How to Get Your Yard Ready for Spring

After a long winter, your yard may be looking a little bit sad. In addition to spring cleaning on the inside of your home, it's a good idea to spring clean is the exterior of your home. To help get your yard looking in tip-top shape and ready to embrace all of those spring blossoms, there are a few different things that you can do. 

1. Fertilize

Your lawn plants will need some fertilization. When starting out with your fertilization regimen, you will typically want to start as early as March or April with your first cycle of fertilizer. By starting this early on, it will help your grass and soil access the fertilizer and absorb the nutrients it needs. Then as the weather starts to warm up, you can fertilize again once every few months. Typically, you will want to apply the fertilizer to wet grass, but not on a windy day because you don't want any of the fertilizer to blow away. 

2. Cut Your Lawn Down

Before you fertilize, you should have your lawn cut; especially if it's starting to grow in patches. Once things start to heat up, it is only natural for your lawn to start its growth cycle. By mowing your lawn (or having a lawn care company come out and cut it down for you), you can help water and fertilizer get absorbed a lot easier. Plus, when you cut everything down to a more even level, your lawn is more likely to get on the same growth cycle so that it looks more even throughout the rest of the spring and well into the summer. 

3. Plant

Although things like flower bulbs are typically best planted in the fall in order to bloom in the spring, spring is still a great time to embrace your inner green thumb and start planting. Whether you decide to plant perennials or annuals, having some fresh flowers inside of your garden is a great way to really help it come to life. When you are planting flowers, just make sure that you dig a hole deep enough for each plant so that the roots can develop. Also, make sure that you plant things based on where they'll get the right amount of sun—otherwise, they will fail. 

These are just a few things to do now for a great-looking lawn. If you want to learn more about lawn care, reach out to some services near you.
