Summer is right around the corner and it’s important that you take the time now to get your yard ready. By taking these steps in the spring, you will have a much nicer yard come summer. Having that beautiful yard full of lush green grass is possible and doesn’t require a whole ton of work if you start early.
Weeds can be a huge hassle and make a yard look neglected. We recommend taking care of weeds as soon as you see them. Early spring, you may see a few weeds pop up here and there. We recommend weeding early so they don’t have a chance to spread throughout the entire yard. Lay new sod in areas that don’t have grass growing so weeds don’t claim that spot as their own. Lastly, make sure you are mowing frequently to keep weeds down.
Before you start doing anything else with your yard, we recommend reseeding with a high quality seed. This will help the grass grow thicker and fill in any spots where the grass may not be growing. Look through all the grass options and make sure you find one that is most appropriate for your area. Different grasses are harder to keep than others. Just make sure you water frequently at first.
Consider a Sprinkler System
A sprinkler system can be expensive, but can save you lots of time and ruined grass in the end. Many people forget to move the hose and result in dead spots on the yard from the hose laying out too long. Many times without a sprinkler it is easy to forget to move or remove the hose resulting in over-watering. Installing a sprinkler system will guarantee that the entire yard gets watered and that it gets watered the correct amount. Most sprinkler systems come with timers on them.
Love your Lawnmower
Your lawnmower requires a little TLC at the beginning of each year. We recommend routine maintenance. Replace your mowers oil and gas and make sure you are using the recommended types. Replace your spark plugs and air filters this time of year as well. Last, but not least, check your blades. Make sure the blades are sharp so they are cutting through the grass with ease. Frequent maintenance and cleaning of your mower will result in a long-lasting mower that leaves behind stunning grass!
We hope these tips will help you with your lawn this year! We’d love to see some pics!
