Can you believe that summer is right around the corner? As much as we all love summer, before we jump head-first into it we should be careful not to pass over this important in-between time.
We've moved from the early spring months, marked by a gradual thawing of the soil, new blooms, and animals coming out of their winter slumbers, to late spring and everything it brings with it. The days are getting longer, the temperature is getting warmer, and a transition to the summer is ahead.
While the late spring season is largely overlooked, it is an important time for your lawn. With the warmer soil and increased growth, it's the prime time for weeds to appear. You will also start to see increased insect activity as the eggs laid in early spring start to hatch. Here are the top three things to keep in mind for the late spring season:
- Apply a weed spray. When weeds start to show up in unwanted places, blanket your lawn with a broadleaf weed control spray to eliminate them.
- Keep an eye on your water levels. Lawns can dry out very quickly in late spring and summer, so it is a good idea to monitor the amount of rainfall and to start watering your lawn if it's below 1.5"-2" per week.
- Consider applying a home exterior insect spray. Unwanted pests start appearing during this time, such as ants, spiders, ticks and fleas. You can safely eliminate these pests by applying a spray to help keep these pests from entering your home.
We hope this guide help you to make the most of the remainder of spring and to protect your investment in your lawn.
As a reminder, If you start to see these unwanted pests and want to control the situation, contact us to set up a treatment.
