Tips for Spring Lawn Care Treatment

Spring Lawn Care Tip #1: Raking
Raking will be your first task of spring lawn care. As you survey your lawn in spring, see if there are any matted patches, in which the grass blades are all stuck together. This can be caused by a disease known as "snow mold." New grass may have difficulty penetrating these matted patches. But a light raking will be sufficient to solve this problem.
Spring Lawn Care Tip #2: Check for Compaction
If your lawn is subjected to high levels of traffic year after year, it may eventually start to show signs of decline. This is because there is no air that can flow through the soil and allow the roots to breathe. In such cases, your lawn is probably suffering from over compaction.

Spring Lawn Care Tip #3: Over-seeding
If you are noticing bare spots and overly dry areas on your lawn, it may be a good idea to over-seed. Although over-seeding is highly recommended in the fall season, spring seeding can be implemented if really needed.
Spring Lawn Care Tip #4: Fertilizing using the right lawn care treatment
It is important to fertilize in the Spring season if you didn’t already in the Fall. Keep in mind this time of year is when all the weeds appear and pollinate from neighboring lawns, so it’s key to buy the right type of treatment.
