Spring Lawn Care Tips

Lawn care is a year-round activity.

The most effective spring lawn care programs are those that are combined with a robust fall lawn care program – this will produce a healthy, lush lawn for you to enjoy throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons.

Spring Lawn Care Tip #1: Clean Up and Inspect
Spring cleaning up is almost a necessity to remove any remaining debris from winter snow and winds. It also avoids buildup of thatch, that organic matter beneath the blades of the grass but above the soil that can inhibit healthy growth.
As snow melts and growth resumes, early spring is the best time to inspect your lawn for possible lawn disease. A professional lawn care manager at Lynch Plant Healthcare can survey your landscape to spot any dangers for early lawn disease and to identify the best types of fertilizer, weed control products or other lawn care treatments to ensure a healthy, green lawn throughout the spring and summer. One example of lawn disease which is common in early spring is snow mold. This is a fungus that often appears when snow melts in early spring and is most common in landscapes with early snows over ground that has not had a chance to freeze.

Spring Lawn Care Tip #2: Aerate
Aeration is a process of removing soil cores from your lawn to help improve water, air and nutrient movement in the soil. Aerating your lawn in both fall and spring reduces soil compaction and works to break down thatch. These two conditions make growing grass more difficult, because they impede air and water movement to the soil and work to weaken your lawn’s root system.

Spring Lawn Care Tip #3: Fertilize and Apply Weed Control Treatments
Applying lawn fertilizer is a key element of spring lawn care. By fertilizing your lawn this spring, you will be making an investment in your lawn’s root system that will reap considerable returns. It is important to first understand your spring lawn care needs for lawn fertilizer, lime or early weed control products and then to match them with your lawn care preferences.

Another important component of a spring lawn care program weed control. Quality weed control starts with an inspection of your turf in order to spot unwanted growth early on. The lawn care experts at Lynch Plant Healthcare use a lawn treatment approach that targets only the spots of your lawn that require weed control.

Winter Tree Care Tips

Apply Antidesiccants

Antidesiccants are a waxy substance applied directly to leaves which helps slow the loss of water from plants. We recommend an application to reduce the amount of water being lost through the leaves at times when roots are unable to absorb sufficient water. Without the help of an antidesiccant, leaves can sometimes scorch or a plant could even die.

Winter Lawn Care Tips


The mid-winter thaw, warmer winters, or approaching spring all present exact conditions for lawn diseases and lawn fungus. To reduce your risk, break up large piles of snow. This will improve drainage conditions on your lawn.
Once the snow has cleared, Lynch Plant Healthcare can examine grass plants to check for snow mold and leaf diseases including lawn fungus. If you think you have an active disease on your property, our professional lawn care providers can come out and review your lawn with you to determine the best lawn care program to cure lawn diseases before spring comes.
