If being stuck indoors has you yearning for an early spring, now is the perfect opportunity to start planning your dream Denver lawn
. Although temperatures may still be frigid, there is plenty you can do to prepare. Not only can planning now help you achieve your lawn goals, but it can also save you time and money once spring has arrived. If you are ready to get a head start on your lawn and landscaping projects, check out our expert tips and tricks below!
Service your mower
Although it may not be seeing a lot of action this time of year, servicing your mower is a great winter project. Take this time of inactivity to change the oil, sharpen the blades, and check for any damages. If you find something that you are unable to fix, talk to a professional or purchase a new one (you may even be able to find a great off-season deal). By inspecting and repairing your mower now, you will ensure it is ready to go when you are! When spring does arrive, be sure to mow early and often. If you are unsure of when to start mowing or need mowing advice, be sure to contact the knowledgeable team at Growing Green. Our professionals can help address any of your landscaping concerns and offer free quotes for all our lawn services.
Clean your lawn
While this may not be a great option when temperatures are below freezing, it can be accomplished on mild days. Rather than saving all your cleaning for the beginning of spring, consider setting small cleaning tasks every few days or weeks. Spend a few afternoons picking up twigs, rocks, trash, or anything else that has accumulated on your lawn. By cleaning and picking up debris throughout the winter, you can save yourself time in the spring and focus on other (more enjoyable) projects.
Consider lawn aeration or seeding
If your lawn experiences damage from problems like thatch or winter pests, you many need to consider spring seeding or lawn aeration. While it may be difficult to know if your lawn is suffering from one of these issues, it is important to keep an eye out as temperatures begin to rise again. Look out for bald spots or severe discoloration. If you notice any of these, it is important to act quickly. If the problem is not serious, a light seeding may be all that is needed. However, if the issue is more severe, you may need to aerate and re-seed your lawn. While you can do this yourself, we highly suggest hiring professionals, like the team at Growing Green
. By hiring a professional, you can determine the problem and eradicate it before it causes more harm.
