The best way to market your lawncare service is to use the seasons to your advantage. After the last snows and frosts are gone, in order to ensure you have a lovely lawn for the upcoming summer season you’ll need to perform standard lawncare. Yet, this chore is not as difficult as you may be thinking.
The first thing you must do in springtime to start taking care of your lawn would be to remove any debris that could have built up on it over the winter season. If any creatures crossed the lawn during the past few months the decomposition of animal materials, or putrefaction, may be apparent. You’ll need to remove these and dispose of them. You may even need to remove deal leaves that you missed in the raking during the autumn as well as some grass clippings that rotted over the winter. They may mar the look of the yard later on, if you do not take the time to remove these now.
Weeds also grow fast in springtime. Once you remove the roots you can feel fairly safe that the weeds don’t grow back. Try to find thatch cover. Then this won’t really pose a problem, when it is less than half. However, if you find there are brown spots in the yard, and that there’s a lot of thatch, remove, aerate the soil before you plant new seeds and water it,.
Aeration includes poking holes through the ground at regular intervals to enable the oxygen from the air to reach into the ground. You should aerate the soil all in the lawn to ensure that when you do water it, the roots benefit from the water and that it doesn’t just evaporate on the surface.
In springtime, you do have to water the soil – a lot. It doesn’t matter because most of this water does not go deep into the earth if you’ve had lots of snow or rain. Pros recommend that you add about 5 inches of water to the lawn when you begin preparing the lawn care in spring. This is especially needed if you had to salt some of the paths or driveways or if your lawn is close to the road where salt was applied for deicing purposes during the wintertime. The water functions to desalinate the soil.
Add fertilizer to the ground in small doses. It’s also advisable to do this at regular periods to supplement the nutrients in order to grow the grass needs.
