Preparing for a better lawn
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.
