It’s that beautiful time of the year when the sun is out, the grass is getting greener, and the flowers are making their annual debut. Spring is the ideal time to start fertilizing your lawn to ensure you have nice thick green grass come summer. A lawn care schedule will vary depending on where you live. Early spring is perfect for here in Michigan. Despite climate differences, yard maintenance can follow a similar schedule with adjustments for when spring starts. However, lawn care seems to start for most people in the early spring when the grass starts to look green again. Get a good start on yard maintenance this spring with a few simple lawn maintenance tips:
Prepare your lawnmower. It was a long winter. Start the season right by making sure your lawnmower is maintenance, sharpen your mower blades and make sure everything is working and ready to go.
Clean up the yard. Use your rake to remove leaves, dead grass, and any other debris in your yard. This process prepares your yard for necessary lawn treatment.
Begin mowing high. As you start mowing for the season, make sure to mow your lawn on the highest setting for your type of grass. Mowing high keeps your grass slightly longer and helps the grass develop stronger roots.
Fertilize your lawn. It is suggested the first time to fertilize is in late spring. Feeding your lawn strengthens the grass and helps to prevent future weed growth. HTA Companies offer fertilization plans that will take care of the lawn treatments for you and give you that curb appeal you are looking for.
Plant your flowers. Spring is also a great time to start planting your flowers and gardens for the year. Liven up your yard with a fresh landscape, colorful flowers, and a sharp lawn.
