Early Tasks to Accomplish Before New Growth Begins

Removing dead leaves to promote new growth

Each year in Michigan, as the snow begins to melt and temperatures rise, we find left over dead leaves from the previous fall, discolored/ dead grass, and debris that the snow was hiding. Before spring it is essential to complete a few tasks in order to help promote new growth and ensure you have a lush, healthy, and vibrant lawn.

Clear Away Dead Leaves and Debris:

Clearing away the dead leaves and debris is essential for promoting new growth. It allows sunlight to reach the soil surface, prevents the buildup of harmful pathogens, and reduces competition for water and nutrients among plants.

Treat for Weeds

Early treatment allows you to target weeds when they are smaller and more vulnerable. This makes control measures more effective and reduces the chance of spreading. Treating early helps the health and productivity of the affected area providing a better environment for desired new growth.

Spread Mulch

Doing this simple step before new growth occurs is crucial. Mulch helps create a protective barrier that conserves soil moisture, suppresses weed growth, and regulates soil temperature. Together these provide an optimal environment for the healthy development of plants.

Aerate and Overseed

Aerating and over seeding promotes proper soil oxygenation, alleviates compaction, and introduces fresh seeds. New growth needs a great environment for healthy root development and the establishment of lush, vibrant vegetation that this task provides.
