  1. Proper Mowing Techniques: Begin the season by giving your lawn a fresh start with proper mowing techniques. Set your mower blades to the appropriate height to avoid scalping the grass, which can lead to stress and vulnerability to pests and diseases. Aim to mow when the grass is dry to achieve clean cuts and minimize the risk of spreading fungal infections.

  2. Regular Watering: Adequate hydration is essential for a healthy lawn, especially as temperatures rise during the spring months. Water deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth and drought resistance. Early morning is the best time to water, as it allows the grass to absorb moisture before the heat of the day evaporates it.

  3. Fertilization Schedule: Implementing a fertilization schedule tailored to your lawn's needs is crucial for promoting lush growth and vibrant color. At OCG Companies, we recommend a slow-release fertilizer applied early in the spring to kickstart growth and provide essential nutrients. Be sure to follow manufacturer instructions and avoid over-fertilizing, which can lead to nutrient runoff and environmental pollution.

  4. Weed Control: Spring is prime time for weed growth, but with proactive weed control measures, you can keep unwanted intruders at bay. Consider applying pre-emergent herbicides to prevent weed seeds from germinating, and spot-treat any existing weeds promptly to prevent them from spreading.

  5. Aeration and Overseeding: Over time, compacted soil can hinder root growth and water absorption, leading to a lackluster lawn. Schedule aeration to alleviate soil compaction and improve air and water circulation within the soil. Follow up with overseeding to fill in bare patches and introduce new, resilient grass varieties to your lawn.

By following these essential lawn care tips from OCG Companies, you can set the stage for a season of outdoor enjoyment and admiration. Remember, a healthy lawn not only enhances your property's curb appeal but also provides a welcoming environment for outdoor activities and relaxation. If you're ready to take your lawn to the next level this spring, trust the expertise of OCG Companies to help you achieve your landscaping goals.
