Spring Lawn Maintenance That Will Save You in the Summer Months

May 22, 2018 | Lawn Care

With spring here, now is the time to start preparing for those hot summer months. Have your guests impressed by your beautiful, lush lawn during your parties and family cookouts by starting your spring lawn maintenance.

Clean it Up

Winter is over! Be sure to rake up all those dead leaves and get them to the curb. Give your lawn a chance to breathe and get yourself a good view of what needs to be done before those scorching summer months.

Don’t be Afraid to Get Dirty

Soil preparation is an important part of the process when installing sod to your Florida lawn. It gives your grass the best chance it has to grow healthy and vibrant. The nutrients in your soil will feed the grass and keep it strong. Take care of your soil by spreading fertilizer and aerating compacted soil. 

Don’t Give Weeds a Chance

Weeds can repress new growth and make it impossible for healthy roots to take hold. Preventative herbicide treatments can prevent weeds from getting out of hand. Investing in protecting your lawn now can save you time and money in the long run.

Don’t Overlook the Basics

Some of the Central Florida turfgrass options provided by Lake Jem Farms are better equipped for certain areas such as heavily shaded areas or places with high traffic. Schedule watering based on the weather and temperatures. Mowing and maintenance may be needed more for certain turfgrass types.
