Spring has finally arrived! This means it’s time to prepare your lawn for the season. A healthy, lush lawn not only looks great but can also help increase the value of your property. This month, we’re talking about six items you can find at your local hardware store, Townline Hardware, to revive your lawn!

Lawn Fertilizer

One of the most important things you can do for your lawn is to feed it. Lawn fertilizer provides the necessary nutrients to promote healthy growth and a vibrant, green lawn. We recommend looking for a fertilizer with a balanced mix of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Your hardware store will have a variety of fertilizer options to choose from, so be sure to ask a professional for recommendations.

Grass Seed

If you have bare patches in your lawn or want to thicken up the grass, then you’ll want to buy some grass seed. Choose a high-quality grass seed that’s appropriate for your region and matches the type of grass that’s already growing in your lawn. Your hardware store will have a variety of grass seed options to choose from, so be sure to ask for recommendations!

Garden Rake

Before you can apply fertilizer and seed your lawn, you’ll need to prepare the soil. Use a garden rake to remove any dead grass, leaves, or debris that may have accumulated over the winter. This will help to promote healthy growth and prevent thatch from building up.

Lawn Aerator

Over time, the soil in your lawn can become compacted, preventing air, water, and nutrients from reaching the roots of your grass. Lawn aeration involves removing small plugs of soil to allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the roots of your grass. You can rent an aerator machine from your local hardware store like Townline Hardware or hire a professional to do the job for you.

Lawn Mower Blades

If you plan to mow your lawn yourself, then you’ll need to make sure your lawn mower blades are sharp. Dull blades can tear the grass blades, causing damage to your lawn. Your hardware store may offer a blade sharpening service, or you can sharpen them yourself with a sharpening tool.

Garden Hose and Sprinkler

Watering your lawn is essential for its health and growth. A garden hose and sprinkler will make watering your lawn a breeze. Be sure to water your lawn deeply, but infrequently, to encourage deep root growth. Avoid watering in the evenings, as this can promote the growth of fungal diseases.
