April is Lawn and Garden Month – the perfect time for Jay to share lawn care tips with the Omaha Executives Association (OEA).
OEA was established in 1924 and continues their mission to provide Omaha executives an avenue to network and develop business and personal relationships.
Jay presented helpful tips for Spring lawn care with the group – and we want to share those with you as well:
· Be patient with your lawn. Some patches may look better than others. That is normal!
· If you plan on overseeding your lawn this Spring, do that now, before May 1. Don’t fertilize the newly seeded area. Call Turf Care to discuss when it’s safe to apply.
· Pay attention to the weather. You want the seeded area to stay moist, be careful not to overwater.
· Don’t be too eager to start mowing. Some patches of grass may be growing taller than others, and you may be tempted to mow. Waiting until the grass grows a little longer will help your lawn establish healthy roots. When you do mow for the first time, just cut the top third and bag the clippings to help spur healthy growth.
We are anxious for consistent warmer weather – especially after the long winter. While we may still experience some cold snaps, the good news is that warmer days, green grass, and blooming trees and flowers are here.
Take time now during Lawn and Garden Month to prepare your lawn for a green healthy season!
