March Lawn Care Routine: What I’m Doing This Month

Every year before Easter I make sure to get my lawn prepped and ready to go for the Spring and Summer heat. By nailing this routine, I’m able to get green grass quickly that stays green throughout the year. I’ve missed this window of opportunity before and ended up with more weeds than grass.

My 5-step pre-Easter lawn care checklist:

  1. Complete a soil test kit: soil test kits are the easiest way to get a diagnostic on your yard to determine exactly what it needs. Go ahead and send it in ASAP and complete the next steps while you wait.
  2. Clean the canvas: Get all the sticks, leaves, debris, and anything else off of your lawn that has been sitting there for the past few months.
  3. Put down pre-emergent: Pre-emergent is the best way to protect your lawn from invasive grasses and weeds that love to pop-up and choke out your grass.
  4. Use the results from your soil test kit: After a week or so, your soil test kit results should be in and a fertilizer recommendation should have been made. Follow these instructions to make sure your lawn is getting the right nutrients.
  5. Put down mulch: Mulch is a great way to make your lawn stand out and contrast against your perfectly green grass.
