Blog Seasonal Lawn Care Tips from P.J.E. Lawn Care Experts Apr 05, 2024

Greetings from P.J.E. Lawn Care & Landscaping! As the seasons change, it's important to adjust your lawn care routine to ensure a healthy and vibrant lawn all year round. Our team of experts has put together some seasonal lawn care tips to help you maintain a beautiful landscape throughout the year.

Spring: - Spring is a crucial time for lawn care as grass begins to grow and flower beds need attention. Start by aerating and dethatching your lawn to allow for better water and nutrient penetration. Consider overseeding any bare patches to promote a thick, lush lawn. - It's also essential to fertilize your lawn in the spring to provide it with the nutrients it needs to thrive. Choose a high-quality, slow-release fertilizer to avoid burning your grass. - Finally, don't forget to clean up any debris left over from winter and tidy up your garden beds to prepare for the growing season.

Summer: - In the summertime, proper watering is key to maintaining a healthy lawn. Water deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth and avoid shallow roots that are more susceptible to drought. - Be sure to mow your lawn regularly but avoid cutting it too short, as longer grass blades help shade the soil and retain moisture. Keep your mower blades sharp to prevent damage to the grass. - Monitor for pests and diseases in your lawn and treat them promptly to prevent widespread damage. Consider applying a summer fertilizer to keep your grass green and healthy.

Fall: - Fall is the ideal time for lawn maintenance, as the cooler temperatures promote root growth and recovery. Begin by aerating and seeding your lawn to repair any summer damage and encourage new growth. - Rake up fallen leaves and debris to prevent suffocation of the grass and reduce the risk of disease. Consider applying a fall fertilizer with high phosphorus content to nourish your lawn for the winter months. - Finally, continue mowing your lawn until it stops growing, gradually reducing the height of the grass as winter approaches.

Winter: - While your lawn may be dormant in the winter, it still requires some care to ensure its health in the spring. Avoid walking on frozen grass to prevent damage and consider applying a winter fertilizer to provide nutrients for the upcoming growing season. - Keep an eye out for signs of snow mold or other winter lawn diseases and treat them as needed. Consider hiring a professional lawn care service to help with winter maintenance and preparation for the spring.
