Take These Five Lawncare Tasks off Your Plate this Spring | The Experienced GardenerIn order to properly care for your lawn, there is a long list of tasks you need to complete on a regular basis. You need to provide your lawn with nutrition to keep it healthy and boost growth. This can be done with aeration and fertilization. It is also important that you protect your lawn from threats that can make it look bad or even kill it off completely. These threats include pests, disease, and weeds. None of these tasks are one-and-done - they have to be completed on a schedule in order to provide your yard with continuous nutrition and protection. If this sounds complicated you can avoid getting overwhelmed by bringing in professional help. With regularly scheduled lawn care services you can take the tasks of aeration, fertilization, pest protection, disease control, and weed control off of your plate this spring.

Aeration

Aeration is the process of removing small plugs of soil throughout your lawn. Removing the plugs of soil opens up the root system of your grass. This allows nutrition to get directly to the root and also reduces soil compaction that may have occurred. Aerating your lawn requires the use of specialized equipment. For small yards it is possible to use a handheld tool for aeration. Larger yards require the use of a mower or tractor attachment for aeration. Few homeowners have the time or access to equipment needed for proper aeration. You can take this task off your plate by hiring a lawncare pro to help with aeration.

Fertilization

Fertilization is a process that can go hand-in-hand with aeration. Fertilization provides nutrition to your lawn which can improve its growth and health. Fertilizing in conjunction with aeration will provide your lawn with maximum benefits. When the roots of the grass are opened up from aeration the fertilizer can get directly to them and provide a boost of nutrition. As with aeration, effective fertilization requires some equipment. When you hire a pro for aeration you can get help with fertilization as well and mark feeding your lawn off the list. 

Pest Protection

Pests are a constant threat to the health of your grass, trees, and plants. You can get help defending your yard against pests from a professional lawncare company. A lawncare company will apply treatment that will eliminate pests and prevent them from returning. You can work with your lawncare pro to set up a treatment schedule that will allow your lawn to remain pest-free all spring long.

Disease and Weed Control

You will have to deal with the threat of disease and weeds in your yard all spring unless you take proactive steps to fight against them. It can feel like a constant battle to keep weeds out of your yard. Fortunately, you do not have to deal with this task on your own. A lawncare pro can apply chemical treatment that eliminates disease and weeds now and prevent more in the future.
