Spring is rolling around and it is time to prepare to give your lawn a fighting chance at looking healthy and being resilient. There are things that you can do to give it a great start by following this spring lawn guide that I am providing you. So take a look and try it so you can see the results for yourself.
Reflect on last season if you will. Did you have a problem with weeds? Not everybody does. What about bare spots that you just hated because it made your lawn look like an eyesore?
Well, in this guide I will address those two issues as I go along.
Spring tells us it is time to clean up and that includes the lawn as well. We do this by picking up all debris from the lawn like sticks and other objects. Because of the winter months, there will be dead grass that you must remove.
Then there will also be dead weeds as well that needs to be removed. This can be done by taking a rake and pulling out as much as you can so that your lawn can breathe easy. This way you will not be allowing a thick thatch build up.
Hibernation Is Over
Just like a bear, when your grass begins to awaken it will be hungry and ready to be nourished. As it is getting time to mow you will be doing your lawn some justice if you apply some lawn food to it. There are many brands of fertilizers with organic & non-organic products.

If you did have a problem with weeds last season you might want to use a product that has something to knock out the weeds as well. If you have patchy weed problems you can get a spray type weed fighter.
Patchy Lawn Spots Bringing You Down?
This is a problem that happens because of a few things. Pet urine can cause this as well as excessive traffic. Another cause is a shady area. The thing to do here is overseeding with whichever product is designed for the problem you are targeting. Click Here to see what is available.
This should be done in the early Spring for best results. Remember that any time you seed you need to keep the soil moist so that what you planted will germinate well.
Below is a video for your viewing pleasure.
If you do these few steps you will be giving your lawn a heck of a start for the season. Your lawn will be healthy and grow strong with a stronger root system to ensure it. There are other things to consider like aeration if your lawn has a heavy compacted soil problem.
