Perfect Lawn

Spring is Sprung (Part II)

Okay then, were you able to apply some or all of the first three tips we listed for you?  Keep in mind that as we get closer and closer to summer, our opportunities to get out in front of the seasonal lawn issues become more and more challenging.

The next three tips are just as important as the first three, so do your best to spend your time and money wisely these next couple of weeks.  Your efforts will be rewarded with a lawn that your will be proud of and your neighbors will be (let’s see, what color should I choose) green with envy.    

 Perfect Lawn

I know I mentioned this in our last Blog, and I don’t want to be redundant, but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention it once again.  Some of you can do all of the below yourselves, but if you can’t, or lack the time, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a lawn to be proud of.  We at Sisco Construction & Landscaping are here with the experience, equipment and most importantly the personnel to take this off your plate.  You need only contact us and you’re free to move on to the next item on you “To Do” list. 

Spring Lawn Care Tip #4: Over seeding

Is your lawn riddled with bare patches due to dog spots, heavy traffic or neglect? If so, you may need to apply grass seed to fill in those bare patches. This solution is known as “over seeding lawns.” Apply a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer when you over seed. Five weeks after the grass germinates, apply a quick-release nitrogen fertilizer. source-about

Spring Lawn Care Tip #5: Fertilizing

Lawns can be fertilized organically by using compost and mulching mowers. But for those who prefer chemical fertilizers, some manufacturers provide a schedule for fertilizing lawns. Many experts, however, recommend a lighter feeding in spring and a heavier one in late fall for the types of lawn grasses known as “cool-season grasses.” Too much fertilizer in spring can lead to disease and weed problems. In addition to the above tasks of spring lawn care, don’t forget weed control and making sure your equipment is ready for the lawn maintenance season. source-about

Spring Grass Care Tip #6: Applying Pre-emergent Herbicides

If you know that you have a problem with the annual weed, crabgrass, then fertilization in spring should go hand in hand with the application of pre-emergent herbicides. As their name suggests, pre-emergent herbicides address weed control not “after the fact,” but before their seedlings can even emerge. Pre-emergent herbicides accomplish this by forming something of a “shield” that inhibits seed germination. Don’t undertake the core aeration task after applying pre-emergent herbicides: to do so would be to “puncture” this shield, thereby decreasing its effectiveness.

Crabgrass begins its assault on lawns in spring, when its seeds germinate. In fact, my suggestion is that over seeding be carried out in autumn, rather than spring, is based in part on the threat posed by a spring crabgrass invasion. “So why not just begin by killing the crabgrass first with a pre-emergent herbicide?” perhaps you ask. Well, the trouble is that most pre-emergent herbicides work against not only weed seeds, but grass seeds, as well! source-about
