What Causes Unhealthy Patches in My Lawn?

Five-Application Lawn Care Program to Repair Your Lawn
Fertilization for your lawn should start early in the spring season. The winter weather takes a toll on your lawn, depleting your soil of the nutrients it needs to thrive. With regular applications of our custom-blended fertilizer, we can replenish those nutrients in the soil to help your grass grow green and thick.
Summer is not the only season that needs weed control. Each month of the growing season in the spring will bring weeds, so as long as the weather supports lawn growth, it will support weed growth too. Multiple applications are required for effective weed control. Our Five-Application Lawn Care Program includes broadleaf weed control in the spring to help rid your lawn of weeds such as dandelions.
Although the spring season tends to be rainy, your lawn requires a good soaking rain every few days. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, your lawn will need to be watered. If you water your lawn yourself, be sure to make sure it’s a make sure deep soaking, rather than a 10-minute spray session.
It is also crucial to mow your lawn at the right height for a healthy lawn all spring long. You should keep your mower height between 2 1/2 -3″ during the spring and summer. Mowing your lawn too short can cause your grass to thin out, lose its green color, and will also encourage weed and crabgrass growth.
