Spring is here!
It’s time to wake your lawn from its winter dormancy and get a start on maintaining its health. There are several things every homeowner should do in early spring to ensure a flourishing lawn that lasts through the following fall. The following is some of the ways that First Response Lawn Care can help keep your lawn needs met.
Clean Debris and Dethatch
Rake leaves, twigs, fallen branches, and thatch to let your grass breathe and access sunlight.
If your soil is compacted, First Response Lawn Care can aerate your soil to allow your lawn’s root system to access the sun, water, and nutrients from fertilizer.
It depends on your fertilizing schedule and grass type, but this might be the time to apply a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer once your grass starts actively growing.
Apply Pre-Emergent Herbicide
Prevent weeds and crabgrass from growing in your lawn. First Response Lawn Care can treat your lawn with a preventative weed killer.
We start out mowing at a height of 3″ high in spring. Mowing low early in the spring chops off the dead tops of grass blades. We gradually raise the mower setting as the weather gets warmer.
