Spring Rejuvenation

Your lawn needs a little REJUVINATION!

Is your lawn looking a little crispy and dormant?
Mother Nature truly has done her worst this winter and lawns are suffering. What can you do to rejuvenate your lawn come spring? Whether you do-it-yourself or sign up for a rejuvenation program with your local lawn care company, there are three key things you can do to nurture your lawn back to health.

1. Spring Clean up

After being neglected all winter, conduct a spring clean up. Assess your landscape for problem areas and remove sticks and debris that may be compacting the grass.

2. Taking care of weeds

Be sure to sign up for or apply a pre-emergent this early spring to ensure weeds don’t strike when the sun heats up. Taking care of weeds now will make caring for your landscape this season easier.

3. Probiotics

By adding a soil probiotic like Holganix you are enhancing the soil ecosystem and making your fertilizers and herbicides work more effectively. Probiotics will condition the soil with new biology, contribute to lawn root health, protect your turf from disease and make your fertilizers and pesticides work more efficiently at lesser rates.

Sounds like a lot of work? No worries, even the most fearless of DIY homeowners struggle to correctly apply probiotics and pre-emergent herbicide. Check out our rejuvenation program for more information.

Watch Out For Winterkill!

What REALLY happens to your lawn in winter?

Your grass may look dead, but in fact it’s quite alive. When winter arrives, the grass usually goes dormant. But, don’t worry, once temperatures begin to warm up, the grass will “wake up.”
It’s not too early to start thinking about turf rejuvenation

While your turf will naturally “wake up” after dormancy, it can suffer from winter injury. To ensure that your turf is healthy this spring, take these steps and begin thinking about spring rejuvenation.
1. Stay off the lawn if it’s frozen. Turf is more sensitive to being crushed when frozen, so do your best to stay off the grass this winter!

2. Start thinking about adding a probiotic to strengthen turf and soil health in the early spring. At Vivid Lawn we use Holganix, which allows us to jump-start the biology in the soil after a harsh winter, helping the lawn recover from winterkill.
Ensure your turf is ready for the spring and sign up for your spring lawn treatment!
