The holidays have passed and Valentine’s Day, New Years, Christmas and Hanukkah greetings have passed.  Spring will be here before long and that means Easter, Passover, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day will be here before long. Get ready to store your snow blowers and get ready for spring fertilizing and lawn treatments.  You will have a better lawn if you take early steps to prevent weeds.  Here are some of the things you should do:

Inspect your lawn from winter damage such as compacted soil, damage done by pets, and signs of disease such as dry, dying, or brown patches of grass. Early fertilization is the key to getting off to the right start.  Check with your garden center to make sure you are using the correct fertilizer. Adding lime to your lawn during Spring is also important if you need to adjust the PF factor.  Aeration will help get the new grass growing if the soil is compacted.  Remember to put down crab grass preventer and fresh seed to get things moving quickly and keep your lawn moist.  Can’t do it all?  Hire a lawn service.
