Things I SHOULD & SHOULDN'T do to my lawn in March

March is here! Warmer weather is just around the corner!

 Which means true spring weather is practically here!

As the weather warms up, people can't wait to get back in their yard to prepare it for beautiful days spring delivers. Trust, we are excited about the warm weather also. At moments it can be a bit overwhelming. Maybe you just aren’t sure what you CAN do, but you know you just have to do something.

Not sure where to start on your lawn? Here are a few things you SHOULD do this month:

  1. Remove any winter damage. Any branches, leaves, dirt, etc. laying on top of your grass should be removed. Although your lawn hasn’t started growing yet, these branches and weeds are going to start taking advantage of a weak lawn. They need to be removed.
  2. Prepare those lawn tools & mowers you have. Your tools have likely been sitting in your garage or shed for a few months. Pull them out and clean them up. Make sure they work and are ready to go when it’s time to start using them.

  • Snow mold disease is encouraged.
  • It is likely to invite turf damage from critters such as moles and mice in the spring.

 

Here are a few options to make sure that leaves are not covering a significant portion of your lawn:

  1. Rake them up or use a blower- compost the leaves
  2. Use a blower- bag and dispose of them
  3. Use a mower with a bagging attachment: you could either dispose or compost the leaf/grass mix
  4. Use a mower and mulch the leaves into small pieces let them fall into the lawn canopy. In my opinion this is the best option, because the leaves create organic matter and nutrients in which the soil and turf will benefit from. Some trees such as maples produce leaves that reduce weed seed germination when mulched into a lawn.
