Everyone dreams about having a lush, green and healthy lawn. We head out for walks at night or in the morning wondering how our neighbors end up with the greenest lawns out there. Today, we want to help you get that lawn you’ve always wanted with a few spring lawn care tips – adding more “green” to your green home!

Many home owners have year round lawn care. Lawn care specialists know exactly what to do when it comes to your lawn care maintenance. It’s interesting to note, it all starts with the type of grass you have. For example, right from the get-go, landscapers will help you decide what type of grass grows best for the part of the country you live in. In addition, landscapers will take a look at how much grass you have, the climate, and how much sun/shade your grass will have. So, if you’ve just built your brand new home, it’s very important to consult a specialist to help you get off on the right foot when it comes to lawn care.

If you have an existing lawn, and haven’t been consistent with your year round maintenance, here are some things you can do now to get your lawn ready to show off this summer!

Obviously, spring is “clean up” time. In some parts of the country, that clean up may take a bit more effort, but overall, getting rid of the dead grass and leaves is important. It’s a very good idea to aerate your lawn to allow your lawn to breathe and drain more efficiently.

In addition, you may have some dead spots. Adding some more grass seed certainly won’t hurt, and will help freshen up your lawn. This is an area again, where you have to be sure to know what grass you planted initially, and what type of grass grows well where you are.

Now it’s time to fertilize! Many people are do-it-yourselfers when it comes to fertilizing, and many will hire a lawn care specialist to do it for you. Again, this is a good way to go, because they will put your lawn on a “schedule” and make sure to fertilize at the right time, with the right amount.

This may sound very obvious, but watering your lawn is key to a green and healthy lawn.

Starting now, and throughout the summer, maintaining your lawn is necessary – keeping it cut to the right length, fertilizing when necessary and watering it enough will help keep your grass in tip top shape!
