It’s the middle of April and winter continues to drag on with another blast of snow in the forecast for this weekend. If you are like us, you are hoping this weekend’s cold, wintry weather is the last of the season because enough is enough already!
Once this winter officially comes to an end, you will finally be able to get out on your lawn and in your gardens to get them ready for the upcoming season. Just imagine, the smell of spring right around the corner with flower blooming and kids finally being able to get outside and play in the yard.
However, if you really want your yard to be safe to play in throughout the year, you should consider completing a few early spring maintenance choirs.
Dethatching will rid your lawn of dead blades of grass which will reduce the chance of disease in your lawn. Dethatching also keeps dead blades of grass from soaking up nutrients that the rest of your lawn needs to grow.
Spring is the perfect time to spread new seed throughout your lawn. As your lawn ages and blades of grass die off, new seed will replace the dead seeds and help your lawn keep its thickness and health throughout the year.
By completing the two simple tasks above, your lawn will be off to the healthiest start it has been for many years.
