How to Prepare
Your Lawn
for the
Spring Season
Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t have to be a lot of work, provided you are willing to
get ready for it ahead of time. A lot of people don’t even give their lawn a second
thought until they’re well into the spring season, by which point it’s already growing
and they have to struggle to keep up with it.
by Brian Jenkins There are a number of things that you can do before spring begins in order to get your lawn ready for warmer weather, ensuring that you’ll have a great lawn without
nearly as much work as it would take to achieve later.
One of the first things that you can do is to take advantage of retailers who put out
their lawn care supplies early. Shop around for a good grass seed and lawn fertilizer, choosing a fertilizer that has slightly less nitrogen because you’re going to want
to be encouraging root growth instead of top growth at first. High nitrogen content
will encourage your grass to grow tall quickly, but it will be at the expense of a solid
root system which can lead to problems with durability and your grass being able to
get the water and nutrients that it needs as spring turns to summer.
A time-release fertilizer can work well in the spring, since it will make sure that your
grass gets needed nutrients each time that it rains. Choose a grass seed that has
qualities and color that you want, and if possible pick one that is resilient against
crabgrass and other weeds so that it won’t be choked out if they start to grow. Some
grass seeds even come with a coating on the seeds themselves which helps to kill
off unwanted plants while not harming the grass itself.
Next, take the time to get out early and start cleaning up your lawn. Remove any
dead limbs that might be lying around since a winter snowstorm and get rid of any
other debris that you might have let stay too long. Clean up any leftover leaf piles or
anything else that might impede the growth of your grass in certain places. If you’re
planning on gardening or maintaining flower beds you should use this opportunity to
clean them up as well so that you don’t have to do your entire cleanup when you get
ready to start gardening or planting flowers.
It’s also important that you spend a little bit of time doing needed maintenance
to your lawn care equipment in advance of when you’re actually going to need
it. Change the oil and sharpen the blades of your lawnmower, running it through
a thorough maintenance check to ensure that everything is going to work like it
Clean up and check any weed trimmers or other equipment that you might have as

well, making sure that
they’re in top working
condition and that any
vital fluids are full. Most
people wait until they’re
about to start cutting their
grass to check out their
equipment, but waiting
can mean that you won’t
be as thorough with your
checks and you can end up with uneven cuts or
unnecessary wear and tear on your lawnmower
and other equipment.
If you have a late snow, make sure that there
aren’t any patches of your yard which remain
under a drift of snow after everything else has
melted. Not only can it stunt growing grass or
cause yellowed patches in your yard but the
extra moisture could set you up for mold or other
problems as your lawn tries to get started growing. Try to break up any larger mounds of snow
as they melt to keep this from happening.
Once you’ve got all of your equipment ready and
you have the seed and fertilizer that you need to
reseed your lawn, make sure that you choose the
right time to plant your grass seed. While some
people claim that the fall is the best time to reseed your lawn, you can have wonderful results
from grass seed that’s planted in the early spring.
Make sure that you scatter your seed evenly,
doing so after the risk of snowfall or extreme low
temperatures have passed.
Late March to mid-April can be an ideal time to
seed your lawn in the spring if you live in the
northern hemisphere, being late enough in the
year to avoid most freezing dangers yet still giving ample time for the grass to begin growing
before the summer. Try not to over-water your
lawn early on, as letting the soil dry out between
rain and watering can result in deeper roots and
a healthier lawn.
Some folks make you feel at home,
others make you wish you were.

