Lawn care services need to begin in April or as soon as the snow disappears for the year, and should continue into October to create a healthy foundation for the following year. This process allows you to relax and enjoy your beautiful, healthy lawn, whether it is grilling an outdoor meal for friends and family, playing catch with your kids or just catching some rays.
What is a Healthy Lawn?
A healthy lawn will have: the correct 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.
The more weeds a lawn has, the less room there is for your lawn to grow. Weeds spreading across your landscaping can do a lot of damage if they aren’t treated quickly. When it comes to controlling weeds, different types are a nuisance in different areas of the country. This is the reason we use lawn care products specifically created for ValleyGreen Companies and our Central Minnesota customers.
Lawn health also depends on having the correct amount of nutrients absorbed by the grass’ roots from the soil. The purpose of fertilizing a lawn is to make sure these necessary nutrients are making their way to your lawn in the required amounts and at the proper times to achieve the green, lush look and feel you desire.
