Goodbye Snow, Hello Lawn Care

As winter comes to an end and the snow begins to melt, the tough winter shows its battle scars on your lawn. After this frigid winter, all our lawns could use a little TLC. Getting your grass back to a luscious state will not happen overnight, and there is no time like the present. The best time to start your spring lawn care is while the snow is melting, and the ground is thawing. Here are a few tips that all lawn owners should take into consideration this month!

Equipment Tuneup

Now is the perfect time to complete an inventory check on your lawn care equipment. Review any dull blades, clean up any tools and check if there is anything new you should be adding to your shed this year. A few examples of tools everyone should have for basic yard care are lawnmowers, trimmers, rakes, soil knives, and double hand hoes.

Lawn Diagnosis & Repairs

As your lawn is unveiled from its winter blanket, you may notice some issues that need addressing. Issues such as salt damage, snow mould, and water pooling are the first areas of concern. Some solutions for these pesky problems are gypsum to help with the salt damage, a gentle racking can help with grey mould, and releveling your yard if you are dealing with minor drainage problems. Any other significant issues are best left to a professional service. If you uncover a problem with your lawn and you’re not sure how to fix it, reach out your local Hometurf professionals at [email protected].
