|Is your lawn ready for Spring?|
Spring is just around the corner and if you don't give your lawn the attention it needs this month you may be missing out on the great potential your grass has to offer as well as setting yourself up for costly repairs or replacement in the future. Power raking, aerating and fertilizing are the three vital spring services that make a world of difference in the health and appearance of your lawn.
Power raking, also known as de-thatching, is the removal of all of the grass clippings that didn't get picked up by your mower that have built up over the last year. It also removes of all the grass that has died off over the winter months. When you de-thatch your lawn you are essentially removing the layer of dead build up that is the breeding ground for fungus and pests that could potentially destroy your lawn in a couple of weeks if gone untreated.
Aerating is when we bring in a large machine that punches holes in your lawn letting oxygen into the root system. I always like to think of aerating like the re-potting of plant. When a plants root system out grows its pot you need to either plant it in a larger pot or dig up the plant and remove some of the roots so they have room to grow. Your lawn is similar. When the root system becomes too tight and compact it affects the root systems ability to absorb water and nutrients thus smothering your grass and making it more susceptible to pests, fungus and drought.
Fertilizing your lawn is one of those things that, if not right, can ruin your lawn. I don't know how many times I've been called out to a customer's
house to find them in a panic because their lawn has been completely
burned from using too much fertilizer and they want me to fix the problem. The only solution is to wait until some of the fertilizer has been absorbed and then we have to go through the whole process of reseeding, which isn't cheap! The simple solution is to call us to take care of the fertilizing before you are in the same situation. Besides, we can usually do it for less than it would cost you to go out and purchase a spreader and a bag of fertilizer.
Fertilizing is very important to your lawns health. Over time your lawn sucks up all the nutrients from the soil leaving the soil completely dead. Fertilizing replaces these nutrients giving your grass food that it needs to be healthy and beautiful. Fertilizing regularly builds a strong root system which defends it against drought and foot traffic.
As you can see, performing these three services can lead to a healthy,
happy, lawn and a happier you because you don't have to worry about all the issues that others who don't take care of their lawn have to worry about.
