on May 16, 2013 by TruGreenAs a homeowner, you understand how lawn maintenance can be a full-time job. After all, between the mowing and the watering, how much time do you really have left to dedicate to your lawn? That's the biggest issue. Sure, you can find someone to mow, and you can install a sprinkler system, but that's not enough to achieve a lawn you’ll love.
year-round lawn maintenance tips
Effective lawn maintenance includes a set fertilization schedule, a schedule best understood by someone with the knowledge and expertise to perform that service. A thorough fertilization plan – one that involves 6-8 treatments at regularly scheduled intervals –will help ensure your lawn's protection throughout the year.
Spring is the time to watch for and treat crabgrass and other weeds, whereas late spring/early summer is a good time to look out for lawn damaging insects and invasive pests. In the summer, the right nutrients will help your lawn withstand the effects of drought season. And in the fall, the right fertilizers will help with root growth as well as to maintain the hardiness of the lawn, while pre-emergent products could prevent winter weeds.
