As we get closer to spring, making the proper preparations can mean the difference between a low-maintenance, manageable lawn and landscape, or a never ending battle all season long. Things you should be thinking about and planning for now are:
1. Weed control for your landscape beds (both pre and post-emerge herbicides and bed cultivation)
2. Dormant trimming for your shrubs and trees
3. Crabgrass control for your turf
Cultivation of your current mulch in your landscape beds is always a good idea midway throughout the winter.
Maintaining a healthy lawn is not just limited to applying adequate amounts of fertilizer and weed control products, but also in the mowing process. Mowing the lawn at the appropriate height and frequency is also an extremely important step in maintaining a thick, healthy turfbed.
The rule of a third is a great management tool in determining the setting of your mower deck. In the spring, turf tends to grow at a much quicker rate as it comes out of dormancy. It is not uncommon to have to mow twice in a seven day interval in order to keep the lawn under control.
