Tips For Spring Lawn Care

When you rake leaves in the fall, you make the effort to rake deeply. Don't just skim the surface, so as to remove the leaves.
When you rake leaves in the fall, you make the effort to rake deeply. Don't just skim the surface, so as to remove the leaves. A deep raking will remove thatch, too, allowing you to kill two birds with one stone. Even if you followed this advice in fall, I still recommend a spring raking: it will remove grass blades that died over the winter -- dead blades that are just waiting to become thatch!
 
But there's often another good reason for a spring raking. As you survey your lawn in spring, see if there are any matted patches, in which the grass blades are all stuck together. This can be caused by a disease known as "snow mold." New grass may have difficulty penetrating these matted patches. But a light raking will be sufficient to solve this problem.
Unlike any other type of gardening, terrace garden requires detailed plan. It should be proportionate with lawns, shrubs, ground covers and small trees. If desired, you can also assimilate the concept of water garden or rock garden or create a shady structure on your roof garden.
 
The next step would be choosing of plants. Fiber-rooted plants are preferred to tap root plants. In case of the latter, the plants have the tendency to grow through the building, thereby causing harm to it.
 
Make sure that the soil you use does not exert much pressure on the building. The adequate soil for the purpose is soil rite or peat moss. However, since it is a costly material, you can blend it either with garden earth or manure.
