Seasonal Maintenance Tips

April/May – Lawn Fertilizing

Spring maintenance can vary depending on the condition of your lawn and the effects of winter. Rake your lawn or rent a de-thatcher to remove excessive clippings, stems, leaves, and cuttings built up on the soil surface. Remove anything over 1/2 inch without pulling up the grass. Air, water and light need to reach the soil and the lawn may look rough initially. If the lawn is dry, you can lightly water for better results and begin in areas far away from the house or where traffic is minimal. This will provide help you perfect your method to avoid scraping the soil before hitting the areas prone to higher traffic or immediately next to the house. Some yards are prone to gravel or salt exposure from winter snow removal. A dry-vac can be used to vacuum your lawn in these areas. Lawn aeration is the remedy for areas where moss or compacted grass is found. Overseed the lawn with emphasis on traffic areas, bare spots, and areas damaged by pets. Apply fertilizer when overseeding and again 5 weeks later. Fall is the best time to overseed and aerate lawns but both can be employed during the Spring for correcting lawns problems. Apply lime to the soil with a spreader to correct high acidity. If you are unsure, avoid applying lime as this can throw the soil content is the opposite direction with high alkaline. Contact us for a free evaluation and estimate.
