Now that it’s spring and our rainy mud season is over in New England, May is the perfect time to ready our yards and gardens for summer fun and entertaining. Although everybody enjoys seeing their lawn in garden party condition, not many are aware of the basics of lawn maintenance and grooming. Here’s some helpful general lawn maintenance tips from Scotts Turf Builder.
My husband is the DIY yard guy around here. This old house sits on a postage-stamp size yard of about one-quarter acre, so we don’t need to hire a lawn service to maintain the lower forty in East Egg.
We’ve lived in our home for over 35 years, and each spring he aerates and thatches the lawn to prevent the soil from being compacted. We’ve used Scott fertilizer many times over the years and he applies fertilizer and resdeeds our lawn as it has bare spots from grubs. As with fertilizer, buying quality grass seed pays off in a thicker lawn.
