2022 is just around the corner. Is your lawn ready? To have a beautiful yard for the new year, you need to start prepping your care plan now. Not sure where to start? Our lawn maintenance experts are here to share our top tips for creating a lawn care plan that will keep your yard looking healthy all year long.
Tip #1 Set up a schedule for fertilization
One of the most effective measures to add to your lawn care plan is a thought-out fertilization schedule. However, before buying the first fertilizer you see on the market, remember that every lawn is different. Each yard may have a different soil type, grass variation, or sunlight level. Fertilizers contain nutrients like Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium in a plethora of different combinations. Be sure to talk with a quality maintenance specialist about your specific lawn and which fertilizer is right for you.
When planning your lawn fertilization schedule, remember to consider the time of year. For example, spring fertilization is for dormant plants that are waking up in the warmer weather, while summer fertilization is to support the stress brought on by scorching Florida heat and periods of low rainfall. Or instead of worrying about all the little details, you can let our quality maintenance experts at RLC Landscaping take care of the work for you. Our professionals will develop a custom maintenance plan to fit your unique yard needs!
Tip #2 Weed control
Weeds are extremely damaging to your lawn health. They create competition amongst your plants and grass for important resources such as sunlight, nutrients, and water. The result is a lawn that is unhealthy and vulnerable to disease and pests. Plan now to have your lawn care service come out for a preventative pre-emergent treatment in early spring. Pre-emergents keep weeds at bay by preventing overwintering seeds from germinating and sprouting. If done at the proper time, only weed spot treatments should be needed up until early fall.
Tip #3 Invest in a quality irrigation system
Grass is greener when you water it. If you want to achieve a lush, vibrant green lawn, you need to have a well-maintained irrigation system in place. At RLC Landscaping, we handle all types of irrigation services from water resource planning, pump or well service repair, monthly inspections, and so much more!
