Hello valued customers of Deeply Rooted Lawn Maintenance! Welcome back to our blog, where we provide you with expert tips and strategies to keep your lawn healthy and beautiful throughout the year. Today, we are going to focus on nurturing your lawn through the changing seasons, and share proven strategies from Deeply Rooted to help you achieve the lush green lawn of your dreams.


As the weather warms up and nature comes back to life, spring is the perfect time to kick off your lawn care routine. Start by conducting a thorough spring clean-up, removing any debris, thatch, or dead vegetation that has accumulated over the winter. This will allow for better air circulation and sunlight penetration, promoting healthy growth.

Once your lawn is clean, it's time to give it a boost with a high-quality fertilizer. Fertilizing in the spring will provide your grass with essential nutrients for strong root development and vigorous growth. Be sure to choose a fertilizer that is specifically formulated for spring application, and follow the instructions carefully.


As the temperatures rise and the days get longer, your lawn will require some extra care to stay healthy and green. One of the most important tasks in the summer is proper watering. Deeply Rooted recommends watering your lawn deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth. Water early in the morning to reduce evaporation, and avoid watering in the evening to prevent fungal diseases.

In addition to watering, it's essential to mow your lawn regularly during the summer months. Keep your grass at a height of around 3 inches to promote healthy growth and shade out weeds. Be sure to sharpen your mower blades regularly to ensure a clean cut and prevent damage to the grass.


As summer fades into fall, it's time to prepare your lawn for the colder months ahead. Start by aerating your lawn to alleviate soil compaction and promote better nutrient absorption. Overseeding is also beneficial in the fall to fill in any bare patches and thicken up your lawn.

After aerating and overseeding, it's essential to apply a fall fertilizer to provide your grass with the nutrients it needs to survive the winter. Look for a fertilizer with a higher potassium content to strengthen your lawn's roots and improve its cold tolerance.


During the winter months, your lawn may go dormant, but that doesn't mean you can neglect it completely. To help your grass survive the cold, be sure to keep it free of debris and leaves that can smother the plants. Avoid walking on your lawn when it's frozen, as this can damage the grass blades.

In addition to these seasonal strategies, proper lawn care also includes regular mowing, edging, and weed control throughout the year. By following these proven strategies from Deeply Rooted, you can maintain a healthy and vibrant lawn that will be the envy of your neighborhood.
