Spring Lawn Care Tips: Stay off your lawn as much as possible to risk compacting the soil, depriving it of necessary oxygen, and damaging emergency greenery. Sharpen your lawn mower’s blades and service any lawn tools you have during the winter months. Rake or spread snow evenly throughout your lawn to minimize drifts and allow a more even melt. Once the snow melts, rake the lawn to remove any leaves that weren’t gathered in the fall while aerating and rejuvenating the grass. Apply herbicides between early April and mid-May. Apply grass seed in the spring to let your grass develop strong roots and become established. Add fertilizer in the spring and test your soil’s pH. Aerate your lawn and mow conservatively.
Summer Lawn Care Tips: Don’t mow too short - cut your grass to a three-inch height. Let the clippings lay on the grass to return much-needed nutrients to the soil. Give your lawn an inch to an inch and a half of water a week, and turn your sprinkler system on between 4 and 5 AM. If your lawn is wet, cut it and gather the clippings. Apply herbicides for weeds and avoid fertilizing.
