With the spring season quickly approaching in Kentucky, it’s time to start thinking about what your lawn and landscape beds need to look their best. Winter can be harsh on lawns and landscaping, but with the right services, you will be able to restore your property to its former glory in no time! Some of the most important services that should be at the top of your lawn and landscaping checklist are: fertilization, which restores vital nutrients to your grass; pre-emergent weed control and preventative grub control, which stop weeds and grubs from taking up residence in your grass; lawn mowing and plant trimming which keep your property looking well-manicured; mulch replenishment to provide protection for your plants; and a spring cleanup which will keep your lawn free from unsightly debris. Keep reading to learn more about why each of these services is crucial for keeping your lawn and yard in tip-top shape this spring.
Fertilization will provide your lawn with vital nutrients that will help it flourish.
It’s important to fertilize your lawn in the spring because many of its essential nutrients were likely used up during the winter to keep the grass alive. Replenishing these nutrients will promote growth as the new growing season gets underway and give your lawn a rich, green color!
Fertilizers are rich in essential nutrients—such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium—that will help your lawn thrive!
Pre-emergent weed control will help prevent weeds from sprouting on your lawn.
Pre-emergent weed control is a lawn care service that prevents weeds from sprouting on your lawn. This service involves applying an herbicide to the surface of the soil, where it creates a barrier that weeds can't penetrate!
Preventative grub control will keep grubs from damaging your grass!
Preventative grub control is a lawn care service typically applied in late spring that prevents grubs from populating your lawn. Lawn grubs are the larvae of several species of beetles that feed on the roots of grass. If grubs are able to get a foothold in your lawn, they can damage your grass, so you'll want to invest in a preventative treatment to stop them!
Schedule a lawn mowing service to keep your lawn looking its best.
Lawn mowing is an essential aspect of lawn care that should be done starting in April and completed regularly throughout spring, summer, and into fall. Regular mowing is important because it will keep your lawn looking its best throughout the growing season!
Plant trimming will keep your plants looking neat and manicured.
Plant trimming can enhance the appearance of your landscape by maintaining the shape of plants or trees and removing overgrown branches. By having your plants trimmed regularly, you can keep them looking neat and well-manicured throughout the year!
Start the spring season off right by scheduling a spring cleanup!
A spring cleanup service can help get your property to start the spring season on the right foot. This typically entails removing leaves, branches, and other debris from your lawn and landscape beds. Some companies will also edge your landscape beds so your property looks nice and tidy.
Replenish the mulch in your landscape beds!
If it’s been a year or more since you’ve had new mulch put down, it’s time for a replenishment. By adding mulch to your landscape beds in the spring, you can enhance their beauty and provide health benefits to your plants!
