Florida may be one of the warmer states in the country with less seasonal changes however, when it comes to lawn care there are still specific times of the year that require lawn maintenance. Especially parts of Northern Florida including Jacksonville, Tallahassee, and Gainesville who do see frost during the winter which means there is spring lawn care maintenance to do. In order to help residents of Northern Florida get their lawns looking healthy this spring and summer, here are a few spring lawn care tips from the experts in lawn care at McCall Service.
Frequent mowing on a higher setting is the best way to go when it comes to the health of your grass. This will deter weeds from taking root, keep lawn pests away, and keep your lawn looking sharp. Although this does require you to be out pushing the mower more frequently, your lawn will be much better looking as a result.
As much as you might think you have control of weeds spreading on your lawn, sometimes they are just there to be a nuisance. Many weeds like dandelions have seeds that blow around with the wind. So even if your lawn is weed free today does not mean you are safe from seeds rooting the next day. To keep weeds at bay, make sure to cut off the heads of dandelions so they cannot become seedy puff balls. Also, less frequent irrigation is best as continuous light moisture is what weeds favor to grow and take over lawns.
Fertilizing your lawn in the spring is going to help it remain healthy all year. Your lawn has just been starved of nutrients for most of the winter and now is the time to replenish those nutrients to promote a healthy looking turf. You want to be sure that you are using a high quality fertilizer and one that is suited for your lawn.
