Now that the new year is finally here, it’s time to set your goals for 2020. One of the top goals this year should be to focus on your lawn. Getting a greener, healthier lawn in 2020 is easier than you might think. Here are a few of the top tips to help make your lawn healthier and more beautiful this year.
Some of the most devastating lawn-damaging pests hide below the soil and wreak havoc on your grass roots. Grubs cause a lot of damage to lawns all over Michigan. These pests are the larval stage of June beetles, Japanese beetles, and European chafers. These C-shaped white grubs live in the soil where they feast on grass roots. Damage can be devastating and can happen quickly, so it’s important to identify grub damage right away.
Not only do grubs damage the roots of your grass, but the predators that eat grubs will cause a lot of damage too. Skunks, moles, and birds will often tear up a grub infested lawn in search of a tasty treat. The best way to control grubs is with a well-timed preventative. GrubPro Control, from Custom Personalized Lawn Care, is a granular treatment for grubs. It is applied between June and August and is guaranteed to work for one full year.
Investing in a lawn care program is one of the best things you can do for your lawn. A lawn care program from Custom Personalized Lawn Care is sure to give your lawn everything it needs to grow strong and stay healthy.
Controlling the weeds in your yard is one of the best ways to get a healthier lawn in 2020. Weeds compete with the grass in your yard as they grow. They grow much faster than grass does, quickly crowding out your turf. As weeds horde the sunlight, nutrients, and water that your grass needs, the turf health suffers. Tough weed control is essential to give your lawn the best shot at a healthy year.
A weed control and fertilization treatment plan from Custom Personalized Lawn Care is everything you need. Depending on which plan you choose, you’ll be getting 3, 5, or 7 treatments per year. With pre-emergent applications in the spring, post-emergent in the summer, and broadleaf weed control in the fall, your lawn will have protection from weeds all year long.
Making sure your grass is properly fertilized is another important way to get a healthier lawn in 2020. In order for your grass to stay healthy, it needs to be fed the right nutrients. Getting your lawn on a consistent fertilization schedule will help you start to see results quickly.
Because grass has different needs depending on the season, it’s important to apply the right fertilizer at the right time. Your grass will need different nutrients in the spring, summer, and fall. With the LawnPro program from Custom Personalized Lawn Care, you can rest easy knowing that your lawn is getting exactly what it needs. Our 7 unique applications throughout the year are designed to give your lawn exactly what it needs. With a professional lawn care program, you won’t have to guess which fertilizers to use or when to apply them.
The final service to invest in to get a healthier lawn in 2020 is core aeration. Aerating your lawn once a year is a great way to rejuvenate your grass after a year of heavy use. This service alleviates soil compaction, reduces thatch buildup, and gives your grass roots easier access to nutrients and water.
Core aeration works by removing small cores of compacted soil from your lawn and redistributing them across the surface. On the surface, the cores break down, giving your lawn a little boost of nutrients and helping your microbe activity. In the end, your grass roots will have more space to grow and easier access to water and nutrients. As a result, your lawn will become stronger and healthier. Because our Michigan lawns are made up of cool-season grasses, the best time to perform core aeration is in the late summer or early fall.
Now is the best time to start preparing your lawn care plan for the year. If you want to get a healthier lawn in 2020, then it’s time to call Custom Personalized Lawn Care. Our LawnPro lawn care program offers 7 treatments throughout the year. You’ll also be able to get 50% off your GrubPro Control application and your core aeration service if you sign up.
