How to Prepare my Yard for Lawn Care in Wisconsin


There are many things to do to prepare your lawn for the hot summer, all of which will promote a healthy and green lawn. The WI Labor Men crew performs all of the services we will be discussing today, so if you have any further questions, feel free to reach out! (262-955-9801)

First things first, once the snow starts to melt you will have a better look at your property and your lawns needs will appear.

WI Labor Men start off with a Spring Clean Up, which entails of blowing the lawn and flower beds of all leaves, sticks and debris hidden from the long Wisconsin winters.

When performing a Spring Clean Up, WI Labor Men also like to give all your hedges and bushes a trim, therefore debris can be hauled away together. We also suggest to do a gutter blowing as well, it is best to perform all services at once so you only have to clean your yard once, less fees in travel and time spent cleaning up if you do it yourself.

After your yard is clean of all leaves, sticks, debris, and all plant life has been trimmed to its specific needs, you are ready for the next step!

Does your grass look matted down? Or is there a layer of dead grass? If this is the case, you need to Power Rake (dethatch). This will pull out dead grass that would otherwise get in the way of new growth.

After Power Raking, you should think about Aerating. This will ensure that your lawn gets the nutrients necessary for its growth. Core Plug aerating creates small holes in your lawn, letting water down to the deep roots. WI Labor Men offer aerating and power raking packages.

Once you've completed all the steps above, your lawn is ready to be fertilized and routinely maintained!
