In fact, that is what this blog is about!
We want to make sure we supply you with as much information as possible so that you can provide the essentials to rejuvenate your lawn and bring it back to its healthiest state to grow and prosper this spring and into the summer.

As always, Marathon Lawn Care and Services is here for all your lawn maintenance needs and can aid and support you on all the required services you need to rejuvenate your lawn.
What types of services can be done to rejuvenate my lawn?
There are a plethora of services that you can do that will support the rejuvenation of your lawn. All these services will bring your lawn back to its healthiest form and provide an environment that encourages growth, and will allow your lawn to blossom. Note that the extent to which these services need to be done is based on your lawn’s overall condition and will not be the same for everyone. The following services are vital to the rejuvenation of your lawn:
- Seasonal Cleanup (Spring)
- Removing of Weeds
What you may notice from that list of services is that the process of rejuvenating your lawn is not an easy task. Lucky for you, Marathon Lawn Care provides all of these services. And hiring a professional is a crucial step to ensure that these services are done properly, and you can, in fact, reach your goal of rejuvenating your lawn. Because, unfortunately, if one of these services is done incorrectly, you will not have a fully healthy lawn for the spring and summer. So make sure you call us today, and we can help you get started!
When should I schedule my spring cleanup service and lawn maintenance?
The short answer is sooner rather than later. The first step to rejuvenation is a spring cleanup. If you get a spring seasonal cleanup, it will clean up your lawn and get you ready for the rest of the services that need to be done. Most of the other services can not be done until the cleanup is complete.
Raking or dethatching is part of the cleanup process and, again, is based on your lawn. You want to make sure that all debris, leaves, and decayed or diseased parts of your lawn are removed. By removing all of that, you are letting your lawn breathe its first breath in months. And with that breathe, the rejuvenation process has begun.
What is the best way to remove weeds on my lawn?
Once you are done with the seasonal cleanup and/or raking, it will make it easier for you to spot the weeds on your lawn. Once you spot the weeds on your lawn, you will want to pull them out as you see them. When pulling the weeds out, you will want to pull them out by hand and try to get the entire weed out, root and all to ensure they do not return. If you have a tremendous amount of weeds on your property or you are incapable of pulling the weeds out one by one, you have to then do some research on herbicide or weed killer. Make sure you choose the right herbicide or weed killer for your specific lawn needs and one that is safe for children and pets.
When should I fertilizer my lawn?
You should fertilize your lawn in the spring. Fertilizing your lawn is an essential part of your lawn’s rejuvenation process. You want to fertilize when your lawn’s roots are open, and it can get all the nutrients it needs.
When you fertilize your lawn, you are allowing your lawn to grow and maintain its health. Fertilizing will also enhance your lawn’s overall appeal by bringing out a vibrant green color that is the symbolic look of a healthy lawn. Please note that there are many different types of fertilizer, so, just like herbicide, make sure you do your research and ultimately choose the right fertilizer for your specific lawn needs.
When should my lawn be fully healthy again?
May is the goal. May seems far away, but it will be here faster after all these services are done than you think. May is also the recommended time for your first “cut” or mow of the season. We walked you through all the steps to bring your lawn back to health and allow it to grow and be healthy
Now that your lawn is growing, it means that you will have to mow or “cut” your lawn once it reaches its correct height. Once you can mow, the rejuvenation process is complete, and you have succeeded!
Remember that you want to ensure that your lawn keeps its proper height when it comes to mowing. By maintaining its proper height, you make sure your lawn stays healthy and has that green color throughout the spring and summer seasons!
The overall process we walked you through in this blog will rejuvenate your lawn and increase the overall value of your property.
