Early Spring Lawn Care

Although the windchill was -15C this morning and there are a few inches of snow on the ground here in New Tecumseth, Spring is here for good!!! Here are some steps you can take now or in the very near future to ensure a healthy lawn

  • Deeply and thoroughly rake your lawn
  • Check for grass compaction - aerate if necessary
  • Test soil for nutrient content and pH levels
  • Add fertilizer, top dressing or lime as necessary
  • Check and service your lawn mower - if you need to replace consider a more environmentally friendly model (two stroke gasoline engines are notorious polluters)
  • Ensure that your first cut is a very light one to reduce damage to existing ground cover

If your lawn is beyond redemption, and you feel that you need to replace it, why don't you consider re-seeding with an environmentally friendly lawn covering?

Here is a post on environmentally friendly lawn solutions
