Blog Seasonal Lawn Maintenance: Keeping Your Grass Green with Lamb's Lawn Service & Landscaping Nov 24, 2023

When the seasons change, so should your lawn maintenance routine. At Lamb's Lawn Service & Landscaping, we understand the ebb and flow of the year and how it impacts your green space. A verdant, healthy lawn doesn't just enhance curb appeal—it also creates a space for family activities and relaxation. To keep your grass radiantly green throughout the year, a strategic seasonal approach to lawn care is essential.

**Spring into Action**

As the world awakens in spring, it's time to give your lawn the boost it needs after its winter dormancy. At Lamb's Lawn Service & Landscaping, we recommend a comprehensive spring cleanup. We start by raking deeply to remove dead grass and debris, a process that aids in preventing thatch build-up and diseases.

Next, we focus on aeration, creating small holes in the soil to allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate grass roots—key to a healthy and robust lawn. We supplement this with a springtime fertilizer rich in nitrogen to promote a burst of growth, followed by pre-emergent herbicides to prevent crabgrass and other pesky weeds from getting a foothold.

**Summer Vigilance: Beat the Heat**

As temperatures rise and rain may become scarce, your lawn requires special attention. We at Lamb's Lawn Service & Landscaping offer tailored watering schedules to keep your lawn hydrated without overwatering, which could lead to fungal growth. Early morning watering is best as it reduces evaporation and bolsters grass for the day's heat.

Regular mowing also plays a crucial role. A longer grass blade is healthier in summer as they shade the soil and root system, reducing water loss. We're committed to keeping your grass at its ideal height and mowing consistently with sharp blades that give a clean cut and minimize stress on the grass.

During the summer months, our technicians also watch for signs of stress and pests so that we can act swiftly. A routine spot treatment for pests and spot-aerating compacted areas can help your lawn breathe easy even in the sultriest of weather.

**Awe-inspiring Autumn Care**

Fall is the time to prepare your lawn for the cold months ahead. We at Lamb's Lawn Service & Landscaping advocate for a second round of aeration and over-seeding. Over-seeding with cold-tolerant grass varieties can fill in bare spots and create a denser turf, which discourages weeds come spring.

Further, this is the season for a balanced fertilizer to strengthen roots and promote nutrient storage for winter. Also, keeping leaves off the lawn to prevent moisture and mold problems is a must, which is why our team provides diligent leaf removal services as part of our fall lawn care protocol.

**Winter Wisdom**

While your lawn is resting through the winter, we're still thinking ahead. We minimize foot traffic on frozen grass to prevent damage and ensure a quicker rebound in the spring. We project ahead by scheduling our clients for the next season's crucial first treatments, ensuring they're top of the list when the cycle begins anew.

With Lamb's Lawn Service & Landscaping, each season blends into a year-round care plan designed to maintain the persistent vibrancy of your grass. From the awakening of spring, through the trials of summer, into the preparatory work of autumn, and the quiet of winter, we're always there, ensuring that keeping your grass green is seamlessly taken care of season by season. Your lawn is not just a patch of grass—it's a commitment to home and heart, and we take that commitment seriously. Choose Lamb's Lawn Service & Landscaping, and watch as your lawn thrives all year round.
