Prep Your Yard for Spring

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Chances are, your yard can use a little post-winter pick up. Here are three tips in 30 seconds that’ll help you prep your yard for spring.

One: Dethatch and rake. Too much thatch prevents water from penetrating to the soil level and weakens turf root systems.

Two: Evaluate your lawn. Does it have a few bare spots? No problem. You can use an all-in-one seed and fertilizer mix to promote growth and get those areas off to a strong start.

Three: Don’t forget to clean out your flowerbeds by removing any weeds, dead annuals and other debris. The soil will warm up and your perennials will love the sunlight!
