Get Your Lawn Ready For Spring!

While it may still feel like winter, spring is right around the corner. That means it’s time to start thinking about preparing your lawn for the season. After months of snow, rain, or ice your lawn may appear dull and lifeless.


Follow these 5 simple tips to revive your lawn. 


  1. Spread the snow During the winter, it’s common for snow to accumulate and pile up on your lawn. While a light layer of snow may not cause any harm, heavy snowfall or piles of snow from shoveling can suffocate your grass and lead to snow mold. To avoid this, use a snow blower or shovel to spread out snow piles.  This promotes drainage, prevents mold, and protects your grass from damage.
  2. Tune Up Your Lawn Mower
    Although it may not be time to mow your lawn yet, now is the perfect time to tune up your lawn mower. Make sure your mower is in good working condition by changing the oil, sharpening the blades, and installing a new air filter. This will ensure your mower is ready to go when it’s time to start cutting your grass.
  3. Clean up Debris
    Once all that snow has finally melted, it’s essential to clean up any debris that may have accumulated on your lawn. This includes sticks, branches, leaves, and anything else you may find on your lawn. A light raking of your lawn clears the way for future lawn maintenance.
  4. Inspect for damage
    Take a walk around your lawn to inspect for any damage caused by winter weather. Check for signs of ice damage, snow mold, or rodent tunneling. Identifying any damage early will allow you to address it before it becomes a more significant issue.
  5. Plan ahead
    While warmer weather may still seem far off, it’s never too early to start thinking about overseeding, fertilizing, and aerating your lawn. Consider hiring a lawn professional, like Nutri-Lawn to help you create a customized plan to get your lawn ready for spring. 


By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your lawn will be healthy when warmer weather arrives.
