It’s a waste of your time to start planting and digging before the soil has fully unthawed, and while April brought warm temperatures, it brought plenty of nights below freezing. The temperatures in Anchorage are now rising enough for you to start planning
your luscious summer lawn. There are three simple steps to take in May to ensure green grass the entire summer.
Water – If there isn’t rain in the forecast make sure you are watering your grass. This alone has the biggest impact on your grass turning green again.
Clean – Melted snow will leave mulch and debris on your lawn. Many of which were left over from fall. To get your grass growing again, all of this needs to be removed.
An easy way to remove it is by running over it with a lawnmower. The blades will chew it up and leave piles that can be easily picked up.
Prepare – The most efficient way to have a tidy lawn all summer is by mowing weekly. After a winter in storage,
your lawn mower needs to be dusted off. Sharpening the blades is a good idea if you have not done that before.
In conclusion, the best way to get a luscious lawn this spring is by watering it and keeping it freshly cut. It’s not rocket science, but it does take persistence!
