What to do to your Lawn in April & May!

“April & May are the best months to Aerate and a good time to put down a Spring Fertilizer.  If you activate your sprinkler system this time of year you are safe from things freezing in ground, however your backflow preventer could freeze up if temperatures fall below 32 degrees for an extended period of time.  To prevent this from happening and to enjoy the ease of using your system, just wrap the pipes on the side of the house with installation or even use a simple blanket and cover with a plastic bag to keep the cold edge off.  It is also a great time to Power Rake before your turf gets too green…call us to see if you could still benefit from a power rake & or fertilization.  Due to the extreme dry winter we have had, we are finding extreme cases of mites & spiders in turf areas.  If you have patches of brown that are not greening up or brown patches that are getting larger…you could possibly have spider mites eating away at your turf…Call us for an evaluation.”
