While the idea of spring brings excitement to many, the reality is that you do not have endless hours to spend digging in the garden and crossing everything off your long list of spring cleaning. However, spring lawn care is crucial to your lawn and landscape because of the fact that your lawn has been through a cold winter and is about to embark on a hot summer. What you do (or don’t do) now will directly affect the condition of your lawn through the entire year.
For those of you who are wondering where you will find the time for spring lawn care, our Topeka lawn care team at Schendel Lawn & Landscape is here to help! We have a few quick spring lawn care tips to share and even if you don’t have the time to tackle these items, we offer many lawn care services to take all the worry and work off your shoulders. If you are looking for a simple and easy-to-follow plan for your spring lawn care, here are the essentials to maintaining a lush and healthy lawn through the spring and summer season:
Fertilization – After a winter of cold weather, frost, ice and possibly snow, your lawn is in serious need of replenishment. There are many different types of fertilizer out there so make sure to read labels so you know exactly what is going into your lawn and what kind of care should be taken after fertilization. No time? Not a problem! Call the Topeka lawn care pros if your lawn is in need of replenishment this spring.
Weed and pest control – No matter how much quality fertilizer you apply, if you do not have a plan to prevent weeds and lawn pests, your lawn may not be lush and healthy after all. Both weeds and lawn pests can take a major toll on your grass and landscape which is why recommend having a preventative weed treatment like our WeedZero lawn program.
Lawn mowing – If the grass is growing, it’s time to start mowing! Seriously though, your grass should be kept at a height of around 2 inches tall in order to allow maximum nutrition (sunlight and water) to penetrate the grass blades. Frequent mowing is the best way to go, but if you are already out of time then call us to learn more about our lawn mowing services.
With the spring season off to a fast start, make sure that if you are living in Topeka or surrounding areas in Kansas, that you contact Schendel Lawn & Landscape to sign up for your spring lawn care services. Even when you don’t have the time, we are happy to help you maintain a lush and healthy lawn to enjoy all season long!
