It uses rhizomes to spread, allowing it to repair itself quickly after compression and wear. Although it grows well in partial shades, its growth is best under direct sunlight, well-drained, and moist soil.

Hartford lawn care tips

Rake your lawn after the snow has melted away to minimize drifting and enhances lawn appearance. You can also hire a Hartford County snow removal company to remove snow. Raking aerates, rejuvenates and enhances water penetration into the soil. Patches and an unhealthy lawn will be least of your worries.


Adding fertilizers makes your lawn grow more healthy and faster. The best time to apply fertilizer in your lawn is during the spring season. When choosing a suitable fertilizer, consider balanced fertilizers or organic compost. Ensure you test your soil before applying any fertilizer.

To be on the safe side, contact Hartford County weed control company. They know the right chemicals and tools to use for weed removal.
