Spring Lawn Preparation – Get Your Lawn Ready to Shine For Summer
Category: Landscape Restoration | Friday, February 1, 2013
Winter has finally ended and Spring is here. The days are getting longer and warmer, and that signals that it is time for us to get out there and begin planting. We all know that the actions we take during the spring pay their dividends in the summer time. But often we neglect spring lawn preparation in San Diego.
It doesn’t take long after winter for our grass to start growing again. And after the first few weeks, our lawn will grow at a faster rate with each passing week. Depending on your type of lawn, you may need to start the first few cuts at a lower blade height. Getting an early start to your landscape restoration in San Diego is essential for a lush summer lawn.
Those with fine lawns will find that it may be necessary to keep a very low setting on the blade as well as cut more than once a week. While those with lawns that are used more, say for your children to play in, then cutting more than once per week is not necessary and you won’t have to use the lowest setting.
One of the downsides of spring is weeds. If you do not treat your lawn in time you will find that it might end up overrun with weeds of all varieties. Whether you deal with this yourself or call a professional company is up to you, but you should attack weeds at the first sign of them.
Another good tip is to use fertilizer early to prepare and strengthen your lawn for the hot summer months. Lawn fertilizers contain nutrients that your grass will enjoy and benefit greatly from.
By taking the time to prepare your lawn when the grass starts growing, you will set it up for a great summer! Don’t waste time, get started today on your San Diego spring lawn preparation!
