Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Spokane
Spokane, also referred to as the "Lilac City," requires a lot of yard maintenance because of the year-round abundance of sunshine. Despite how simple it is to mow a lawn, many people lack the time. Let LawnStarter handle the lawn care so you can enjoy your free time doing other things.
Best Grass Types for Spokane: Because of the city's long, harsh winters and relatively short growing season, Bentgrass, Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, and fine fescue are the four grass types that are best for planting in Spokane.
Best Time to Plant Grass: Although planting can be done in the late summer or early fall (especially if irrigation is available) in eastern Washington, springtime is typically the best time due to the soil moisture and weather.
Spring Lawn Care Tips for Spokane: Remember during spring to mow at least once every 4 to 7 days. The spring is also a perfect time to have your lawn mower blades sharpened before the growing season truly begins. Avoid complete fertilizers containing phosphorus and potassium as much as possible. Proper watering is key to ensure your lawn doesn’t develop any brown or wilted patches. Spring is also a great time to get rid of any excess thatch on your lawn just before the growing season begins.
Fall Lawn Care Tips for Spokane: In Spokane, fall is one of the most crucial times to take care of your grass. Rake up all the leaves and other undesired rubbish before you do anything to your grass. Applying full fertilizer in the early part of September and nitrogen-only fertilizer in the early part of November is a good fertilization schedule to follow. Finally, continue to mow the grass as long as it's still growing, but remember to never cut more than one-third of the grass's height at one time.
Common Lawn Pests: White grubs, sod webworms, caterpillars, cutworms, and chinch bugs.
