Spring is coming up really soon. Instead of months we are weeks away and it is time to get your lawn Spring ready. What do you do to get your lawn Spring ready in Brentwood, TN?
The obvious choice is to hire us for your Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control Treatments Brentwood, TN.
There are many things you should do at the start of the year to prepare for a great lawn this season in Brentwood, TN.
Alright, Brentwood this is what we will be covering today:
A sharp mower blade will help you cut your lawn much faster but it will also help keep your grass blades from splitting causing damage to them. Sharp blades are crucial to a successful lawn care plan.
When you mow your lawn with dull blades it causes your grass to suffer.
If you use a lawn mowing service be sure to ask your service provider to ensure they have sharpened blades throughout the mowing season.
Watering your lawn is a very important step in a successful lawn each and every season. If you do not have irrigation in your Brentwood, TN home then look into getting one installed. You will thank us later for this advise.
In the Spring you will want to have your backflow put back on and you will also want to test your sprinkler system to ensure everything is working as normal. Look for burst leads so you aren't wasting water, check all of your sprinkler heads to ensure they are sending water properly and just do a zone test to ensure they are all popping up and spraying water to your lawn.
Watering your lawn infrequently and for about an hour a couple times per week will help get those roots going deeper and help your lawn stay full thick and green all summer long.
Leaves, sticks and other debris can cause bare spots in your lawn. When a tree branch rots and sits on your lawn the grass below doesn't get any sunlight which is required for it to be happy and healthy.
Leaves cause mold and disease so be sure to blow them off or mulch them with your mower to keep them from covering your lawn.
Lime treatments are perfect to keep the pH of your soil the proper acidity. Without this your lawn will suffer. We use either lime pellets or other forms of lime to accomplish this. Typically this is done during the Winter for our team so that it has time to break up during the winter. Winter weather really helps this process along.
It is important to get a lime treatment down to keep your pH in range so be sure that you do not skip this application or give us a call to handle it for you.
We all hate dealing with these nuisance pests but unfortunately they are there and we have to prevent them. We flea and tick applications that we can put down for you that will prevent these blood suckers from entering your property and keep them away for several months. Call your sales rep today and get on our flea and tick treatment schedule.
The bread and butter of our services and everyone's favorite part. Fertilizer is a necessary component of a successful Brentwood lawn this Spring and for the entire season.
We spray various fertilizers throughout the year based on needs we determined from your soil test we performed on your lawn (if you are a lawn care client of ours). If you do not use a lawn care fertilization and weed control service then be sure to order a soil test kit for yourself and send it in.
If you are seeding your lawn this Spring you will want to use a starter fertilizer which has absolutely everything you need to get those grass roots pushing through the soil.
This is a crucial step each year if you have a cool season lawn. We typically do this every fall and if you jump on our services in the beginning of the year we will do a Spring seed and aeration but we will do a touch up in the Fall to get you on our Fall schedule for each year.
Aeration allows air water and other nutrients to enter the soil which the roots of your grass benefits from.
Seeding helps thicken up your lawn so that there are no bare spots but it also helps prevent weeds by choking them out. Weeds will not push through a thick turf very often as it needs sunlight to do so. Thick turf helps prevent that most of the time. There is that exception sometimes.
Pre-emergent is something we use to prevent grassy weeds like crabgrass, your favorite :). This application has to be timed right and typically in Brentwood we have to do two and sometimes three pre-emergent applications just in the Spring to ensure no weeds will germinate and to get the best success from this treatment.
If you are doing your own lawn care this year be sure to not skip out on this treatment. It is easily one of the most important applications.
We hope this guide was very helpful to you and that you follow it all season long. If you need help with your lawn give us a call: 615-631-6596
