8 Spring Lawn Care Tips You Wish You Knew Before

Get your lawn ready for spring with these helpful tips for lawn care. Learn how to mow, trim, blow, and transform your lawn today to make it stand out.

Spring is here; you can feel the warm breeze in the morning, and as the sun surfaces, you notice the snow thawing away, revealing the effects of the harsh winter on your lawn. And that brings you concerns about improving your lawn and getting it back to its glory.

While this is no small task, it is doable whether you are a beginner or a seasoned gardener. This article provides practical spring lawn care tips to help you achieve the picture-perfect lawn you desire. We have also included a simple guide for spring lawn care using our garden tools and valuable tips to help you maintain these tools.

Let’s delve into the best spring lawn care tips.

1. Clean Up and Rake Your Yard Gently

The harsh winter weather causes twigs, branches, leaves, and other debris to accumulate on your lawn. This debris suffocates the grass preventing it from growing properly. That is why we recommend you start the spring lawn care process by cleaning up your yard.

Start by picking up branches, sticks, and stones. Then rake gently, starting from the edge of your lawn, and work inward to remove dead grass from your lawn. You can use a battery-powered leaf blower to remove leaves and other small debris from your lawn.

If there is some snow left, you can use an electric snow blower to hasten the process. Our 40V cordless electric snow blower is a good option if you need more power for efficiency. And, if the lawn is muddy, this cordless pressure washer gun from our collection is a good option.

Pro Tip: Wait until the snow has thawed before raking to avoid damaging the grass and soil.

2. Trim Trees and Hedges

Trees, bushes, and hedges complement the aesthetics of your lawn. As part of early spring lawn care, inspect trees and hedges for overgrowth or winter damage, which may result from heavy snow or wind. Then, prune the trees by removing dead or decaying limbs.

We recommend using a cordless chainsaw for pruning trees like this one from our collection. However, if the limbs are hard to reach, use a cordless pole saw. Here are some options you can explore.   

If you are a DIY gardener, you can trim and shape hedges and bushes using our cordless hedge trimmer; it is lightweight and super seamless, even for beginners.

Pro Tip: Prune trees and trim hedges during early spring to remove damaged branches and prevent the spread of diseases to other parts of the plant.

3. Dethatch

The next step of spring lawn care is to dethatch. A thin layer of thatch protects the soil and grass; however, allowing it to build up prevents nutrients and water from penetrating the soil and reaching the new seeds, which ultimately delays the healthy growth of grass.

Use a dethatching rake to remove debris, roots, and dead grass accumulating on your lawn.

4. Aerate

Aerating loosens compacted soil and improves air circulation, water penetration, and nutrient absorption. If your kids run a lot on your lawn or it has a high clay content, you should aerate it to promote the growth of a resilient lawn.

Use an aerator to punch holes in your lawn.

Pro Tip: Don’t aerate after applying pre-emergent herbicide, as this will affect the effectiveness of the treatment.

5. Kill the Weeds

The grass in your lawn is not yet ready to compete for nutrients and sunlight with weeds just after it survives winter. Thus, as a gardener, you must apply pre-emergent herbicides to kill weeds like crabgrass before they emerge during early spring.

You can also explore other methods to eliminate weeds in your lawn, such as pulling them out by hand or using a weed wacker. Our weed wacker is designed to tame weeds even in hard-to-reach places. You can install brush cutter blades in a string trimmer if the weeds are tall; this battery-powered string trimmer has variable speeds and a brushless motor, making it suitable for various applications.

6. Fertilize

We recommend fertilizing your lawn as part of your spring lawn care to-do list. Fertilizing the lawn improves soil fertility and increases the growth of grass.

You can fertilize your lawn using compost or commercial fertilizer. Be sure to use the appropriate nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium levels that best suit your lawn soil.

Pro Tip: Water your lawn 2-3 days before applying fertilizer to absorb it well.

7. Repair the Bald Patches

If your lawn has visible bald patches, you can repair them by sowing more grass seed. You can use our battery-powered lawn mower to cut and shorten grass in those areas before planting the new seeds, along with a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer.

Pro Tip: Water the seeds daily for at least two weeks to allow them to sprout.

8. Mow the Lawn

Mowing the lawn is an essential spring lawn care practice, considering some patches may have longer grass than others. As spring settles, you will notice that the grass in your lawn grows more frequently and evenly, but you must mow it to even out every part.

If you are looking for an effective and silent model, our silent lawn mower is a great option. It is designed to cut the grass at 3-4 inches tall, which is recommended for maintaining a healthy lawn.
