Seasonal Lawn Care Tips: Keep Your Yard Flourishing with Cunningham's Lawn & Landscaping LLC

As the seasons change, so do the needs of your lawn. Each time of the year requires a different approach to ensure your yard remains healthy and vibrant. At Cunningham's Lawn & Landscaping LLC, we understand the importance of seasonal lawn care. With our expertise in landscaping and hardscaping services, we are here to provide you with some valuable tips to keep your yard flourishing throughout the year.


Ah, the arrival of spring brings with it the opportunity to rejuvenate your lawn after the long winter. The first step is to clean up any debris left behind, such as fallen leaves and branches. Raking and removing dead vegetation will promote healthy growth. It's also a great time to aerate your lawn, allowing air, water, and nutrients to reach the grass roots. Don't forget to apply a pre-emergent herbicide to prevent the growth of weeds.


As temperatures rise and the days get longer, your lawn requires special attention to stay vibrant. To avoid damaging your grass, mow high during the summer months. This length helps shade the soil, keeping it cooler and allowing for better water retention. Regular watering is essential, but be sure to do it in the early morning to minimize evaporation. Additionally, apply a slow-release fertilizer during summer to provide your lawn with the nutrients it needs to thrive.


The arrival of fall signals that it’s time to prepare your lawn for the coming winter. Regularly rake fallen leaves to prevent them from smothering the grass underneath. A build-up of leaves creates a breeding ground for fungi and pests. Furthermore, fall is an optimal time for overseeding. By introducing new grass seeds, you ensure a denser and healthier lawn come spring. Don't forget to continue watering until the ground freezes.


While the grass may not seem as active during the winter months, proper care can make all the difference when spring arrives. Avoid heavy foot traffic on frozen grass as it can damage the turf. Additionally, winter is a good time to prune your trees and shrubs, as they are dormant. Proper pruning encourages healthy growth and gives your landscape a neat and tidy appearance. Lastly, remember to remove snow and ice from your sidewalks and driveway promptly to prevent injury and damage.

Year-Round Tips:

Proper lawn care isn't limited to seasonal changes alone. Consistent practices throughout the year contribute to a flourishing yard. Regularly mow your lawn using sharp blades to ensure a clean cut and reduce stress on the grass. Overwatering can drown your lawn, so water only when necessary, and allow the soil to dry out a bit in between watering. Regularly inspect your yard for signs of pests or diseases, and take prompt action if needed.