Swing into Spring:
Five Easy Ways to Welcome
Warm Weather
Blooming bulbs and Spring breezes signal that warmer weather is
on the way. Sure, many of us will
do an all-out session of Spring
cleaning, but even small, simple
jobs can bring the season’s freshness inside.
Shake the winter doldrums out of your organized home
with these five easy ideas to swing into Spring:
the new season, create a good home by cleaning out
the remains of winter.
Make a quick check of expiration dates of food stored in
refrigerator or pantry, and toss expired foodstuffs.
Look sharp for the last survivors of holiday gift baskets!
If you haven’t eaten the smoked salmon spread or
served the Texas Hot Chili Mix by now, donate these
treats to the food bank, so they’re enjoyed by others.
Give vegetable storage areas special attention. Bearded
carrots, limp celery and shriveled onions can be tossed
into a crockery slow-cooker overnight to make vegetable stock--or consign these items to the compost bin.
Please see “Welcome Spring” cont. on page 5
Let the Light Shine: Wash the Windows!
Minutes continued from page 3
Sunny days look brighter through clean windows, so
tackle the grime that winter storms have left behind on
interior and exterior windows now.
Whether you’re an advocate of the diluted-vinegar-and
newspapers approach, or prefer to wield a squeegee
like the pros do, choose a bright, still day to clean exterior windows.
Freed from their dark winter coats, clean windows spill
sunshine inside, raising everyone’s mood!
Board Motion: Bob Klaeren motioned to approve a write off
in the amount of $184.26 for TAA46A, and a write-off in the
amount of $270.00 for TAA54A, Bill Burlein seconded. Motion was passed by unanimous voice vote.
Management provided a list of January newcomers. Board
Directors are encouraged to call on newcomers in their respective areas.
Finance Committee: No report.
Maintenance Committee: Les Lavin reported that all of the
holiday lights are down. The Board acknowledged thanks to
Peter Bakas, Lou Beccavin, Joe Broda and Les Lavin for their
dedicated efforts on this project.
Communications Committee: No report
Parks Committee: Pat Coughlin-Schillo requested three
more Board volunteers to sign up to attend Lisle Park District
Board meetings; Lou Beccavin, Christy McGovern and Roger
Sassen volunteered. Pat will provide a list of monthly assignments to all of the Board members. Julie LaFond will attend
the February Lisle Park District Board meeting.
Nominating Committee: No report
Old Business/New Business: None
Board Member Area Reports: None

by unanimous voice vote at 7:59 p.m.

Respectfully Submitted,
Paula Gleason, Recording Secretary, Signature on File
Catch the Breeze: Open Windows on a Warm Day
Cold weather brings shut windows and tightly-closed
doors--which can create a build-up of stale odors in any
home. When you live with them, your nose learns to
ignore them, but nothing whispers “Spring is here!” like
a freshly-aired house.
Solution: let breezes blow! Air out the house one sunny
afternoon to bring Spring’s freshness inside. Opening
doors and windows to catch a breeze will chase away
old cooking smells and any stale or musty odors that
have built up during the winter months.
After an hour or so, close windows and doors, then tackle surfaces with an electrostatic cleaning cloth to capture
any dust or pollen that’s settled out in the breeze. Run
the vacuum cleaner to remove dust from floors--and
enjoy the Springtime freshness!
Blooming Wonder: Bring the Season Inside
Even if the budget won’t stretch to regular purchases of
cut flowers, Spring’s blooming make it easy to spark up
a home with fresh blossoms.
Cut small branches from a flowering tree, or gather
ready-to-bloom daffodils and tulips from the garden.
Displayed simply, in a tall water glass, vase or mason
jar, they’ll add a splash of Spring color and fragrance to
your home.
Fresh Start: Clean Out the Refrigerator
The arrival of a new season is a good signal to clean
out stored food in refrigerator and pantry. As farmers’
markets and roadside stands open to offer fresh food for

Cull the Cuddly: Wind Down the Winter Warmers
Fall brings no greater pleasure than pulling out fleecy
sweats, flannel pajamas and warm blankets--but by
season’s end, these cuddly favorites are frequently worse
for wear.
As warm weather approaches, take a hard look at the
family’s cold-weather bedding and favorite winter warmGT WEBSITE :
ers. Separate out the stained sweats, pilled flannel
sheets and shrunken loungewear for recycling or donation.
As you return winter bedding and clothing to closet
storage areas, make a quick list of any needed replacements. Look alert! End-of-season clearance sales
make it easy AND cheap to replace worn-out linens
and faded clothes.
