Steps For A Great Spring Lawn
Aerate The Soil
Aerators are used to poke holes in the ground to allow air and water and other nutrients to reach the roots. For best results consider an aerator that removes plugs of soil and grass.
Mowing low lets more sun reach and warm the soil. Warmer sun results in greener, healthier grass. It is possible to cut your grass too low. Cutting below the green leaf blades and into the brown stems is called scalping, which weakens the grass and leaves it vulnerable to insects and weeds.
