Preparing Your Lawn for Spring: Tips for Beginners

As warmer weather approaches, many are eager to get outside to make sure their lawn is prepped and ready. Not sure where to start? Below are some easy, simple tips you can follow to ensure your lawn and landscape are ready for spring!

Wait Until the Time is Right

Starting to prep your lawn too soon could be a big mistake. In Canada, timing is everything! Wait until the snow has melted, the ground has thawed, and temperatures are above freezing. For many provinces, this means late March or early April.

Assess Your Lawn

After the long winter months, be sure to assess your lawn or landscape for damage. The conditions of winter can wreak havoc on your lawn. Look for any signs of dead grass or snow mold, and take the steps necessary to correct them. Feel like you need a professional opinion? Contact us today!

Rake and Clean

Dead leaves, grass clippings and other debris can build up on your lawn during the winter months. If you see any of these on your lawn, it’s important to rake them up. This can improve air circulation and prevent pests and disease. Check out our cleanup packages based on the size of your lawn and the services required.

Apply Fertilizer as Needed

Spring is a great time to fertilize. Fertilizer helps to dissipate salt and encourages your grass and trees to grow. Before applying, be sure it’s warm enough to stick and it matches the climate of your province. We offer deep-root tree fertilization services for homes and businesses in Calgary. This process ensures your trees get the nutrients they need to keep them healthy and beautiful for years to come.
