Essential lawn maintenance tasks for every spring
It’s never too early to start planning for the coming spring season. Successful maintenance of your lawn early on will ensure that it will be healthy and lush once the growing season starts. It’s important to start your lawn maintenance tasks as soon as the ground defrosts for best results. Here are some of the tasks you should be doing early this spring.
CLEAN UP THE MESS
Winter can leave your lawn and landscape in a messy state, so the first think you want to do is clean up this mess. Clear away all dead branches and dead leaves from your lawn and make a general assessment of your entire landscape. Check tree limbs for death or disease and make plans for pruning plants that may need it.
CONTROLLING AND PREVENTING CRABGRASS
It’s time to think about controlling and preventing crabgrass this growing seasons. You’ll want to apply a preemergent crabgrass control formula to your lawn before the soil temperature hits 55 degrees in order for it to be effective. And if you’re looking to seed your lawn, wait until eight weeks after application of the crabgrass control formula to plant the lawn seed.
