Spring has officially arrived in Minneapolis! While we still could receive another snow shower or two, it’s pretty safe to say the signs of spring are here. This is a perfect time to take a few steps to prepare your lawn for a new season of growth and renewal. Keep these tips in mind as you’re preparing to embrace the warmer temps!
Book Spring Clean Up Services
The Lawnsmith provides complete spring clean-up services for your lawn. This includes raking, mowing, and removal of debris from the cleaning. By clearing away decayed plant growth, your lawn with get an opportunity to fully soak up the sun and warm rains.
After the winter’s debris has been removed, applying lawn fertilizer helps to keep crabgrass and other weeds at bay. The Lawnsmith guarantees satisfaction with our 6-visit service! Although it may seem simple to apply lawn fertilizers, there are many factors to consider, including soil type, varieties of fertilizers and even how your lawn is utilized. For example, do you have pets and kids that enjoy spending time on your grass? We use only products safe for families and pets.
Preparation of Tools and Equipment
Do you use a lawnmower? Now’s a great time to have it checked over by a lawnmower technician, or if you’re technically inclined, complete a few steps of basic maintenance. These would include sharpening the blades, changing the oil, and checking or replacing the spark plugs. You’ll want to make sure that you cut your lawn early in spring, so the sooner your lawnmower is ready, the more quickly you’ll be able to attend to your lawn’s early growth.
As you’re checking out your lawnmower, don’t forget to bring out hoses and other garden tools to an easily accessible area for the rest of the season. Inspect your garden hoses for leaks or cracks, and try flowing water through them to ensure you have no issues with water pressure or other complications.
Check Your Irrigation System
While lack of precipitation isn’t too much of an issue typically in our spring months, it would be wise to test your irrigation system for malfunctions prior to a heat or dry spell. The last thing you’d want is to have your beautiful lawn succumb to a lack of irrigation. Try testing each zone and check drip emitters and sprinkler heads.
Mulch does much to protect garden spaces. In the hottest of months, mulch can provide protection to roots and undergrowth. Additionally, the mulch can assist in holding moisture within your soil. The Lawnsmith can make the heavy task of mulch installation simple by installing your mulch for you. Get a FREE ESTIMATE for this service here.
