Spring is in the Air!

Spring in Terre Haute is the time of year when the winter grays begin to fade and the springtime greens return.  The melted ice and snow reveal a battered landscape littered with debris and in need of a gardener’s helping hand.  With this beautiful and enjoyable season comes the burden of performing the springtime chores. All leaves, branches, and dead plants that have collected on your lawn and in your flowerbeds need removed to allow room for the spring flowers and the grass to grow unchallenged. Mulch tends to fade and requires a new top dressing in the spring to provide an equally impressive canvas for your plants to grow on.  The new mulch also aids in the ongoing battle with weeds and increases soil moisture retention for nearby plants.  It is important to start cleaning and mulching the landscape as soon as the weather will allow because the work becomes more difficult to accomplish and more harmful to the plants once the new growth emerges. Spring and fall are the most crucial times to fertilize your lawn.  Why not start out on the right foot by implementing a fertilizing program this spring?  Giving your grass the necessary nutrients to grow and look healthy also gives your grass the strength to fend off encroaching weeds and to fill in bare spots in the lawn. If you find yourself in need of any spring cleaning and mulching services, Tiger Stripe Lawns LLC would be more than happy to help!  We start cleaning and mulching in March so give us a call and get scheduled today!
Lawn mowing in Terre Haute generally starts in April and ends in November, but the frequency of mowing will vary based on current weather conditions.  Some months may require more frequent mowing than others due to high rainfall amounts or less frequent due to drought. Cutting grass shorter than the recommended height will hurt your grass and gives weeds room to take over.  The height of your grass directly affects the depth of the grass roots and the ability to compete with invading weeds.  Taller grass has deep roots needed to reach water on those dry summer days and it blocks out sunlight for neighboring weeds.  Short grass has shallow roots that cannot reach water and will suffer when hot, dry summer days arrive, making the grass an easy target for invading weeds.  3-4 inches is usually ideal for most lawns.  It is recommended that you have your lawn cut at least once per week with sharp blades to keep it looking its best. When mowing your lawn, try not to remove more than 1/3 of the height of your grass at a time.  By removing more than 1/3 of the grass blade, or scalping, the grass takes its energy away from building healthy roots to quickly try to grow back the damaged blades.  This will result in a less healthy, less drought tolerant plant.  It’s best to cut your lawn before it gets too tall and keep it cut frequently.

Increase curb appeal

Renew garden beds by pruning overgrowth, pulling weeds, planting flowers, and installing new mulch.  Make sure the boarder of the bed is clean and any stones or bricks are in place as they should be.   If your border is old or outdated consider upgrading to a new stone, brick, or rock edge.  Add plants that will turn heads.  A pop of color goes a long way to give your property the curb appeal you deserve.
