Our Spring Cleaning Checklist
We like to ease into cleaning up the yard by waiting until the soil dries out and the heavy snowfall has retreated. We believe to gently moving into the spring tasks!
We believe in getting a jump on pre-emergent weed control. The families that use our Gerbert Organic Lawn Care know we have ways to get to the weeds before they have a chance to grow.
Grass Seed and Planting the Beds
We like to fill in the bare spots and review the plan we had with you from last year. Then we like to fill in the bare spots, discuss new grasses based on your activity and see about the beds. Making the soil just right for the spring flowers is our goal!
The type of grass you have also determines how Gerbert Organics works for you and when ‘fertilizing’ is needed. Click to fill out the form to hear more about how an organic lawn could be beneficial to you and your environment.
Great Time to Test the Soil
We think we can all use some supplements in one form or another! Your lawn may have acidic soil in one location and an area that needs a special treatment in a separate location. Look to us to walk the property with you to determine the next best steps.
Dethatch, Aerate, and Mow
Late spring is when the real lawn growth begins. Whatever we can do now to get the lawn in its best shape the better.
Some insects are our friends in the spring, churning up the soil and we know with proper care the ones that cause damage can be kept at bay if we start early in the spring to address any issue. We think about grubs, fire ants, and mole crickets and like to stay ahead of their breeding cycles. Whatever we do now will make it easier to control them in the later summer months.
A Word on Irrigation
We are all under mandatory lawn watering restrictions. We are opening up everyone’s systems now that the fear of frost is behind us. We have a blog post which will keep you up-to-date on all the news about the drought in our area.
