Come springtime it’s no surprise that your landscape will need some work. After the long winter months and buildup of snow everything from your grass to your gardens are brown and appear to be lifeless. However, with some work your backyard can be transformed back into that beautiful landscape it once was. Here’s a spring lawn care check-list:
While not always the most fun job, it’s an absolute must once the warm weather hits. By getting rid of weeds you’re enhancing the health and vitality of your yard. Additionally, when it comes to curb appeal, nothing looks better than a yard free of weeds. Weeds can pop up almost anywhere from your flower beds to your lawn so make sure to uproot them all. At Jaccarino Builders in Westport, CT, we can help you tackle those weeds and get your lawn looking its best.
Another important step in the revival process, mulching will help just about any plant grow more successfully. The extra nutrients boost roost and initiate good growing power so that you can get the most from the flowers, trees, fruits and vegetables that you choose to plant. We firmly believe that the best choice you can make for your plants is selecting an organic and natural mulch free from any chemicals or other pesticides that could be harmful to your family and the environment.
- Lawn Aerating
After months of sitting under heavy, wet snow it’s likely that your soil is compacted. Compacted soil prevents the roots of your grass from getting air, which is why many homeowners choose to have their lawn aerated. The aeration process allows the soil to have more airflow, helping grass and plants receive more oxygen.
- Seeding & Fertilizing
Your lawn can be the trickiest piece of your landscape to get back to its thick green state. First all of the thatch, the dead blades of grass, should be removed by raking. Areas that are thin or have died will need to be seeded to reinvigorate the damaged area. At Jaccarino Builders we not only offer home remodeling services, but we can also provide the landscaping you need to promote a healthier lawn. We also recommend that seeding and fertilizing be completed early in the spring season to allow for enough time for the grass to grow.
