How to Maintain the Perfect Lawn
It’s almost spring--and that means it’s time to start thinking about all that time you’ll be spending out on your lawn this year! From recreation to relaxation, your grass will be hosting many activities throughout the spring, summer, and fall. But if your lawn isn’t looking its greatest, you may feel unsure about spending so much time on it. If you want to get your lawn looking its best, working with a trusted lawn care professional like Buffalo Lawn & Pest Services is a great way to do it. We have our own lawn maintenance plan created with lawns just like yours in mind. Here’s how we keep your lawn looking great all through the year.
Implement a Regular Fertilization, Weed Control, & Insect Control Schedule
One of the most important things you can do for your grass health is to regularly give it the nutrients it craves. With our program, your lawn receives the following treatments:
- Pre-emergent and Post-emergent Weed Control
- Insect Control
Spring is the perfect time to start lawn care maintenance, as our first treatment is applied in early spring with fertilizer and pre-emergent weed control. In late spring, the grass gets another treatment with slow-release fertilizer to encourage strong growth, as well as more weed control if necessary.
In early and late summer, more treatments are applied to fortify the grass. Our early fall treatment prepares the turf for winter weather, and our winterizer balances grass before it enters its dormant period.
For insect control, timing is key. It’s important to treat your lawn for grub infestations in late spring through late summer. We can also treat for other lawn pests like chinch bugs and armyworms.
Mow Your Lawn Properly & Routinely
To keep that well-fertilized lawn looking beautiful, it’s important to establish a regular mowing schedule throughout the year.
Callout: In Buffalo Lawn & Pest Services, you can expect to see us for 25-35 mows per year, depending on the weather.
Maintaining a proper height for your grass blades is vital, as it allows for maximum sun and hydration to create proper photosynthesis. We never cut more than one-third of the blade’s height.
By mowing consistently, we can also help to spot pest issues, stop weeds before they start, and keep your curb appeal looking fantastic with our standard edging, string-trimming, and blowing services.
Upgrade and Repair Your Irrigation System
Did you know it’s possible to harm your lawn through overwatering? We can check your irrigation system to see if it’s wasting water or not using enough water. There are many aspects to an irrigation system and it’s easy for those aspects to malfunction. We can check your sprinkler heads, pipes, timers, and even install smart irrigation controllers.
Callout: Proper hydration is key to ensuring your lawn stays healthy during the year.
Perform Spring & Fall Yard Cleanups
Another way to keep your yard looking pristine is to perform seasonal cleanups. During a cleanup, yard debris like sticks and leaves is removed. In the spring cleanup, landscape beds are tended to with trimming and weeding and reshaping if needed. This is also the perfect time of year to refresh your hardwood mulch.
In the fall cleanup, we will remove leaves from your yard as this allows your grass to receive air and light. Keeping leaves on your lawn for too long can affect its health and also create a haven for yard pests to hide. Your lawn will also receive aeration at this time, giving the soil time to get the nutrients needed to make it through the winter dormancy.
