Lawn care services should begin in April or as soon as the snow disappears for the year, and should continue into October to create a healthy base for the following year. This process allows you to relax and enjoy your healthy looking and feeling lawn, whether it is playing catch, grilling an outdoor meal or just catching some rays.
What is a Healthy Lawn?
A healthy lawn will have: the right color of grass based on its species; some spring-back to it (if you walk through the grass your footsteps should disappear fairly quickly); and an even layer of thatch underneath the blades, serving as insulation to help regulate ground temperature.
How Can I Make My Lawn Healthier?
Lawn care consists of two separate but equally important services: fertilization and weed control.
Lawn health depends on nutrients absorbed by the grass’ roots from the soil. The purpose of fertilizing a lawn is to add the necessary nutrients in the required amounts and at the proper times to achieve the lush, green look and feel you desire.
At the same time, the more weeds a lawn has, the less room there is for your lawn to grow. Weeds spreading throughout your landscaping can do serious damage if they aren’t treated right away. When it comes to controlling weeds, different ones are a nuisance in different parts of the country. That’s why we use lawn care products specially blended just for ValleyGreen Companies and our Central Minnesota customers, unlike some area lawn services.
