Not only will all the work make your landscape and home look beautiful, it will get you outside, enjoying the sun and nice weather, and it will help you clear your mind with a little physical activity.
Lawn Care It might be a bit of a sorry sight after the past 6 months, but with a bit of work, you can bring it back to life. If you can see a fair amount of thatch (the dead, straw-like stuff) you will need to rake it out before you attempt any other lawn care projects. The reason? Anything you add, such as new seed or fertilizer will simply sit on the thatch, rather than getting down into the soil, unless it is removed. Once you have de-thatched your lawn, you can add your fertilizer application. This helps the lawn to green up and recover from winter stress. Weed control and crabgrass preventative should also be applied during this step if you are not attempting to grow new grass or overseed.
