Its April in the Washington DC Metro area, its time to get out there and get your home lawns prepared for the long and hot summer. Here are some helpful lawn tips to ensure your lawn and garden stay in top shape for warm months ahead;
1.) Aerate your lawn regularly to break up compact soil, thus enabling oxygen, water & nutrients to penetrate deeper for healthly roots. Holes should be punched 3 inches deep.
2.) Water infrequently but longer period of time for better root growth. The best time to water is before sunrise, less wind.
3.) Water evenly -Brown spots can occur where water is not disbursed evenly.
4.) Fertilze at different times throughout the year.
5.) Keep grass relatively high to ensure your grass roots are protected.
