There’s still a good chance to grow bright green grass this Spring

It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally that time of year for Spring cleaning and taking care of the yard.

Since temperatures still drop down to the 30-degree range, it’s still a little bit early for watering. But, now is the perfect time for raking, aerating, and preparing your yard space for warmer temperatures.

It’s a good time for grass seeding as well as dry or wet fertilizer, and sprinkler installation if you need it.

When you get out to cut your grass, be sure to leave three inches of length now and throughout the summer.

Although the grass may look discouraging now, there’s plenty of time to get that pretty green color, and local landscaper Craig Geyer with Busy Times Yard Maintenance said a trick of the trade is, “high nitrogen fertilizer for everybody in the Spring. It’ll boost it up, dry or liquid, but a lot of people will do both sometimes. You could put liquid on there then come back and put the dry on to get it nice and bright green.”

Geyer said he’s about three weeks lake when it comes to the anticipated busy season, thanks to the late Spring, but this weeks temperatures should put many companies back in full swing.
