Winter has passed, hooray! Now it’s time to bring your lawn back to life for spring. At the Legacy Group, we enjoy providing our customers with the highest quality of lawn maintenance, fertilization and weed control based on what their property needs, but you can never have too much knowledge about your lawn, right? Especially if you have any kind of green-thumb like ours. That’s why we’ve taken the time to put together a short guide to reviving your lawn for spring. Check it out!
Topsoil is loose, dark, and full of decomposing organic material. Grass loves it. So if your yard is full of clay, it’s time to spread some topsoil.
Even though lawns are technically a type of monoculture, grass is a complex ecosystem, full of plant roots, microbes, and insects. Maintaining that system’s proper functionality involves keeping the soil loose so that air and water can get in and out. Over time, the soil beneath your lawn becomes compacted, squeezing off nutrients from the grass.
Seed and Water
It may be time to reseed if your lawn has patches. Pick a species of grass that works with your soil type and climate and plant seeds early in the season—basically, as soon as the ground thaws.
These are just a few things you can do in order to prepare your lawn for the spring time.
