With the new year underway, focus on:

Clearing Debris: Remove fallen leaves, branches, and any clutter from your lawn to prevent matting and mold growth.

Irrigation System: Shut off and drain your irrigation system to prevent freezing and damage.

February

Watch for Winter Weeds

Keep an eye out for winter weeds like clover and chickweed. Tasks for this month include:

Weed Control: Spot- treat any winter weeds that pop up to prevent them from spreading.

Fertilization: Apply a winter-appropriate fertilizer to nourish the roots during dormancy.

March

Prune and Prepare for Growth

As March arrives, show your lawn some attention by:

Pruning Trees and Shrubs: Trim overgrown branches to allow more sunlight to reach your lawn.

Aeration: Consider aerating your soil to improve water and nutrient absorption.

April

Early Spring Prep

With the arrival of spring, it’s time to kick- start your lawn’s growth:
