Early Spring Weather: Here’s Why You Need to Start Lawn Mowing Early This Year

Welcome to spring! As flowers begin to bloom and trees begin to bud, it’s clear that this season is arriving with a wave of early growth, thanks to the early warm-up we experienced. At Good Guys Lawn Care, we’re already fielding calls from clients eager to get a jump on taking care of their lawns. Here’s why starting your lawn care early this year isn’t just a nicety—it’s a necessity.

Early Growth Calls for Early Action

This year, the mild temperatures and occasional rains have coaxed our lawns back to life sooner than usual. You might have noticed that your grass is already taller and greener, which might feel like a welcomed change from dormant and yellow, but this early growth can actually spell trouble if not managed promptly.

Here’s what early growth means for your lawn:
  1. Weed Control: Early mowing helps keep weeds under control. Weeds compete with grass for nutrients, light, and water; cutting them down early in the season can prevent them from taking over your lawn. In addition to mowing, our fertilizer and weed control programs can wipe them out for good!

  2. Disease Prevention: A thick mat of old, dead grass can suffocate new growth and harbor fungal diseases. Early mowing helps your lawn break down the remaining dead foliage from last year so that new blades of grass can emerge from the ground. This reduces the risk of disease and promotes healthier, more uniform growth.

  3. Aesthetic Appeal: Regular mowing ensures your lawn stays manicured and beautiful. An overgrown lawn can look unkempt and reduce your property’s curb appeal.

Tips for Early Season Lawn Care

To make the most of our services and keep your lawn in pristine condition, consider the following tips:

  • Mow Often, Mow Right: In the early season, it’s important to mow routinely to manage growth, while selecting an appropriate mowing height. Remember not to cut more than a third of the grass blade at a time to avoid stress on the grass.
  • Water Wisely: Early morning, pre-dawn, is the best time to water your lawn, as this allows the water to soak deeply into the soil with minimal evaporation.
  • Stay on Schedule: Consistency is key in lawn care. Regular treatments and mowing will ensure the best results throughout the season.
