How to Keep Busy This Spring

When it comes to your home you want to make sure that you keep it as well maintained as possible. There are a number of things that are on the list for Spring maintenance. You might love yardwork, or you might dread it. Regardless of how you feel about it, there are things that need to be done in order to make sure that your home stays as beautiful as the day you bought it. This is also the perfect time to get things done because of it being safer to stay at home due to the coronavirus. Here is the list of items that McCaleb Homes has come up with that you need to get done this spring in order for your grass to look the best on the block.


When it comes to your grass it is essential that you scalp it the first mow of the season. What this means is that you’ll want to cut your grass as low as it can without damaging it. When doing this you’ll want to make sure that you are bagging as you go. It will be difficult to say the least and you’ll hate how fast your bag gets full, but the end results are worth it. This will help your grass grow, coming in fuller and greener than it ever has before.


This is essential in order for your grass to grow the way that you want it to. There are two ways that fertilizer can make it grow, either top growth or root growth. When it comes to the type of fertilizer to get, in the springtime you always want to get it one that will cause the top growth. Root growth is what you want to use in the fall. Top growth is important during the first of the season because it is what causes the lush, full grass that you want for the season. In order to keep yourself safe, use fertilizer from the previous Spring so that you avoid going to the store.

Sprinkler Start Up

Of course, when it comes to your grass growing, you have to make sure that you’re watering it. If you’re past the last freeze of the season, then it's time to get them up and going. After you have scalped your grass, then fertilized it, getting water to it is next on the list. It is essential to getting it growing full and a dark rich green color.
