It’s time to start thinking about spring and how you can get your lawn ready for the season. Taking the proper steps and avoiding mistakes will ensure your yard is spring-ready—green, lush, and healthy.
Spring Lawn Care Dos
- Make sure your lawn gets enough water each week—either through rainfall or irrigation methods. Hint: Spring temperatures are cooler than summertime temperatures. Therefore, adjust irrigation duration accordingly. Reserve the 1-1.5″ per week water requirements for the high heat of summer.
- Rake away any leaves left-over from the fall and winter. Leaves, sticks, and debris can prevent your lawn from soaking up the sunshine it needs to stay healthy.
- Test your soil to identify the nutrients it requires to thrive in the spring.
Spring Lawn Care Don’ts
- Avoid cutting the lawn too short, which can negatively impact the crucial root support during the springtime.
- Don’t schedule pest control or sprays in the spring unless absolutely necessary.
- Avoid fertilizing our southern grasses with nitrogen-based fertilizers until the turf is actively growing.
