As the ice begins to thaw and the cold temperatures start to warm up, the leaves start to go from brown back to green. The plants are blooming, the trees are growing, and the yard begins to come back to life. But when everything is blooming and growing again, just how do you make sure this years lawn is the best ever? Here are a few springtime yard tips from TLC that you can use whether you're a homeowner or interested in landscape design careers.
- Springtime is the perfect time to fertalize your lawn. Because everything is growing, this is the best time to have access to those hard to reach roots.
- Apply pre-emergent weed killer on your lawn to prevent the weeds from forming. Weeds like dandiliions, clovers, and plantains are most common this time of year.
- Now that you'll be mowing your lawn again, keep in mind that setting it on the lowest (shortest) setting possible actually makes it easier for weeds to grow. The best height for grass is between 2.5 and 3.5 inches.
