Landscaping Tips: Do You Know What NOT to Do for Spring?
Many lawn care experts publish long to-do lists to help homeowners prepare their yard for spring. Instead of drowning in a huge list of tasks, focus on key actions to avoid and save your lawn from an array of ailments.
- 1. Ignore Outdoor Debris. During spring, your lawn will begin growing rapidly. Make sure it has the space and exposure to do so by clearing debris like leaves, dead plants or matted grass from your lawn. Raking is an important step towards preparing your lawn for a successful growing season.
- 2. Forget the Pre-Emergent. Springtime weather helps your grass grow, but it helps pesky weeds flourish as well! Pre-emergent prevents weed seeds from germinating, which means it’s an essential tool for keeping your yard healthy and beautiful. If you forget to treat your lawn now, you’ll be fighting off weeds for months to come.
- 3. Scalp Your Lawn. When grass starts growing quickly, some homeowners are tempted to scalp their lawns, but this is a big mistake. Scalping your grass will inevitably damage the root system and hinder growth in the future.
- 4. Use Harsh Chemicals. Weeds and pests in your yard can be extremely frustrating. You may think that strong chemicals will simply eradicate your problems more quickly than other options, but they can actually do a lot of damage to your lawn and the environment. Opt for organic, eco-friendly options that will address the problem and protect your grass at the same time.
- 5. Overwater Your Lawn. Springtime in Texas doesn’t always mean an abundance of rain. You’ll probably have to use your sprinkler system this season, but remember that more water doesn’t equal healthier grass! Overwatering your grass can lead to a shallow root system and a vicious cycle of grass that starts to need watering every single day. Generally, watering once a week is recommended. Check with our landscape specialists to determine what schedule will work best for your yard.
