Spring is just around the corner for the dedicated home owners who want to keep their lawn in spick and span condition. While winter is still with us, you have to start planning and preparing so that your lawn grows healthy and strong.
Here are a few things you can do right now to prepare your lawn for spring:
- Tune Up Your Lawn Mower
Over the winter, you left the lawn mower in the shed and did not give it the second look, because you did not need it. Now it’s time to take it out, check the fuel, sharpen the blades or buy a new set if the old ones are too worn out.
- Pull Out the Weeds
Weeds are very sturdy and have a tendency to spread out quickly if left unchecked. Take the time to walk over your lawn and pull out every weed you encounter. If there are too many, consider your herbicide options.
- Aerate the Soil
Aerated soil means healthier, well nourished grass. DIY aeration is quite simple and the tools you need are affordable and you can find them at any home and garden store.
- Apply a Light Fertilizer
This is the period when the grass needs all the help you can give it to grow strong, green and lush. A little fertilizer will work wonders for your lawn, http://therichlawncompany.com/products/fertilizers/.
- Water the Lawn
Do not rely solely on Mother Nature to send rain. Before spring comes in full force it’s time to inspect your sprinkler system and start using it.
