Weekend Lawn Quick Tips

By Allyn Paul, filed under Lawn Tips.

The weekend is pretty much here guys… do you have a lawn care plan? So many of you get all hyped up and ready to get going during the weekdays, but, then, when Saturday comes, other things take precedence. I know because I’ve been there. But, now that April is in full swing, I really need you to get out and follow these familiar lawn care quick tips ASAP.

The very first thing I want you to do (besides mowing the lawn of course) is get out and aerate the lawn. You can rent an aeration machine or hire a local lawn care company to do it for you. This is the most important of all steps in my opinion. Aerating breaks up thatch and also loosens soil, allowing everything else you do this year to work a little better.

Seeding the lawn is a pretty important task that can be done in the spring. But, before you get all happy with the seed, make sure you plant the right kind of seed for your lawn and follow these guidelines:

1) Keep the seed moist

2) Make sure seed is in contact with soil

3) Ensure night time temperatures are above 50 degrees consistently

If you plan to throw down grass seed, think about whether your lawn needs lime. You should be prepared to throw down some starter fertilizer as well. If you’re unfamiliar with what that means, check out this article about fertilizer nutrients.

In summary, these three tasks are in line for you this weekend:

1) aerate the lawn

2) fertilize the lawn

3) overseed the lawn

How simple is that?
