After the long winter we have had, it will be so nice to get out into the yard and start making your lawn look beautiful. There are a few steps you can do to insure an easy transition from the dull drab winter lawn to the blooming beautiful spring lawn.
First, make sure your lawn is free from fall and winter debris. Pick up fallen leaves, sticks, rocks, and anything else that has accumulated over the long winter. It is also important to clean all landscaped beds and remove any dead plant materials.
Second, if there are places in the turf where snow blowers or snow plows have scraped away the grass, rake out the dirt, seed it, and water it.
Finally, get your lawn mower serviced and have the blades sharpened and ready to go.
These steps will make spring get here a little quicker - I hope.
