Spring Lawn Care Check List

The official first day of spring is just a week or so away, and we are already beginning to see signs of the season. Much of what makes a successful lawn for the warmer months, is preparation. Simply Green Lawn Care is dedicated to ensuring your lawn looks its best, and has listed these questions to ask yourself before spring arrives.

Spring preparation checklist:

Spring Dog

  1. Have you cleaned up your yard? Winter is a messy season; leaves have fallen, sticks and debris are probably in your yard. Make sure to rid your yard off all of the leftovers from winter so as not to damage your spring lawn.
  2. Have you given your lawn its initial cut? It is good to get started cutting your lawn as early as the weather permits. Set your blades a little lower, and this will cut out the dead parts of your grass, and allow for more sunlight to reach the bottom of the blades.
  3. How is your equipment? Check your lawn care equipment to make sure everything is in working order. Is your mower running properly? Are your blades sharp? Check everything so you don’t have to wait to get started!
  4. Pre-emergent? It is a good idea to treat your lawn with pre-emergent after that first cut. This will help in preventing crab grass from sprouting.
  5. Have you fertilized your lawn? This is something else you should do after that first cut. Feed your lawn with fertilizer, for the best results.

Answer all of these questions, sit back and watch your yard flourish! Preparation is key when pursuing a lush green lawn.

Have used Simply Green for over a year now for weed control & fertilization. Their service & products have helped improve the appearance & health of my grass in this short time. Taffari has been the technician the last few visits and he is great - super knowledgeable & able to answer my questions. On the last visit Taffari had the service manager reach out on a concern and it was addressed & resolved the same day.
