Embrace the Clean Slate

Before diving into planting and lawn care, a thorough spring clean-up is essential. Remove any debris, leaves, and dead plants that have accumulated over the winter months. This not only tidies up your space but also allows your lawn and gardens to breathe and soak up all the sunlight and nutrients they’ve been missing.

Soil and Mulch Magic

Healthy soil is the foundation of any successful yard landscaping. Consider having your soil tested and then enrich it with the appropriate amendments. Applying a fresh layer of mulch not only gives your beds a neat appearance but also helps retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

Nurture and Protect Against Weeds

Revitalizing your lawn in early spring calls for a strategic blend of nourishment and protection. By applying a mix of fertilizer alongside pre-emergent herbicide, you not only encourage robust grass growth but also prevent crabgrass and eliminate weeds from taking hold. For an eco-conscious choice, corn gluten meal offers a fantastic organic alternative, acting both as a natural weed suppressant and a slow-release nitrogen source for your grass. Timing these applications correctly is crucial for optimal results.


Lawn Love

Lawn care might seem complicated, but a lush lawn is within reach with the right approach. Regular mowing every five days for the first six weeks of spring can help promote thicker and fuller grass. Pair that with regular watering, and you have the perfect recipe for an amazing lawn. Don’t forget to aerate your lawn as well to ensure oxygen, water, and nutrients reach the root zone.
