March Lawn Care
As we can finally begin the countdown to spring, PPLM’s crews are back in full operation with multiple March lawn care services taking place over the next few weeks. We aren’t out of the woods with winter weather, though; while temperatures seem to be creeping up, it is very normal to expect a few more freezes before the month is out. As a result, everything that we do is going to be touch and go based on the temperatures to make sure that our services are safe and effective for your lawn.
This month sees our fertilization crew continuing our first round of fertilizer and weed control. Additionally, this crew is going to be busy in the next couple of weeks performing spring seeding services for clients that are looking to get a jump on getting their lawn thicker than last season left it. Meanwhile, our maintenance crews are in the full swing of spring mulch installations and are on call to begin mowing services as soon as the grass begins to grow.

Generally, spring seeding is not necessary for most lawns if fall seeding is performed annually. Fall is the more ideal time anyway because the conditions are better suited to proper germination with fewer caveats than seeding in the spring. However, numerous PPLM clients are wishing to take advantage of spring seeding this year due to the difficult conditions seen last year due to the weather and fungal threats. If you haven’t already, contact our office to discuss whether or not spring seeding is right for you.

March is one of the most important months of the year for homeowners and lawn care professionals alike. It’s a pivotal time for fertilizer and weed control, part of a narrow window of opportunity for spring seeding ventures, the start to the busy season for mulch installation in flower beds, and most likely when the lawn is going to need to be mowed for the first time. With so much to do and think of, it’s important to stay up to date and keep an eye on the grass.
