Well, we are off to an early start this spring!
Thanks to some warm temps and record rainfall this month, the snow has pretty well vanished in all areas. As usual, there is a lot of debris down, snow plow damage, standing water, matted down turf, and snow mold in some areas.
Spring Lawn Advice
Contrary to popular belief, it is not very beneficial to just fertilize your turf as soon as the snow is gone. A lot of turf plants are still coming out of dormancy and coupled with unpredictable weather.
An early applied fertilizer will just run-off or leach to areas not intended or wanted. We recommend waiting till at least the 1st or 2nd week in April. The best thing you can do to get your lawn and landscape going this spring is to have a thorough spring cleanup performed.
Remove all downed debris, try to drain waterlogged/flooded areas, rake out any matted down turf areas, and try to fit that plowed up chunk of turf back where it came from and tamp down. If you feel your lawn needs some seeding this spring for whatever reason, please contact us prior to doing so; so we may schedule proper timing for applications.
