The lush lawn of your spring-loving dreams is just a few steps away.
Even if your lawn is made up of weeds more than actual grass, you can turn it around with some basic spring maintenance. Try these five tips to get your lawn ready before the weather warms up and the grass (and weeds) leave you in the dust.
Proper mowing, irrigation and feeding practices are the best possible weed prevention, but established weed populations require drastic measures.
Use a pre-emergent herbicide to stop warm-season weeds before they sprout. And even a weed-free lawn can easily be undone by nearby weeds and their traveling seeds, so remove any weeds in the garden now so they don’t find their way into your lawn.
If your lawn has bare spots, fill them in now with sod or seed so weeds don’t sprout and get a foothold.
