Lawn-care techniques can vary, depending on the time of the year. While some of the following tips do apply year round, they are specifically designed to help you get the most out of your lawn during the spring months. Spring is the best time for your lawn to thrive, so let it!
You May Want to Skip the Poisons
A lot of us take advantage of the pleasant spring weather to get out there and deal with the weeds, but the chemical herbicides that many of us use may not be doing as much good as we think. Many of them only damage the grass and may even affect the health of animals and children without effectively eliminating any of the weeds. Some weeds can be pulled, or simply left alone if they are not a threat to your grass and plants.
Know How to Mow
Do a little research and find out which mowers can get you the trim you want. This can depend on your type of grass, yard obstacles, climate or yard size. If you have a larger lawn, a zero-turn lawn mower can optimize your mowing precision and time. According to Husqvarna.com, these machines have “high-capacity cutting decks” and the “ability to turn around its own axis,” making them perfect for tackling those huge yard projects. Electric trimmers are perfect for smaller yards, especially if you are on a budget and want to stay earth friendly.
Cut Less Frequently
A lot of people trim their grass to an inch or two in the hopes that this will make it take longer between mowings but, in truth, it renews so fast that you don’t really need to worry about that. It’s a better idea not to over trim the grass, but to let it get a little “shaggy” between cuttings. At three inches or more, your grass is going to be better at absorbing water and sunlight. You could potentially save a lot of extra money during the spring months when it comes to lawn watering expenses.
Taking care of your lawn in the spring is largely a matter of just allowing nature to do its thing. The most important things you lawn needs include sunlight, good soil and water. In most regions, the spring season is generous enough to provide these natural resources abundantly. During the summer and autumn months, it can be a challenge to keep your greenery thriving. So, this season, enjoy your beautiful lawn without fretting too much about its upkeep. Let it grow a little freer than you may be used to and minimize your use of chemicals and other unnatural products. By the time June rolls around, your yard will be healthy and ready for the hot summer months.
