Is Your Northern Virginia Lawn

Ready for Spring?

A 5-Point Punch List

Spring took its sweet time getting here; we’re ready to make sure you’re ready!

Check these 5 things off your list to have a Spring-Ready Northern Virginia lawn.


√ TREAT!  

 

The ideal treatment for your lawn includes pre-emergent chemicals with a high nitrogen count, low phosphate count, and potash. A recommended formula would be 25-10-10. Remember to use weed control

 

√ KEEP IT FRESH!

 

Add a fresh, one-and-a-half-inch topcoat of mulch to your beds. Remove the stale, old mulch.

 

√ PLANT YOUR SEEDS

 

Plant your Spring Annuals such as impatiens, petunias, and pansies. For a controlled, healthy start in a predictable environment, start your seedlings indoors.

 

EXECUTE ANIRRIGATION EVALUATION”

 

Start your sprinkler system and water your yard 1-2 times per week. Run a water hose on your rain sensor to make sure it is active. A rain sensor should deactivate sprinklers after 1/4" of accumulated rainwater. Check the water coverage for beds and make sure to adequately water all your plants and shrubs.

 

√ PLAN YOUR WATERING SCHEDULE

 

Water your grass once per week until June. As the weather becomes warmer and rainy days more infrequent, add additional minutes to watering your lawn.
