First spring for new lawn, tips?
So last summer I tilled and laid all new sod in my back lawn. Did very well and nothing died. In the fall I spread fall fertilizer.
So now it's spring and wondering if anyone can give me some basic care tips to get it strong for summer? One major concern I have is that we have two small dogs that have gone to the bathroom quite a few times over the winter ( to cold for walks). I shoveled some of it best I could. Any special tips considering that?
Anyways, I plan on getting early spring fertiziler for it. I also will give it a light raking to get some of the left over matted leaves loose. What else should I do? Starting to thaw here in MN finally and will be 70 tomorrow with the snow almost gone (but still very very wet). When should I fertilize and do everything else?
