Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Lockport
Lockport’s warm and humid summers and cold winters take a toll on your lawn. Keeping your grass green and healthy is a lot of work. Good news: You don’t have to do it all yourself. Let LawnStarter take the yard work off your plate. We’ll handle the routine maintenance, like mowing and edging, as well as fertilizing, weed control, landscaping, and tree trimming.
Most Common Grass Types in Lockport: Tall fescue, perennial ryegrass, Kentucky bluegrass, and fine fescue
Fall Lawn Care Tips: Overseed your lawn sometime between mid-August and mid-September to give the seeds a chance to establish roots before the ground frosts.
Don’t let the fallen leaves stay on the grass for too long. A thick wet blanket of dead leaves invites pests, mold, and fungus, and none of those are good for your turf. However, if you mulch the leaves and spread them over your grass, they’ll be able to return beneficial nutrients to the soil.
Fertilize your lawn in early fall and continue to mow as long as the grass is still growing, even if it’s infrequent.
Spring Lawn Care Tips: Clear your lawn of all the leftover winter debris and aerate the compacted soil. This is also a great time to test your soil to see what it needs so you can select the best fertilizer to use.
You’ll also want to kill all the weeds and keep pests away.
Sharpen your mower’s blades before the first cut of the season (which should be after the temperature is consistently reaching 40 degrees).
Oh, and pay attention to the amount of water your grass is getting. In general, your lawn will need 1-1.5 inches of water per week, but with spring being so rainy, you might only need to use the sprinkler system every once in a while.
