Highlands NC Homes, Lawn Readiness
Lawn readiness goes hand in hand with Highlands NC homes at this time of year. Spring is here and landscaping is on our minds. After a long winter our lawns need some prepping in order to look their best this summer. Luckily the work is easy, although perhaps a little tedious depending on the size of your yard. Some homeowners in Highlands NC like to take care of these projects themselves while others prefer to hire a landscaper. Regardless, taking the time to refresh your lawn will pay off with one your neighbors will envy later on.
One of the first steps toward rejuvenating your lawn is to rake it. You may have raked your lawn last fall to get rid of the fallen leaves but raking a lawn in spring is different. Raking your lawn now will wake up the grass and get rid of accumulated debris that took hold throughout the winter months. This step is also referred to as de-thatching. Too much thatch (dead grass) on the grass can suffocate it, keeping it from thriving.
Spring is also a great time of year to aerate your lawn. Aerating lawns creates space for the roots to breathe and also makes room for nutrients to make their impact. In addition springtime is the time to feed your lawn the nutrients it needs. You can test the soil’s pH levels which will help you understand what your lawn needs to be its healthiest.
