2020 is a new year and part of a new decade. It’s the perfect time to set a foundation of health and beauty for your lawn for years to come. 2020 can be the year where you finally start to see some green. Here are a few of the best ways to make this the best year in lawn care.
One of the biggest threats to your lawn is an infestation of turf-damaging pests. Keeping your lawn pest-free will allow your yard to grow without stress or damage. In the end, a pest-free lawn is a healthy lawn. This year, be on the lookout for the earliest signs of a pest infestation and be aware of the most common pests in your area.
The best way to control pests in the lawn is by preventing them from getting there in the first place. A pest control program from TruGreen Midsouth offers all the protection that your lawn needs from these hungry menaces. A good way to prevent lawn pests is by ensuring your lawn is healthy. A healthy lawn is a strong lawn and a strong lawn is less likely to succumb to pest damage. Making sure your lawn is fertilized, properly irrigated, and the thatch is maintained will help you prevent a pest infestation in your lawn.
Your lawn is a living ecosystem made up of many different organisms. The best way to make 2020 the year of lawn care is by providing the entire lawn with proper care. The grass blades, grass roots, thatch level, and soil composition will all affect the health of your lawn. By addressing all of these components, you’ll be providing your lawn with complete care.
Properly fertilizing your lawn all year is one of the best (and easiest) ways to see quick improvements to lawn health. It’s important to fertilize your lawn the right way. Grabbing a random bag of fertilizer from the nursery may do more harm than good. The needs of a lawn change from season to season and depend on the type of grass.
Spring is typically about initial feeding and waking the lawn up. Summer usually consists of protecting the lawn from summer stress. The fall is all about root growth and preparation for winter. If you don’t want to guess about what fertilizers to use on your lawn, trust the experts. A lawn care program from TruGreen ensures your lawn will get the best treatments of the right fertilizers at the perfect time.
Another huge component of proper lawn care is weed control. Weeds don’t play nice with grass. They steal sunlight, water, and nutrients from your grass. They grow quickly and spread out, crowding out your grass and hindering their growth. Ultimately, a weed invasion hurts your lawn.
The types of weeds that sprout in your Mississippi lawn changes depending on the time of year and region you live in. Typically, the spring consists of pre-emergent weed sprays to block the seeds from sprouting. Summer and fall weed control consists of post-emergent applications that attack weeds that have already sprouted. Late fall and winter weed control utilizes broadleaf weed control to combat these common winter weeds.
The best way to ensure your lawn gets the best weed control throughout the year is with a lawn care program from TruGreen Midsouth. Our experts know exactly which weeds will sprout and when. Our program includes consistent weed control all year long. Having a weed-free lawn gives your lawn all the nutrients, space, sunlight, and water it needs to grow stress-free. In the end, your lawn will be healthier and more beautiful.
Core aeration is an extremely beneficial process of removing small plugs of compacted soil and thatch from the lawn. These cores are redistributed on the surface where they break down back into the soil. Core aeration is one of the best things you can do for your lawn all year long.
Pooling water, increased risk of insect and disease infestation, and nutrient and water restriction to grass roots are just a few of the problems caused by compacted soil and too much thatch. Over time, all lawns will develop some soil compaction and thatch buildup. It happens naturally as we use our lawns. The best way to fix it is with core aeration once a year. For warm-season grasses in Mississippi, the best time to aerate your lawn is in the late spring.
