March is here and according to a certain groundhog, there will be a early spring. This means that Utah lawn care will be starting in full swing before you know it. Are you ready?
This is a good month to start mowing the lawn. It will remove the brown tips and help your lawn to grow strong and healthy. Setting your mower to the second lowest setting for the first mow of the season will help remove more of the dead grass. After that, you should return your mower to the second highest setting when you cut your grass.
Another spring task that should be done is fertilizing. After you remove the dead grass, fertilizing will replenish vital nutrients that is needed after a long, cold winter. And when was the last time you aerated your lawn. If it has been a few years you may want to consider doing it now.
Utah lawn care in March doesn’t always include watering your grass, but it may be necessary. If the dirt is dry and hard, a thorough watering towards the end of the month will help repair your lawn and prevent the grass from drying out.
As spring progresses towards summer your Utah lawn care to-do list will lengthen. In the meantime, these few tips will help make sure your grass is green and healthy as you start to enjoy the warmer weather.
