Lawn Mower Spring Tune Up

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Every year we tend to forget about our mowers for 6 months. Well today is the day, the day we can start thinking about them again. It’s time to usher in a new era, and almost time for the “Changing of the Guard” (from snowblower to mower). As we plan to retire our blower to the shed, and prep our mower for the short summer season, use these helpful tips to help extend the life of both machines.

I always recommend bringing your mower out and giving it a good checkup before the mowing season begins. This is something most people can do themselves, but there are professionals in Anchorage that can do it for you. Here at GEM, we go through all of our mowers starting in late March, and this article can help guide you through your lawn mower maintenance.

What is thatch, and how to handle it

Is thatch hurting your Anchorage lawn?

 

thatch-layer

Taking care of thatch is one of the first steps in kicking off your summer lawn care. This nuisance can easily be overcome, and should be taken care of on a regular basis.

What is thatch?

Thatch is a naturally occurring layer of roots, stems, and other pieces of organic debris from tree leaves and seeds. Some thatch is good, and can help your lawn regulate the temperature of its roots, by blocking sun, and insulating at night. This thin layer of thatch (1/2″) is great for preventing your lawn from drying out from the hot summer sun. Too much thatch, however, can wreak havoc on your lawn, as well as looking very unsightly. Thatch occurs when new grass growth occurs faster than the decomposition of the old growth.

Great lawn care and landscaping helps sell homes.

Whenever you decide to sell your home, it can be a stressful and hectic time. It always seems there are a million things that need to be taken care of to present your home in “show” condition.
