LawnStarter's pros offer fertilization, routine maintenance, weed control, landscaping, and anything else you need to keep your lawn looking great.
The Most Common Grass Types in Dearborn: Cool-season grasses will do best here since the temperature almost never gets too hot. These include Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, and tall fescue.
Spring Lawn Care Tips for Dearborn: Once the snow has melted, look for any spots on your lawn that are matted-looking and grey or pinkish in color –– this could be snow mold. To get rid of it, rake those areas to loosen up the dead leaf tissue. Applying a spring fertilizer can also help the grass recover quickly. Spring is the time to tune up your mower and sharpen its blades. A sharp mower is better for the frail grass just coming back to life. This is also a good time to reseed dead areas in your lawn.
Summer Lawn Care Tips for Dearborn: Dearborn only receives about 3 inches of rainfall each month, but your lawn needs about 1.5 inches each week, so it's important to lightly but frequently water your lawn. Keeping your cool-season grass watered also helps ensure that it doesn’t go into a dormant state if the temperatures get to hot in the summer for a few days. This is also the best time to apply weed control. Mow weekly and if you want to apply a fertilizer, do so in August or September when the nights are cooler and there's more rain. This will help make sure the nutrients reach the roots.
Common Lawn Pests in Dearborn: Grubs, chinch bugs, billbugs, European crane flies, armyworms, and sod webworms.
Common Lawn Diseases: Dollar spot, red thread, pink patch, leaf spot, leaf blotch, snow mold, necrotic ring spot, and rust are common diseases, molds, or fungi that wreak havoc on your turf. When you spot discolored or bare patches in your lawn, be sure to treat them right away or call LawnStarter for help.
