Lawn Care Tips

Clean Up

Rake up leaves, branches and other debris that can suffocate grass plants. Don't forget about cleaning out gutters and valleys on your roof. Do this first before cleaning up the lawn or the first wind or rain storm may make a mess of all your hard work.

Fertilize

The sooner in the year you can fertilize, the better. Try not to use a fertilizer with a lot of nitrogen (N), a balanced fertilizer will be more useful to the grass plants and will help to reduce excessive top growth. Fertilizers that contain a small percentage of the mineral iron (Fe) will promote a darker green.

Seed

Identify spots that may need reseeding, and why they need reseeding. Is the soil compacted? It may need to be aerated. Is the lawn getting enough sun? Trimming low branches will benefit your lawn accordingly. Choose the right seed (sun or shade?) and look for high percentages of perennial type grass in the seed mix. Spring is the best time for overseeding for lawn renovation. Disturb the soil for best seed-to-soil contact, and fertilize with a lower-nitrogen (N), higher-potassium (K) formula to encourage root growth (nitrogen is the first number on the bag, and potassium is the last number, such as 15-0-10). Water thoroughly and protect the lawn from disturbance from people as animals as much as possible.
