Stepping up your lawn care in preparation for the spring will ensure that your lawn is not only aesthetically pleasing but healthy and strong, too! In this comprehensive guide, we will focus on all of the grass care needed to get your lawn spring-ready. We will dive into these three easy steps to cleaning up your yard and perfecting your spring lawn care:

 

  1. Dethatching
  2. Weed removal
  3. Fertilization

By following these spring lawn care maintenance tips, your lawn will be the envy of the neighborhood. Let’s get started with our first grass care tip: dethatching your lawn.

Dethatching Your Lawn

These layers of debris, also called thatch, prevent grass and soil from receiving the necessary sunlight, water, and other elements required to maintain healthy grass. Dethatching is the process of removing this dead grass so that your lawn and soil have maximum exposure to the air and other necessary elements.

Lawn dethatching is done with various tools: leaf rake, power rake, dethatching rake, and more. Whichever tool you use, be sure to rake in only one direction to gather all of the thatch. For the most effective lawn dethatching, aim to rake the entire area at least twice for maximum debris removal. Clearing old, dead grass and other debris from your lawn is just one of many spring lawn care steps that you can follow for a cleaner, healthier yard.

Removing Weeds for Spring Lawn Care

These pesky, unwanted plants seem to quickly infiltrate yards and spread rapidly. To efficiently remove weeds, make sure to pull the root up with the plant to deter future growth. Carefully discard the pulled weeds to prevent seeding and spreading during the removal process. With your lawn free of weeds, your other grass care maintenance can be more effective. 

Nourishing Grass with Liquid Fertilizer

Liquid fertilizer is an easy way to nourish your soil, and it is more effective than traditional granular fertilizer. Our liquid lawn food works from the ground up to restore nutrient imbalances and get your lawn looking lush, healthy, and green.

These are just a few reasons why we love opting for a liquid product
