Keeping A Healthy Lawn Year Round With Spring Lawn Care

By Mr.Andrew Caxton

Lawn care in springtime is not overly difficult and if you miss it out, you will see negative consequences.

If you like to take care of your garden and if you like it to look at its best all year round, you will know that it takes a lot of time and effort. This is especially true with lawn care and if you want to keep it looking at its best at all times, you will need to ensure that you take care of it throughout the different seasons.

Taking care of your lawn in spring is essential but not overly hard work. There are certain things that you need to do in order to ensure that your lawn stays looking healthy in spring and if you don’t, it could have negative effects on the lawn throughout the year.

The Perfect Spring Lawn Care Routine

A lot of the time, looking after your lawn in spring can save a lot of time and effort in the other months. Now the main things that need doing in spring are watering and fertilizing. However, depending upon how damaged your lawn actually is, it will determine how much work needs to be done before you can fertilize the lawn.

It could be that your lawn needs to be de-thatched or aerated beforehand. By aerating the lawn it helps the water as well as the nutrients that the lawn needs, to soak into the soil a lot more effectively. De-thatching the lawn helps you to remove any dead leaves and grass, as well as dead roots and that helps to keep the lawn looking good and it will help to stop diseases from spreading onto the lawn.

When it actually comes time to apply the fertilizer to the lawn, you should never use a chemical fertilizer. This is because chemical fertilizers leave chemicals on the lawn that can be potentially dangerous to the environment and yourself. It would be a good idea to use a good, organic fertilizer and if you are unsure as to which one to use, take a few lawn soil samples to have them analyzed. The results will come back and you will be told which fertilizer best suits your soils needs.

Overall you can purchase organic fertilizer in all good garden stores. Don’t forget that you should also thoroughly water the lawn to help it to grow properly. You will not need to water the lawn every single day and if you choose to use sprinklers, you should ideally use them between midnight and eight o clock in the morning.
