As the days grow longer and warmer, you may eagerly await your chance to get back to gardening and lawn maintenance in San Jose. If you are a relatively new homeowner, it is a good idea to give yourself a refresher on how to appropriately take care of your lawn and yard. Watch this video clip for a handful of tips for getting your lawn ready for summer.
The fall and winter season tend to deposit a great deal of debris onto your lawn that you will want to remove once springtime finally rolls around. This debris may consist of twigs, leaves, or even litter that may have accidentally found its way into your yard. Rake your lawn during the spring and don’t wait to start mowing. You should, however, hold off on fertilizing; fertilizing too early encourages your grass to worry about leafiness first instead of growing strong roots.
