To really up your landscaping game this spring, you must start early. To ensure that your lawn is lush and green for the summer months, early spring is actually the best time to start prepping. Here are some tips to get started.
First, we know that snow can take a toll on your landscape, turning your grass brown and making it appear lifeless. To revive your lawn you’ll need to give it a thorough raking which will get rid of thatch–the dead, built-up grasses that smother the otherwise healthy blades underneath. In addition, you may have compacted soil that could use some airflow to increase growth. At Greenskeeper we provide a few different aerating services that will provide your lawn with the air and water it needs to turn that bright shade of green that you so desire.
There also are some pests that can do significant damage to your lawn. From ticks to grubs small insects can really harm your landscape. We provide safe pest removal services and have the training necessary to get ride of these pests, leaving you with a better looking landscape.
Another key to lawn care are the fertilizers that you use. Depending on what fertilizer you use and when you use them can also make an impact on how your landscape looks throughout the growing season. Using a natural product is often the best choice, since you can ensure that your grass is getting the best nutrients possible. Studies have proven that natural fertilizers produce greener lawns than synthetic varieties. Check out our annual fertilizer program here.
