The bright colors of spring are just around the corner, and with it comes a lot more than beautiful sights. The sun shining down on your lawn will make you feel like nothing else matters! It’s time to start thinking about what kind of outdoor space best suits all those new greens: an expansive deck or patio? The weather may also be playing tricks by turning chilly at night but remaining warm during daytime hours; don’t forget if there is anything we’ve learned from experience (and instinct). It knows that preparing now can help save energy later. Take a look at these five spring lawn care tips in Annapolis to help you get started with your spring yard care needs this year.
With the busy spring and summer season quickly approaching, now is a great time to fertilize your lawn. Fertilizers can provide nutrients that help trees grow into healthy plants or give them an extra boost in their growth cycle, so they’re ready for action when it comes! If you don’t know what type of fertilizer would work best on YOUR yard (or if there are specific needs), get checked out with soil tests which will tell us if more nitrogen has been needed since last fall – this helps ALL vegetation flourish together nicely.
Schedule The Watering Cycle
Your lawn is a living thing that needs to be taken care of, just like any other plant. Once it starts growing in the spring, you should give your yard regular watering and ensure there are enough water-efficient methods like drip irrigation or high-efficiency nozzles for optimal use!
Mow Your Yard Regularly
Mow the lawn weekly to help keep your yard lush. It won’t overwork your yard’s soil or use of equipment. If possible, try shorter lawn mowing sessions. Even better yet – have us do it!
Aerate Compacted Soil
To give your lawn the best chance of success this coming spring, you must aerate and loosen any compacted soil. Aerating soil can be done with a plug or spike Aerator (that rental options are available), which will help encourage good growth by allowing air into plugs and water, PHP nutrients & seeds as well!
Get A Grip On Weeds
You know those weed problems go with our environment if you live in Annapolis. They multiply and can develop into full-blown plants. Mostly, they are pesky issues for landscapers and homeowners alike! To keep weeds from taking over your yard, apply a pre-emergent herbicide in early spring to help the problem before they get out of hand.
