What’s Happening: It’s great to be back after another long, cold winter! There’s really no need for you to do anything after this service. A little rain or late snow will work the material into the ground over the next few weeks.
Most lawns will need a little cleaning after the winter. Remove any leaves and branches that are still lying around. Although this material is pretty heavy and hard to move once it’s on the lawn, it’s better to wait a few days (or until we get some rain or snow) after this service to do any hard raking or blowing.
Cut the grass as soon as it needs it. Don’t wait until it gets too long. Try not to cut more than 1/3 of the grass blade. Grass plants are storing energy in the blade right now and cutting too much off will turn the lawn yellow. Normally, you should keep the mower at around 3 inches or raise it up if the grass is too long.
We will do most seeding
in the Late Spring when ground temperatures are higher. Lawns with Crabgrass problems can’t be seeded for a few weeks after this service due to the application of the Pre-emergent Crabgrass control.
WEED CONTROL: Since we don’t use any chemicals that hang around in your lawn, we can only get rid of the weeds that are up now. Most weeds will appear later in the spring and we’ll get them then. If you see too many weeds between the first and second service - just let us know!
