Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring this year, and we sure hope he’s right! So don’t let spring catch you by surprise. Spring lawn care is crucial for a healthy, lush lawn that lasts the rest of the year. Prime Lawn & Landscape is dedicated to providing quality lawn care and landscape design services throughout the Newark, OH, area. Prime your lawn for success by following these simple tips.

Spring Lawn Care

1. Raking

While raking may seem like a fall task, a good spring raking is also highly beneficial. Raking allows you to remove dead leaves and other debris from the lawn, and helps prevent thatch build-up. Excessive thatch can make it difficult for water and nutrients to penetrate to the roots of your grass. Raking also helps break up clumps of grass that have matted together over winter that would otherwise inhibit new growth.

2. Aerate and Overseed

If winter hit your lawn hard, our aeration services will bring your grass back to life. Compacted soil in high traffic areas leads to thin, patchy grass. Spring aeration services will break up compacted soil and allow more air, water, and nutrients to reach deep down into the root zone. When combined with overseeding, aeration leads to a thick lush lawn you can be proud of.

3. Weed Control and Fertilization

For optimal results, we recommend investing in our 4-step fertilization and weed control program. Each season, we apply a season-specific fertilizer and weed control product. For example, our spring fertilization regimen involves the application of both a spring fertilizer and a broadleaf weed control product. Prior to our spring application, we also apply a pre-emergent herbicide and fertilizer to inhibit the growth of invasive weeds like crabgrass. Later in the year, we apply fall and winter fertilizers and a fall broadleaf weed control product to provide year-round protection.
