Spring is here, and it's time to start thinking about getting your lawn ready for the summer months.

With the right care and attention, your lawn can thrive and be the envy of the neighborhood.
Here are some tips for getting your lawn in top shape:
Aerate - Over time, soil can become compacted, making it difficult for air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the roots of your grass. Aeration is the process of creating small holes in the soil to allow for better absorption. You can rent an aerator from a home improvement store or hire a lawn care professional to do it for you.
Fertilize - Fertilizing your lawn provides essential nutrients that your grass needs to grow strong and healthy. Choose a fertilizer that is appropriate for your grass type and apply it according to the instructions.
Weed Control - Weeds can quickly take over your lawn and choke out the grass. Take steps to prevent weeds by applying a pre-emergent herbicide, which will prevent weed seeds from germinating. If you already have weeds in your lawn, apply a post-emergent herbicide to eliminate them.
Mowing - Regular mowing is essential to maintaining a healthy lawn. Be sure to keep your mower blade sharp and mow at the appropriate height for your grass type. Cutting your grass too short can stress it out and make it more susceptible to disease and pests.
Watering - Proper watering is crucial to the health of your lawn. Water deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth. Water in the morning or evening to avoid evaporation.
By following these tips and investing a little time and effort into your lawn care, you can enjoy a lush and healthy lawn all summer long. If you need help getting your lawn in shape, our lawn care professionals are here to help. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
