Law lovers and home owners, spring is a great time to get outside, enjoy the outdoors, and revitalize your lawn. After a long hard winter, your lawn may desires all the help it can get.
Tip # 1: Try to loosen up the soil. After a long hard winter, grass roots can be under a lot of stress. Law aeration can be done using a mechanical aeration or a liquid lawn aerator. This reduces stress and helps the lawn to spring back. Liquid aeration opens up a path to the roots system for more easy absorption of water, air, and nutrients. One proven liquid loosens clays and hard soils naturally and effectively. It is made with a grade A soil penetrate, which penetrates the soil. It also has a helpful acid called humic acid which helps to break down harmful pesticide and herbicides in the soil.
Tip # 2: After using a mechanical or liquid aerator, the next thing to do is over-seed any bare spots you have in the lawn. For best results, use a thin layer of peat moss and keep the seed and seedling moist for the first 4 weeks. Top quality seeds are usually worth the extra extra bucks because these are more Drought resistant, traffic resistant and they look nicer.
Tip # 3: Lawn Thatching helps to rid of unwanted grasses, moss and dead lawn material in the grass. This can be done with a power rake or a hand rake. Once unwanted lawn thatch is removed the lawn can flourish and do much better.
Tip # 4: Fertilization. In early spring, we recommend a fertilizer high is nitrogen, but with little or no phosphorous. A fertilizer contain urea or other types of long lasting nitrogen may be ideal. Healthily lawns are more resistant to weeds, droughts, and pests. Long lasting fertilizer are less likely to burn your lawn. Fertilization and over seeding are a great compliment to mechanical / liquid aeration and that.
