Did you know that spring is one of the most important times to perform lawn maintenance? Here at Mesa Turf Masters, we’re a locally owned and family operated Vail CO lawn care company that’s completely dedicated to providing excellent lawn care services and making customer experience a top priority. While winter is certainly still in full swing in Colorado, it’s not too early to consider Spring preparation. We’ve got some tips for you to soak in that will help you prevent your beautiful lawn from being overtaken with weeds, stressed by drought, and heat.

1. Get rid of all of the debris that’s accumulated over the winter months on your lawn. This is also a great time to rake up any matted down grass from snow because these areas can harbor snow mold. By raking these areas and removing debris, you encourage better air flow, prevent disease, and prevent insect infestation.

2. Consider calling Mesa Turf Masters out to apply a pre-emergent to your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other weeds. Timing is critical though because it has to be applied before temperatures reach 55-60 degrees!

3. Consider having Mesa Turf Masters apply fertilizer to your lawn, too. This is a great time of the year to get a jump start on waking your lawn from its winter slumber with strength and nutrients. This way, your lawn will be better prepared to handle the stresses from heat and droughts that come with the warmer months.

Remember, the better your prepare your lawn for spring, the more prepared it will be to face the warmer, dryer months ahead!
