It has been long winter. A very long winter. But we assure you spring is on it’s way and once the snow melts, it is a good idea to clean-up your lawn and garden.
While we still have a few weeks before the snow melts, now is the time to put your spring clean-up plans in order. Whether you plan to do the clean-up work yourself or with the help of a professional, the benefits of a spring clean-up are evident come summer, and your lawn is lush and green.
What is involved in a spring clean-up?
Leaf and debris pick-up
This includes picking up the leaves and debris that fell on your lawn and in your beds before the snow, and any debris that may have accumulated over the winter months. If leaves were not cleaned up in the fall, they may be very wet, heavy and probably don’t smell that great.
This is the process of removing thatch - the layer of dead grass and leftover clippings from the previous season(s). Removing this layer helps your lawn by better exposing the soil and roots to sun, oxygen and water.
First mow and trim
This will leave your lawn looking clean and manicured, and prepares the grass for the summer months ahead. It also helps pick-up any remaining debris and clippings the power rake leaves behind.
This process punches tiny holes into the lawn to loosen soil and expose it to oxygen, water, fertilizer and any other nutrients. It helps with soil compaction.
If you are looking for that lush, green lawn, fertilizer can help achieve those results and is the last step in a full spring-clean-up package. And if you aerate your lawn, this is the best opportunity to get those additional nutrients down into the soil.
