BLOG The Ultimate Guide to Seasonal Lawn Care: Insights from Norvell's Turf Management, Inc. Jul 08, 2024

As the seasons change, it's important to adjust your lawn care routine accordingly to ensure a healthy and vibrant yard all year round. In this ultimate guide to seasonal lawn care, Norvell's Turf Management, Inc. will provide you with valuable insights and tips to help you maintain your lawn throughout the year.

Spring In the spring, your lawn is waking up from its winter dormancy and starting to grow again. This is the perfect time to give your lawn a good spring cleaning. Start by raking up any leaves, branches, and other debris that have accumulated over the winter. It's also a good idea to aerate your lawn to promote healthy root growth and allow water and nutrients to penetrate the soil. Fertilizing in the spring can also help give your lawn the nutrients it needs to thrive.

Summer Summer can be tough on your lawn, with hot temperatures and dry conditions putting stress on your grass. To keep your lawn looking its best during the summer months, be sure to water it deeply and infrequently, preferably in the early morning or late evening to minimize evaporation. Regular mowing is also important, but be sure not to cut your grass too short, as this can cause stress and make it more vulnerable to pests and diseases. Consider applying a summer fertilizer to help your lawn maintain its health and color.

Fall As the temperatures begin to cool down in the fall, it's time to start preparing your lawn for the winter months ahead. Continue to mow your lawn regularly, but gradually lower the blade height as the season progresses. This will help prevent the grass from matting down under winter snow. Fall is also a great time to overseed your lawn to fill in any bare patches and improve its overall thickness. Don't forget to aerate and fertilize in the fall as well to give your lawn a head start on next year's growth.

Winter While your lawn may be dormant during the winter months, there are still steps you can take to protect it and ensure it bounces back strong in the spring. Avoid walking on your lawn when it's frozen, as this can cause damage to the grass blades. Keep an eye out for any signs of snow mold or other issues, and address them promptly. Remember to keep your lawn clear of debris, such as branches and leaves, to prevent mold and disease from taking hold.
