Spring Lawn Care Options for Northern Lawn

March 1, 2011

What a winter! A good sign that spring weather is around the corner is when you start to ask: What do I put on my lawn this spring to improve it?

First thing is to pick up fallen tree limbs and rake any lawn areas that have a fungus called snow mold. These patches will be white or tan and will have grass blades stuck together in a mat. When you use a leaf rake on these patches, you help to expose the grass plants underneath the matted grass blades to sunlight and air so they can grow.

The next step is to figure out what to feed your lawn. You make your choice based on whether you had annual weeds, like crabgrass or foxtail, last summer. If you had these weeds, go with Turf Builder with Halts to do two jobs at one time: feeding and preventing new weeds from seed. Be sure to water your lawn after you spread Turf Builder with Halts. The alternative for those lawns with no annual weeds last summer is to feed with Turf Builder.

f your lawn has bare spots, spread Scotts EZ Seed. Remember to NOT spread Turf Builder with Halts in areas you plan on seeding. If you have large areas to seed and you need to prevent crabgrass, you should use Scotts Starter Fertilizer Plus Crabgrass Preventer to stop crabgrass without stopping your new grass seed from growing. For answers to your lawn questions, contact the Scotts Help Center.
