Curb Appeal Week: How To Prep Your Lawn for Spring

Roll out the green carpet for the arrival of warmer weather.

We’ve reached the last day of curb appeal week but we saved the best for last. A nice lush lawn is not only pretty to look at but it also plays a major role in your home’s value.

Did you know that improving the lawn is one of the most cost effective ways to increase property value? Unlike other home improvement projects, landscaping can provide a 100%-200% return on your investment and has been known to increase a home’s overall value by as much as 15 percent. –TheLawnInstitute.org

Here are two great tips that will help you green up your grass and kill lawn weeds:

Tip 1: Get Rid of those Weeds

ORTHO® WEED B GON MAX® PLUS CRABGRASS CONTROL kills over 200 kinds of weeds and you can see results in just 24 hours. That includes the toughest of unwanted botanical guests: dandelions, crabgrass, and clover. Kills Weeds, Not Lawns™.”

Don’t forget  this tip from earlier this week: Green Up Your Lawn in Just 3 Days!

SCOTTS® GREENMAX™ LAWN FOOD provides essential nutrients grass needs for deeper greening in just 3 days. It also improves a lawn’s ability to absorb water and nutrients as well as thickens grass to help fill in bare spots.

Phil Dwyer, Scientist at ScottsMiracle-Gro, adds “When homeowners need a fast way to green-up their grass, I ask, ‘Have you ever tried GreenMax™?’ A lawn fertilizer plus iron supplement, GreenMax™ can provide noticeable greening in just 3 days.”

Always read and follow label directions.
