Syracuse, New York, can you feel spring coming?
I know the 50 degree weather we had last weekend let us know its right around the corner! Warmer weather should get you thinking about your lawn and what your lawn needs to look great this year! Here are some great spring lawn tips for our Syracuse lawns.
A Clean Yard: Leftover leaves, sticks and other debris that has accumulated over the winter needs to be cleaned up to allow the sunlight to penetrate in to your soil. Wet leaves left on the lawn can smotheryour grass, leading to disease and eventually kill it if not taken care of. For grass that is matted down a light raking will get it to stand up and start taking in all of that spring sunlight.
Feed Your Lawn: Everybody needs to eat, right? Your lawn is no different. A spring fertilizer treatment is a must to get your lawn to wake up from the long winter. To be its healthiest your lawn needs nutrients that it can only get from a good quality spring fertilizer.
Pre-Emergent: Another very important part of spring lawn care is applying a pre-emergent weed treatment. Pre-Emergent weed treatment will attack the weeds at the top layer of soil before they even emerge out of the ground. This is the easiest way to combat weeds in your turf and will save you from countless hours of pulling weeds by hand!
