With the approach of summer, many of us will be spending more time in our yards, so it is important to use spring as an opportunity to get our lawns ready to go!
If your yard is already well-maintained, all that you will need to do is give it a light raking once on a dry day. A common problem is uneven ground since low spots cause poor drainage and high spots are often cut too close by the lawn mower. Now is a great time to take a shovel, and cut off some of the higher spots and fill in the lower
Once your lawn is cleaned, you may need to reseed parts of your yard. This will help your yard look it’s absolute best! As your grass becomes established, you can encourage its growth and discourage weeds by applying a combination of fertilizers and herbicides.
Mowing your yard depends on the type of grass you have. Here are some common types with the heights they should reach:
Common bermudagrass: 1-2 inches (2.5-5 centimeters)
Fescue: 2-3.5 inches (5-9 centimeters)
Kentucky bluegrass: 2-3.5 inches (5-9 centimeters)
St. Augustine: 2-4 inches (5-10 centimeters)
Zoysia: 0.5-1.5 inches (1-4 centimeters)
