It’s National Lawn Care Month

Did you know April is National Lawn Care Month, recognized by National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP)? Now more than ever, it’s important to remind the public the importance of proper maintenance to maximize your property’s investment. Your landscape will determine the first impression when customers, clients and tenants arrive at your location.


What Makes Up Good Lawn Care?

Although regular scheduled mowings are important throughout the season, it isn’t enough to keep your lawn healthy. Spring cleaning, typically preformed in April and the beginning of May, should be the first service scheduled to bring your lawn back to life after the hard winter weather. A typical spring cleaning should include:

  • Removal of leaves, sticks and other landscape debris such as gravel and asphalt from all turf areas and landscape beds.
  • Cut back perennials any ornamental grasses.
  • Deep bed edging, which is done prior to mulch being installed.
  • Application of pre-emergent herbicide.
  • A fresh layer of mulch which helps retain moisture and impedes weeds from germination.

Landscape spring cleaning prepares the turf and plants for the warm growing season and removes the dinge from the winter. So take the opportunity to enhance the appearance of your property by investing in a thorough spring clean up.
