Spring Lawn Care & Mowing Tips!
Give your trusty mower a spring makeover. Change the oil, replace the spark plug, and sharpen or replace the blades for a smoother cut.
Set your mower to the right cutting height. Start a bit higher in early spring and gradually lower it as the grass grows.
Bag or Mulch?
Decide whether you want to bag clippings or mulch them back into the lawn. Mulching adds nutrients to your soil!
Mow in different patterns each time for a fun and healthy lawn. Try diagonal, crisscross, or even a checkerboard design.
Use a trimmer or edger to create crisp, clean lines around sidewalks and garden beds. It's like a frame for your lawn.
Timing is Key
Mow when the grass is dry to prevent clumping. Early morning or late afternoon is usually the best time.
Never remove more than one-third of the grass height in a single mowing session. It reduces stress on your lawn.

Keep an eye out for weeds along the edges and remove them promptly. A little effort now prevents bigger issues later.
Don't forget to sharpen your pruning shears or hedge trimmers. Precise cuts help plants thrive.
Trim bushes and shrubs to shape them and encourage healthy growth. They'll look tidy and happy.
Show your lawn some love! Fertilize to promote strong growth and lush green color.
Water deeply but infrequently. It's better to water deeply once a week than lightly every day.
If you have bare spots, overseed in early spring to fill them in and create a thicker lawn.
Keep an eye out for lawn pests, like grubs, and treat as needed. A healthy lawn is less vulnerable.
Relax & Enjoy the Results
After all the hard work, take a moment to relax and enjoy your beautifully manicured lawn.
Invite friends and family over for a picnic or a game of frisbee.
Happy mowing, trimming, & lawn care adventures this Spring!
