How to Care for your Lawn in Colorado Springs

With sunny and warm summers to windy and cold winters, Colorado Springs weather varies in such a manner that it creates an environment perfect for insects to live in your lawn and shrubs. As certified arborists, we have extensive training, qualified supervisors in lawn with the CDA, and years of experience to ensure we are ready for any lawn problems that may arise. In this blog post, we wanted to share with you some tips and tricks on how to properly care for your lawn.


During the fall and spring time, grass tends to focus on growing and rebuilding strong roots. To help promote healthy roots during the winter, you can use fertilizer with a high-nitrogen mix to build those roots, giving the grass a head start for the spring. Start applying fertilizer to your yard in the early Spring with a heavy winterizer to ensure your healthy lawn lasts long after the winter month’s pass.


Bare spots can be a sight for sore eyes, and even harder to grow grass in. With the extreme temperature changes throughout the year, fall is the perfect time to look at your lawn and see where it can be improved. If you have any bare spots in your grass area, re-seed before the temperatures start to drop low. The same system can be used for the spring time to make sure those bare spots are covered.

Weed Control

Weeds are never welcomed in any lawn, but unfortunately, they sprout up! To best keep weeds away during the spring, start dealing with them in the fall. After heavy rains, weeds can grow over night. Therefore, you want to deal with them sooner rather than later.


Aerating your lawn happens by creating small holes throughout the soil. This allows for oxygen, water, and nutrients to dive deep into the soil to reach the roots of your grass. Aerating is best when the temperatures are warmer.
