A Few Ways to Get Your Lawn Ready for Spring

While it may feel like we're still in the middle of winter, there are a few hints that spring is just around the corner! The days are throwing hints of warmth in the air, and a few little buds may even be popping up. Every spring, there are a few things your lawn needs to e healthy and cared for, thankfully we know just what to do! Here are a few ways we can help get your lawn ready for spring!

Remove Debris

The winter season can bring debris, which won't encourage a healthy lawn. From matted down areas that need some raking back into position, or areas where the leaves have cut off the air flow to your grass, we can help with all of this!Sometimes the leaves and debris that gets blown around in the winter can also bring disease or insect infestations, making it harder for new grass to grow. Prior to spring coming, it's a good idea to hire your favorite landscapers at the Lake of the Ozarks to help with this.

Apply Pre-Emergent Weed Control

You want weed killer applied early in the spring before the ground reaches 55-60 degrees. After it warms up too much, the weed seeds will have already germinated, and it can be VERY difficult to get rid of them after that. Paradise Landscaping would be glad to come out and apply weed killer to your landscape and have it ready for the spring season!


By fertilizing during the prime time, you can jump start lawn from its winter sleep. The nutrients that it provides gives it the strength to stand up to the heat, stress and drought that the summer months can bring. You can hire the best landscapers at the Lake of the Ozarks to take care of this task for you!

Core Aeration

Spring is a wonderful time to aerate the core of your lawn. Core aeration allows water and air to reach the root zone faster, which results in new growth and better root development. It's important to aerate before the soil reaches 55-60 degrees because after this point your lawn can be at risk for aggressive weed seeds.

Other Repairs

Winter can wreak havoc on your yard whether it's from the salt, snow plows, or just the constant wetness that creates holes and puddles that weren't there before. Spring can be a wonderful time to repair these areas that need addressing. Keep in mind that if you'll be putting any kind of weed control down, it can harm the growing process of brand new grass. Sometimes it may be better to save the new planting for fall. We can help you achieve just want you need in your landscape, and make it look beautiful all spring and summer.
