Your Side, Where The Grass IS Actually Greener!

Spring Lawn Care Tips  

After a long winter, the birds start to chirp and the weather starts to get warmer. Spring is here, and it's time to get your lawn back into shape.  Many homeowners in Charlotte tend to let their lawns go throughout winter due to snow and cold weather. Fortunately, with these springtime lawn care tips, you'll be able to take proper care of your yard every step of the way! 

Lawn Fertilization 

Fertilizing your lawn helps it recover from the stress of snow and ice, as well as all those brown leaves that have piled up over winter. The best time to fertilize your yard is between February - April. Additionally, it's always best to fertilize your lawn when you're not expecting rain for a day or two because fertilizing in the rain will wash away many of the nutrients that you apply.

Aeration and Overseeding 

Lawn aeration and overseeding can improve your yard's turf quality. To aerate, use a lawn aerator tool to poke small holes in the grass. This allows air and water to better penetrate the roots of your lawn - it also preps your lawn for overseeding. Overseeding provides necessary nutrients to your lawn that are not applied at other times during the year. These nutrients will help your grass to become thicker and stronger.

Weed Control

Once the weather starts to warm up, it is the perfect time to start thinking about controlling weeds. Weeds will begin to sprout out of the ground at this time and it is important to be proactive about preventing them from taking over your lawn. If you let these weeds grow, they can easily take over your garden and lawn by choking out healthy grass. There are several ways that you can remove weeds on your own.  One way to do this is to pluck them out of the ground. This works well for smaller weeds, but you may want to consider using a chemical weed killer if there are too many weeds growing in your lawn or garden.

I totally agree on asking for professional help. Lawn Companies obviously know better how to beautify the curb appeal of your lawn.
