Here in Michigan, it’s a constant battle against the forces of nature to keep your lawn looking its best. Pests, weeds, and other factors are constantly at work trying to destroy your lawn. This spring, take proactive measures against these forces and take back control of your yard. Follow these spring lawn maintenance tips to help you make your Michigan lawn a healthy and vibrant lawn.
Here in Michigan we are very familiar with grubs and the damage they can do. These little white worms are the larvae of June bugs. As they grow, they feed on the tender roots of your grass, causing it to turn yellow and die. Grubs are also a problem because they attract animals like moles, skunks, and birds that will dig up your lawn in search of these tasty worms. The key to effective grub control is to act early when you notice the signs and contact the professionals before it gets out of hand.
Weed control is one of the most important factors in spring lawn maintenance and achieving a beautiful yard. Nobody wants to look at a bunch of ugly crabgrass in their yard, including you.
Pre-emergent control: Applied in the spring, pre-emergent herbicides work by forming a protective barrier over your yard that prevents weed seeds from germinating.
Spot Spray: As the seasons progress, keep weeds under control by targeting them with herbicide sprays.
Keep Your Grass Healthy: By following the above steps and in combination with proper fertilization and watering practices, your grass will become thick and healthy. The thick grass will prevent sunlight from reaching dormant seeds in your soil and will not germinate.
Of course, when you order lawn service from Custom Personalized Lawn Care we provide all three services at an unbeatable price.
Keeping your grass healthy is key to effective weed control. The best time to fertilize is when temperature reach at least 50 degrees.
