Your lawn and garden are one of the first things people see before entering your home, so it’s important to maintain their health and appearance. However, winter weather can be extremely harsh on your home’s lawn and garden, making it difficult to maintain during the cool temperatures of the winter months. As we’re entering into a new season with warmer temperatures, it’s time to give your lawn a little TLC, preparing it for the upcoming months of spring. Continue reading for helpful tips on preparing your lawn for the spring season.

Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning is one of the first steps in prepping your lawn for spring. Spring cleaning consists of pulling weeds, trimming overgrown tree branches and shrubs, raking leaves, and removing excess twigs, dead plants, and other debris accumulated over the winter months. Removing excess debris from your lawn allows it to absorb nutrients and water properly.

Invest in a Lawn Irrigation System

Lawn irrigation systems are great investments for your home’s landscape, allowing you to create and maintain a lawn or garden that’s healthy, lush, beautiful, vibrant, and an ideal space for various outdoor activities and events. Lawn irrigation systems add value to your home, save you money on monthly water costs, reduce water waste, prevent uneven watering, and make watering your home’s lawn more convenient and less strenuous. Investing in a lawn irrigation system is essential in providing your home with a well-maintained landscape, especially during spring and summer.

Fertilize

After enduring the cool temperatures of the fall and winter months, fertilizing your lawn is important and can be extremely beneficial in increasing its health and appearance. It provides your lawn with nutrients helping to reduce weed growth, plant disease, and pests, improves the health of your soil, and increases grass and plant growth, amongst other benefits. When prepping your lawn for the spring season, fertilizing is key.

Mowing Your Lawn

Mowing your lawn is essential for developing a thicker and fuller lawn during the spring season. Based on the climate of your home’s location, it’s recommended that you mow your lawn every five days, especially at the beginning of the spring season. This prevents your grass from growing too high or cutting it too short, keeping your grass’s roots from reproducing properly.
