Lawn Care Tips When Spring is Here

Spring is one of the best seasons in which you have warm sunshine and cool breeze as well as the hum of mowers is there in the atmosphere. People purchase herbicides, best quality seeds, landmowers, fertilizers, and string trimmers as well as other advanced devices to have a perfect, lush green lawn that is going to feel chill and fresh under their toes in the spring.

If you want to have your lawn in perfect conditions all year long then spring is the potential season in which you need to take the start. Fall, as well as winters, are considered to modify the soil compaction and composition along with pH. They also offer favorable conditions for weeds as well as other plant diseases. Therefore, right cleaning, mowing, and fertilizing are essential in the season of spring. We have brought some of the paramount and most practical maneuvers and strategies that should be carried out in the spring for the perfect maintenance of your yard.

    Repair and Clean the Lawn

One of the frequent problems is the uneven ground. You need to fill in the low areas and cut down the areas that are elevated. Low areas are accountable for poor water drainage and the elevated areas are responsible for getting scalped by the lawnmowers. In spring, another job you need to accomplish for the good maintenance of your yard is the light raking as the soil by this time would be dried out very much. However, it is essential to address all (or any) problematic areas immediately as they are potential for stressing your soil as well as turning that more susceptible towards the disorders and weed invasions. You are required to remove the thatch covering the surface of your soil. This is the carpet of upper roots and leaves that prevents sunlight, water, and other nutrients to reach out the underground root system from where all the nutrients access the upper plant regions such as leaves and stem. Thatch should be given away with the assistance of the rake as well as the mechanized dethatcher, designed for the very process of removing the thatch.

    Plant the Grass

Once you have accomplished the task of cleaning and repairing, it is now the time for planting the grass. You need to reseed those areas where the grass is particularly brown or bare. Before you are going to reseed, get your soil tested in any agricultural laboratory to find out the actual issue and to see what those nutrients are that your soil is lacking in. After correcting your soil composition and pH, it is the time to aerate it well with the help of blowers or even the sports shoes can be employed to aerate the upper surface of the soil. Following that, it is the best time to seed good quality seed in accordance with the weather and climatic conditions of your region. Manual seeding is good if you have a small yard, however, for the bigger yard; use the broadcast spreader for seeding.
