Spring Lawn Care Tips From First Response Lawn Care

We thought we would share some Spring lawn care tips to help you prepare for the season. A great lawn in the heat of Texas takes commitment. Here a few ways to make sure you have a greener springtime!

Pre-emergent Weed Control

It is essential to start the season off right. Managing the growth of weeds early this season will help your lawn flourish and grow. Pre-emergent treatment is the best way to handle early weeds and undesirable additions to your lawn as opposed to pulling them after they appear.

Our fertilizing program uses a 7 step program to ensure your yard is healthy and the best in the neighborhood. We are licensed with the Texas Department of Agriculture Lic #450863. to assure you that we are the best at what we do.

Thatch

Depending on your grass type, your thatch level in your lawn should be between ¼” to ½” in depth. If you have more than that, you will be susceptible to disease. When the thatch reaches a higher level than what’s right for it, then you will either have to invest in replacing the lawn or power raking the whole thing. To avoid over-enthusiastic thatch production, don’t over-fertilize, over water, underwater or cut your lawn too short. If de-thatching is necessary for your lawn, we offer services to help your grass recover this Spring.

Water

You will need to supplement your lawn with watering. The best method is if you use an underground irrigation system. Since the average lawn will need about 45″ to 50″ of water during the year, a sprinkler will alleviate the need to water by hose. Using a properly maintained sprinkler system will be sure that your lawn is adequately watered. We encourage you to become familiar with any watering restrictions in your area and plan your watering schedule accordingly.

Aerate

Core aeration is something that is overlooked by many homeowners. When we aerate your soil, it can pay for itself in the water savings alone. There are four reasons for aerating your lawn.

  1. Aeration fights soil compacting
  2. Aeration allows air to the grasses roots
  3. Aeration helps to control the thatch levels
  4. Aeration promotes new grass root growth in the area of the core hole

Fertilize

Grass needs nutrients to grow, to help maintain a root system which is healthy and tolerant to stress when the weather is hot. Fertilizing your lawn is also essential to keep diseases at bay and your grass stress-free. Because your lawn is an artificial environment not meant for the area you live in, it won’t survive without help. This is why the application of fertilizer with crucial nutrients is essential.

Mow

Depending on your grass type, the grass can grow faster or slower in Texas weather conditions. Mowing on a weekly schedule is important to keep the lawn healthy and maintained. Mowing every two to three weeks, for instance, will allow the turf to become stressed and start to thin out. This will increase the need to water and to fertilize.

Watering your lawn correctly and keeping it maintained is essential for a healthy, great looking lawn.

Inflatables Can Damage Your Lawn

Inflatables Can Damage Your Lawn

Inflatables Can Damage Your Lawn

We recently had a customer call with a great summer time question. For those families with children, you will appreciate this. This customer had a large (10 foot) inflatable pool taking up part of the lawn for a few days, and it killed their grass. When they discovered that there was some serious damage to the lawn underneath, they called First Response Lawn Care for solutions.

In a situation like this, we offer a few tips and advice on how to overcome the perils of inflatable pool fun versus the health of your lawn. The issue with inflatables is that they can cause damage to your lawn by blocking out air, sunlight, and water from reaching the grass beneath. We hope you’ll find the information helpful so you can continue with the summer fun with slip n slides, plastic pools, jump and bounce houses, etc.

  1. If the lawn is damaged, we can certainly reseed and provide nutrients to encourage repair.
  2. If the lawn is dead, we can quickly lay a patch of new turf in the area that is dead.
  3. Move the summer play items on the lawn every 24 hours to a different spot if the items are smaller.
  4. Empty the inflatables and hang them to dry each night. We realize this sounds like a pain, but not as painful and potentially expensive as replacing your lawn.
  5. Whether you mow yourself or have scheduled lawn maintenance by a professional, it is important to move your inflatables off of your grass before mowing.

Inflatables Can Damage Your Lawn

If you have a hard surface such as a patio, consider moving the inflatables there. One customer had a clever idea to put a big foam padding beneath so the pool bottom would stay cool and comfortable for the kids.
