Pre­par­ing for a bet­ter lawn

The Telegram (St. John’s) - Home Buyers' Guide - - METRO REGION -

To be­gin at this time of year to have a bet­ter lawn, first clean un­wanted de­bris that may have ac­cu­mu­lated over the win­ter months. Aer­ate and weed your lawn to im­prove wa­ter, air and fer­til­izer up­take. Choose a man­ual weeder that re­moves the en­tire root of in­va­sive weeds, elim­i­nat­ing the need for her­bi­cide use.

Healthy, thick lawns nat­u­rally de­ter weeds and other pests. Choose a nat­u­ral (eco­log­i­cally sen­si­tive) fer­til­izer fer­til­izer that is ideal for plant­ing new lawns or re­pair­ing bare starts to give your lawn a healthy start.

In prepa­ra­tion for the gar­den­ing sea­son, check your equip­ment to en­sure it is in good work­ing con­di­tion. Don't for­get to sharpen the blades on lawn mow­ers and weed­ers. Pur­chase a com­poster and get started on turn­ing house­hold waste into or­ganic fer­til­izer for your lawn and gar­den.
