MAINE, USA — Winter is over but it's still a little early to get into your garden. You can, however, start working on your lawn.
Common things that are found once the snow is gone are vole damage and snow mold. Once you have raked excess debris away, you can assess the damage. Let the lawn have a chance to regrow, but you can do some loaming if needed. Raking up the dead grass and allowing the lawn to repair itself will usually take care of these issues.
Domingos does highly recommend a deep thatching in the early spring.
“It wakes the lawn up,” said the grass geek. “Airs it out, gets it ready for the season.”
Soil testing is also an important part of knowing your lawn.
Domingos recommends for his organic lawn clients the use of a weed puller that grabs the plant by the root in the form of a plug.
