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!
