Tips to Revitalize Your Yard For Spring

Are you trying to reverse the damages caused by the harsh winter weather in your yard? If so, a recent articled posted at CNN Money may provide some useful tips for you to get your yard ready for spring! Please read below for the first tip, then check out the rest of the article by clicking here.

Brown patches

The cause: Rock salt used to melt ice from roads, driveways, and pathways has gotten onto nearby grass or the bottom of shrubs and trees, often sprayed there by passing cars.

The fix: Even if you’ve already had plenty of rain, give affected areas several good soakings with a hose: The soil needs extra water to dilute the salt. If the brown parts haven’t greened up by summer, cut them off.

“Typically the entire plant won’t have to go unless it is completely brown,” says David Dailey, president of Birchcrest Tree and Landscape in Rochester, N.Y.

The plant is done for? Replace it with a salt-tolerant species; ask a local nursery for recommendations. If grass doesn’t survive, scrape away the dead patches and reseed.

The cost: Nothing unless you replace the plant. Young specimens don’t cost much. A five-pound bag of grass seed — enough for spot coverage — runs about $15.
