How Do I Prepare My Lawn for the Summer?

The summer months are right around the corner. Once we can get past some tough times here in this spring season, the rejuvenation of the world and this country will be in full force come summertime. With that being said, your lawn can be susceptible to many different aspects of summer weather. To prepare for this, here are some tips on how to do so: 

Spring Cleanup for Lawn Care

Spring Cleanup 

It’s very easy to skip this part when you have so much on your plate as a homeowner. Make sure you don’t forget to cleanup your lawn during the spring season this year. Pick up twigs, mow the lawn, and weed areas that need it will go a long way before the summer season. 

If you’re not quite sure how to prepare your lawn for the summer season, Brother Tree & Lawn Service is here to help with everything that you need. 

Mowing and Aerating Your Lawn

Mowing your lawn in the Spring is highly important. Once you clean up your lawn, you should mow it because it can grow much faster in the early spring. You may observe the growth and mow more frequently, but don’t overdo it. You never want to damage the lawn before summer hits. 

As for aeration, removing the thatch and moss is important for the health of your lawn. The movement of water, air, fertilizer, and other nutrients in the grass can be limited if enough thatch and moss is built up from the cold months. 

Irrigating Your Lawn – Watering your lawn in the early spring can be very beneficial, but you want to make sure that the weather is also cooperating. If it’s a rainy spring, irrigating your lawn frequently won’t be necessary because your lawn will already be getting the right nutrients. Make sure on the streak of really nice and warm spring days, you’re watering the lawn for growth.
