Important Spring Lawn Care Tips For Every Homeowner

lawn careAlthough they have been doing this every year, many homeowners are still looking for effective spring lawn care strategies to help them prepare and take care of their lawns. This is especially true if you are planning to have people over for dinner or lunch or even a barbeque night. You want your home to be more welcoming and comfortable not only to you and your family but also to your guests.

Here are some helpful tips that you can consider to ensure that your lawn remains stunning all throughout the season.

Mow the right way

An important part of spring landscaping is mowing. And this will not be effective if you don’t do it correctly. According to experts, different types of lawn grass have different minimum and maximum height requirement. For example, Zoysia and Bermuda need to be at least one to two inches in height. Centipede lawns need to be about two inches in height.

Find out what specific type of grass you are growing on your lawn and mow your lawn at the appropriate height. You should keep your lawn at that height for the rest of the season and until the end of summer.

Avoid seeding in the spring

The primary reason for this is there is usually a low success rate for growing new grass during spring and summer. Also, you will have a lot of difficulties with weeds since you will not be able to use weed control products until your new grass is mature enough. If you pursue seeding to grow new grass, make sure you spend a lot of time taking out weeds and preventing them from taking over your lawn.

As an alternative, you will have to ensure your lawn is free from any weed presence before you start seeding. This way, you will not have as many problems with weeds while waiting for your new grass to grow.

Know how much fertilizer is too much

Many spring lawn care Myrtle Beach experts strongly advise fertilizing during spring because plants are starting to grow and would need as much food as possible. On the other hand, do not apply too much fertilizer as this will damage your lawn. Aside from this, adding too much fertilizer may result in pushing out a lot of top growth which will not help the roots grow healthier.

Spring is the best time for you to properly take care and maintain your lawn. It is also the best season to start growing new plants and adding to your garden. Whatever landscaping plans you have in mind, be sure to consult first with trained and skilled professionals. This will help you ensure that what you are planning is appropriate for your type of lawn.
