Prepping Your Yard For Summer

Summer

As we leave the winter behind and enter into the beautiful springtime, you’re still left with the number the cold weather did on your yard. The most important thing you can do to prepare your yard for the summertime, is to start prepping in the spring. Here are five ways to prepare your yard for summer.

Clear the Area

Start your preparation for a thriving lawn by clearing all of the debris, sticks, weeds and anything else that could’ve ended up in your lawn throughout the winter. It will make it easier for you in the long run because you won’t have to do again when it comes time to cut the grass.

Don’t Allow the Lawn to Dry Out

If the showers are lacking this spring, give your lawn a good watering when you can. Keep it damp, not soaked, for a couple of weeks to allow it to grow. In the event of a drought in your area, avoid watering your lawn at all.

Fertilize

Fertilize your lawn according to the type of grass you have. You’ll want to fertilize about twice a year, before the weather hits its peak seasons. You can also dig a little deeper to figure out when a good time to fertilize your lawn is in your location.

Mow Properly

Mowing your lawn properly in the springtime will make all the difference come summertime. Never cut more than one-third of the height of the grass each time you mow. If you mow more frequently, it will help the roots grow stronger. When the summer approaches you won’t need to mow as frequently, as longer grass helps to protect the soil.

Add Color

Plant some flowers in the front of your home to give it an extra special touch. When the flowers start to bloom, it will be a beautiful and colorful addition to the overall look of your home. Bonus points for choosing flowers that will match your front door.
