Get More Out of Your Sod with a Spring Lawn Treatment Schedule

Bayside Sod’s Guide to Caring for Your Lawn This Spring
Determine Your Soil Type
Start by assessing your soil type. Different soil types require other treatments to provide an ideal environment for grass growth. After determining what kind of soil you have, consult with a local gardening expert or research online to learn what specific treatments are necessary for optimal results.
Fertilize the Proper Amount
The next step is to develop an appropriate fertilization plan. Fertilizing too much or too little can cause problems like weak root growth or excessive weed growth. Aim to fertilize your lawn every six weeks during the spring season with a slow-release fertilizer, and be sure to water it immediately after application for the best results.
Aerate Your Soil
Spring is also an ideal time to aerate your soil to improve drainage. Aeration helps break up compacted areas and allows air and nutrients to reach deep down into the root zone of the grass. This can reduce the number of weeds that will sprout up later in the year and help maintain that lush green color.
Mow Your Lawn at the Correct Height
Finally, make sure you mow correctly and at proper intervals throughout the spring months. The key is mowing regularly enough so that only one-third of the blade length is cut at each mowing. Doing so will help keep your lawn neat and ensure enough blade length is left to photosynthesize adequately.
With a comprehensive spring lawn treatment plan, you’ll be sure to have a lush, healthy lawn all season long. Follow these steps and enjoy the rewards of your hard work.
