Now, onto your lawn. As your lawn is uncovered, you may notice winter damage from salt used on driveways and walkways. To restore the health of your soil and grass: flush the area to give your lawn a deep watering once the weather warms. If brown spots persist, apply Gypsum and consider adding grass seed to those areas.
Late-April to Early-May is THE ONLY TIME to apply pre-emergent Crabgrass Preventer to your lawn!
Improving an existing lawn: If you’re looking to thicken your lawn, or will be over-seeding an area, here is a season-long program to enhance and enrich your lawn (pounds mentioned covers 1000 sq. ft.):
- Late-April – apply 12lbs of Gypsum and 8 Lbs of 15-15-5
- End of May – apply 5lbs of 15-15-5
- Mid-July – apply 3lbs of 15-15-5
- Mid-to-late September – apply 4lbs Winterizer
Growing and maintaining healthy lawns and landscapes is vital for our environment by filtering storm water run-off and improving water quality, reducing air temperatures, and providing essential habitat for wildlife.
We also provide professional fertilization and lawn care services! Call us at 715-485-3131 or visit our website at balsamlakeprolawn.com to sign up for a fertilization and/or lawn care program that’s right for you!
From all of us at Balsam Lake Pro-Lawn, we look forward to seeing you soon and wish you a WARM and Happy Spring!
