Once spring rolls around, many people look to pack in all of the spring lawn chores right away. You won’t have to rush everything all at once, but it is important to make a list of the things that your lawn may need during the springtime.
Here are some tips on how to maintain your lawn in the spring:
Raking Your Lawn
Spring cleanup of your lawn requires some raking of the lawn to be done. You may have leftover leaves from the fall that have shown up or blown around your lawn from windy weather. Raking your lawn also gets rid of the dead grass that may be around your lawn. This is the first thing you should do to your lawn when cleaning up.
Aerating Your Lawn
Aerating your lawn is very important if it is needed. If there is soil compaction over the seasons due to heavy traffic on your lawn, aerating the lawn in the spring is a necessary task to ensure a lush and healthy lawn for the summer season.
Overseeding Patchy Areas
Overseeding is the process of using grass seed to lay down on those patchy and brown spot areas of your lawn that may show up after the winter season. Sometimes, heavy traffic or dead areas can appear after a long winter.
You can fertilize your lawn organically by using compost or a mulching mower to chop up grass clippings and use for source of nitrogen for the lawn. Helping your lawn get its nutrients early on in the spring is a good thing for the health of the lawn for the summer season.
