Five Crucial Steps to Taking Care of Your Ohio Lawn

When you think about what your lawn goes through during the harsh Ohio winter, it is easy to see how harmful it can be to the long-term health of your soil and lawn. Your lawn, whether that be a business property or a residential property, needs to be treated like your pride and joy. 

Now, this might sound a little obscure to imagine, but you will put a lot of effort into something if you want to be proud of it. Putting your best efforts in terms of weed control and fertilization into your yard can cause it to live a long, healthy, bright life and continuously thrive season after season. 

Taking the time to recognize that your lawn is the first thing people see will allow you to understand why it is so important to create a yard that is a sight for sore eyes. If you already know this but you aren’t really sure where to start, Land Art has tried and true ways to help your yard succeed during every season. 

Here at Land Art, we have a five-step program that anyone’s Northern or Central Ohio yard can benefit from.

Spring Feeding Treatment 

This is where targeting weed control is an important step! Preventative measures are the best ones to take any day. During early spring, it’s important to apply a slow-release granular fertilizer that contains pre-emergent crabgrass control. This can quite easily give your lawn the boost it needs after winter and help with early signs of weed control needs. 

Early Summer Treatments 

During this time, it’s good to focus on granular fertilizer once again. This can be the key to getting your grass ready for the hottest part of the summer. This time, the fertilizer will be used in conjunction with a broadleaf herbicide — this spray specifically focuses on weed control in your yard. During the early summer, your yard should be inspected for pest control problems and treated accordingly.

Midsummer Care 

Insects can become a big problem midsummer. They thrive off heat and standing water, which are two things it’s tough to get away from in the hot Ohio area. During this period, we do another round of granular fertilizer that is applied to your entire yard. Your lawn should also receive some weed control treatments during this time as well, specifically for broadleaf weeds.

Other Opportunities to Feed Your Yard

Spring and summer are not the only seasons that your lawn will need some attention. Setting up your yard for year-round success includes a fall feeding, which will use fertilizer to help keep your grass looking attractive as the 80-degree weather turns into 20-degree weather. This is also a great option during the sweet spot at the end of fall, right before the despicable winter hits. This can allow for your lawn to get one more high dose of nutrients for its soil to be healthy and happy all winter, even under several feet of snow.
