Hamilton's Finest Nursery Shares 5 Tips for a Healthy Spring Lawn, Hamilton, Ohio

Your front lawn is one of the most visible parts of your property and a source of pride for you as a homeowner. During warm weather, you want it to thrive and complement your trees, flowers, and the rest of your residential landscaping. The key to having a healthy spring lawn is the meticulous care you put in during the fall as you prepared the soil for winter. However, the experts at Imfeld Nursery in Hamilton, OH, say there are steps you can take now to ensure lush and healthy grass.

5 Spring Lawn Care Tips From Nursery Pros

1. Rake Your Lawn

The first step to a beautiful spring lawn is to rake your yard thoroughly. This will remove clippings that have become compressed and matted as well as loosen clumps in the soil.

2. Level & Aerate the Soil

The freezing and melting that occurs during the winter can cause your soil to become uneven or compacted, which can inhibit grass growth. Use a shovel to shift soil from raised areas to deeper spots to create a more uniform lawn. If your soil feels dense and does not move easily, pass an aerator across it to loosen it.

3. Test the pH

Winter’s frost may have adversely affected your soil, creating an acidic environment. You can purchase an at-home pH test kit from a nursery or gardening store to help you determine the acidity of your soil. Applying lime will neutralize excess acid; ask a landscape maintenance professional to explain the process.

4. Fertilize & Plant Seeds

Nursery Hamilton OHIf you applied fertilizer to your lawn before the first frost, it still should be enriching your soil. However, many homeowners like to fertilize their lawn a second time, especially if they are planting grass.

5. Apply Weed Killer

If weeds are a common problem for you each spring, apply a weed killer to your lawn early in the season. This will prevent the growth of unwanted plants and ensure your lawn has the space and nutrients it needs to grow.
