- Removing Winter Debris: Spring clean-up primarily involves removing debris that has accumulated over the winter months, such as fallen branches, twigs, and any remaining leaves. Snow and ice can cause these materials to accumulate on your lawn, and it’s important to clear them to allow your grass to breathe and grow.
- Lawn Raking and Dethatching: In the spring, you may still need to rake your lawn to remove any remaining debris, dead grass, and thatch (a layer of dead grass and organic matter that can accumulate on the soil’s surface). This helps improve air circulation and allows new grass growth to emerge more easily.
- Repairing Winter Damage: The harsh Massachusetts winter can cause damage to your lawn. Spring is the time to assess and repair any areas of your lawn that may have been affected by snow mold, salt damage, or other winter-related issues. This may involve overseeding, topdressing with soil, or reseeding damaged areas.
- Aeration: Spring can be an ideal time for lawn aeration in Massachusetts. Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to improve water and nutrient penetration, reduce soil compaction, and promote healthier root growth. It is often done in the spring to prepare the lawn for the growing season.
- Pruning and Trimming: Spring is a suitable time to prune and trim trees and shrubs in your yard. This promotes healthy growth, enhances the appearance of your landscape, and ensures that your lawn receives adequate sunlight.
The primary goal of spring clean-up is to prepare your lawn for the growing season, allowing it to recover from winter stress and thrive during the warmer months. It sets the foundation for a healthy, vibrant lawn throughout the spring, summer, and into the fall.
