With spring just around the corner, many homeowners are starting to think about spending more time outdoors. After a long, brutal winter, your yard may be looking a little worse for wear. Fortunately, Moyer Indoor | Outdoor has some tips and tricks for turning your lawn around! Discover the best type of care to give your lawn during the springtime so that it looks lush and inviting come summer.
What specific kind of lawn care should be done in the spring?
- Conduct Weed Control. Pre-emergent weed control is a process designed to stop weeds from actively growing. This treatment can prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from popping up during the late spring and summer.
- Fertilize Everything. Spring is one of the best times to fertilize your lawn. There are a variety of fertilizers on the market, each offering a different release rate ranging from slow to fast. In the spring, you want to use a fast release fertilizer. Because the weather is cooler and moister, your lawn will absorb the nutrients from the fertilizer more quickly. Throughout the summer, you’ll want to use a slow-release fertilizer to keep your lawn healthier, longer. You’ll also want to provide your trees and shrubs with a fertility treatment during the spring. It’s best to inject fertilizer directly into the root systems of your plants to promote growth and vibrant color throughout the summer.
- Winter Injury Repair. Throughout the winter, your lawn, plants, and shrubs have probably suffered some damage. They may appear brown, damaged, or desiccated. If you notice any type of damage, fertilizing can help trees and shrubs recover more quickly. Remove any dead, dry, or dying portions of your trees and shrubs, then fertilize for a quick recovery and lush growth.
