Lawn Care Tips: Your Best Lawn Starts with Early Spring Lawn Care Preparation
Give your grass the best chance of success by tending to it early. Start by clearing debris left behind from Winter such as leaves, sticks and pet messes. Depending on the part of the country you live in, now may be the time to seed bare spots in your lawn.
Stop Crabgrass and Weeds Before They Start
According to Scotts®, one of the most recognized names in lawn care products, crabgrass or weed preventer should be applied in early spring if they have been a problem in the past. Keep in mind that if you need a weed or crabgrass preventer, you won’t be able to seed for bare spots.
Feed and Seed
It’s important to know what types of grasses thrive in your general climate region. In the north, cool-season grasses such as fescues and Kentucky Bluegrass are popular choices whereas zoysia, St. Augustinegrass and bahiagrass are common warm-season choices. But every yard is unique so consider the amount of sunlight and water your yard receives. Learn more about seeding new and existing lawns at Lowes.com.
