Keep your lawn, green, plush and weed free with this easy to follow guide. Usually if you live in a seasonal climate, every spring you need to remove all leaves and debris left over from previous fall and winter.
Let your lawn grow 3-4" high prior to the first cut of the season. Only cut the top 1/3 of your grass ( cutting to low is unhealthy and will cause burn out ) Also, cutting your lawn in different directions each time will help with thickening of lawn. Do not bag your clippings each time. The cut-offs break down quickly and add needed Nitrogen into your soil.
In Late Fall, especially if you live in a colder climate, its best to add lime to your lawn. This will help with early greening and keep the weeds to a minimum in the Spring. Follow these steps and you will surely be the envy of all your neighbors.
