally approaches, caring for your lawn will be much easier. Once you see the consistent pattern of warm days, that is when you contact a lawn care professional to make your lawn look good as new!
