With spring just around the corner it is a good time to start thinking about your lawn. Although snow is still on the ground, a few simple steps and a little care in the coming months can save a lot of time and money in the year to come. “After fall, there is no more important time to fertilize your lawn than in the spring,” said Matt Nihranz, owner of Fertilizer Plus in Warren. “A properly applied fertilizer containing a pre-emergent herbicide will not only bagging your clippings you are removing necessary beneficial nutrients. “When cutting provide a layer of protection against crabgrass later in the year, it also promotes greening, thickening, and growth in turf which helps prevent the germination of many weeds.” Proper mowing is a key contributor to a beautiful lawn along with a well-timed spring feeding and adequate watering. While bagging your lawn is common, it is unnecessary and even damaging after the first cutting. By your grass, the mower should be set at the highest setting and your clippings should be mulched back into the turf,” advised Nihranz. By increasing mowing height and mulching clippings your lawn will require less fertilizer, water, and be better able to reduce weed germination. These simple steps, combined with the knowledge and keen eye of a turf professional, will produce a lush, healthy and beautiful lawn for the upcoming season.
