If you want to keep your turf healthy and beautiful throughout the year, then it's crucial that you schedule spring lawn care services in Florida. The most important treatments for this season are fertilization, pre- and post-emergent weed control, and preventative insect and disease control.

Fertilizing in the spring will help your lawn recover from any winter-related damage while also providing essential nutrients to start the new growing season on the right foot. Meanwhile, pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments will keep weeds at bay so they can't steal resources from your grass or drag down its curb appeal. Two other vital spring lawn care services include preventative insect control to prevent infestations and disease control treatments to protect against fungal diseases.

Fertilizing your lawn in the spring will give it much-needed nourishment after the winter.

The first spring lawn care service that should be on your to-do list is fertilization. Fertilizer gives your grass the essential nutrients it needs to survive and thrive, especially during transitional seasons like spring. To promote overall growth and vigor in your grass, you'll want to use a liquid fertilizer. Your lawn will be able to absorb this treatment quickly, meaning it'll recover after winter dormancy and bounce back in no time. That way, it starts the new growing season on the right foot.

Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium are the three main macronutrients in lawn fertilizers.

Weed Control Treatments Help Keep Your Lawn Weed-Free for the New Growing Season

The next spring lawn care service that you'll want to sign up for is weed control. Weeds can be problematic because they take away space and resources from your grass, such as nutrients, water, sunlight, and oxygen. That's why you need both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments for the best results!

  • Pre-emergent weed control helps prevent newly germinated weeds from breaking through the soil surface, stopping them before they can even sprout! This type of treatment is effective when applied early enough in the spring.
  • Post-emergent weed control eliminates existing weeds on your lawn. It works by seeping into their roots and eliminating them at the source, allowing your grass to absorb more nutrients without interference. This type of weed control is ideal for getting rid of any weeds that already passed a certain point in their growth cycle and weren't affected by the pre-emergent treatment.

Preventative lawn insect and disease control treatments are vital for the spring.

Pests like grubs, chinch bugs, armyworms, and mole crickets can cause serious damage to your lawn if left untreated. For this reason, you'll want to invest in preventative insect control treatments in the spring. These treatments work by creating a protective barrier between your turf and harmful insects. By applying them ahead of an insect outbreak, they can block them from ever reaching your grass.

Diseases like brown patch, zoysia patch, and dollar spot are common threats to lawns here in Florida. Fortunately, preventative disease control treatments are just what you need to ward off these infections in the spring. They accomplish this by targeting fungi early on before they get the upper hand. When administered at the appropriate times, they can maintain the health of your grass and prevent extensive damage.
