The Essentials of Spring Lawn Maintenance

Spring is here, and your lawn needs your help so that it can shake off the effects of winter and return to optimal health. How you care for your lawn now will ensure a thick, beautiful yard that you and your family can enjoy for the rest of the year.

One of the largest direct impacts on a healthy lawn is good cultural practices. What does that mean? It’s really just a fancy way of talking about lawn care. Cultural practices include everything from proper mowing, watering, and landscaping.

As a leading lawn fertilization service for homes throughout Bucks County, PA, we here at Go Green Lawn Services know a lot – and care a lot – about cultural practices. The wrong ones can have an immediate and sometimes residual effect on your lawn, and we’re here to help you avoid that!

Here are our recommendations for good spring cultural practices:

Mowing

In the spring, our experts recommend that you mow your lawn weekly or biweekly (every two weeks). Ideally, we want the grass to be between 3-4 inches long. The longer the blades of grass, the deeper the roots, and deeper roots can absorb nutrients from deeper in the soil. If you have really short grass that’s constantly getting stressed with frequent mowing, on top of heat and droughts, the grass will not be able to stay green and healthy.   

Watering

We can’t stress this enough: We do NOT want to be watering in the spring. Too much of anything for your lawn can do more damage than good. Usually, we recommend watering in the summer months (June, July, and August) one to three times a week depending on rainfall with deep infrequent watering, just like nature provides.  

Weeding

Weeds in flower or mulch beds should be removed, so their seeds don’t spread into the grass area. Sticks and leaves should also be cleaned up so the grass can get the sunlight and water it needs.

Hiring a Lawn Service

If you have any questions on how you can improve your lawn, please give Go Green Lawn Services a call. If you fear you won’t have time to properly maintain your lawn this spring, again, call us. We can provide all the help you need, whether it’s weed removal or lawn treatment for ticks anywhere in Montgomery County, PA. We care about keeping our entire area beautifully green, and we look forward to serving you and your lawn.

Earth Day and How We Strive to Care for the Environment

Our slogan “making the grass greener and the environment cleaner” is not just a catchy phrase to market our services, it’s our company’s primary objective. It is who we are and what we do to make our business as environmentally conscious as possible. This Earth Day, we want to highlight the operations we have improved upon and shed light on some areas where we are striving to do better.  

Go Green!

Go Green Lawn Services, your go-to company for the best organic lawn care in Montgomery County, PA, started over seven years ago with the idea that we could provide better service with safer, more efficient products. Our supplies are free from unnecessary chemicals that have a negative impact on the health of your soil. We use only the best products, free from traditional chemicals like nitrates and phosphates, for our own families, children and pets, and we extend the same environmentally conscious service to every single customer as well. Often companies use harmful products for a quick fix that is temporary rather than finding long term solutions for healthy soil and a gorgeous, green lawn.

How We Can Help

Not only do we use organic-based fertilizer, grub control, and pH balance, but we also explore ways on the operation side of how we can improve our customer service with the least amount of negative repercussions to the environment. We are able to visit our customers less often than competitive lawn service companies and save fuel, due to our use of products that are effective for longer stretches of time than traditional chemicals.

Looking to the Future

We are switching to paperless invoices with most of our communication through phone or email. We want to get to a point where we don’t use any harmful chemicals in our weed control. In the future, scientific advances will lead to safer organic products for effective crabgrass and nutsedge removal and Go Green Lawn Care, who also specializes in flea treatment for your yard in Newtown, PA, will be at the forefront of the movement. For now, we will continue to use fewer harmful products in safer quantities, as well as practice positive cultural methods, including proper mowing heights and timing, spring and fall cleanups, and fall lawn aerating and seeding.

Join us at Go Green Lawn Services in our celebration of Earth Day and let us know if there’s anything we can do to help you achieve a lush lawn that’s as healthy as it is beautiful!
