For those who happily obsess over their lawn and garden, the time of year this giddy bunch eagerly anticipates is here - spring. But, why wait until the weather fully cooperates? Now is the time to head to the shed to check tools, inspect your lawn and garden, and assess what winter has left behind. Troy-Bilt® (, a leading manufacturer of outdoor power equipment, has put together this quick reference list for lawn and garden enthusiasts. For the Yard: -As the weather warms, watch for melting snow. -Heavy piles of melting snow on your lawn will create patches which will be especially vulnerable to spring lawn diseases like snow mold. Be sure to spread snow evenly to help speed melting. -Shop now for lawn care supplies such as fertilizer and seed. Retailers are well stocked and you'll find the best selection if you start early. -Don't wait until you need them - check your garden and lawn tools now to see if they are in working order. Sharpen the blades on your mower and replace any tools that are beyond repair. -Test your soil. Although you may be excited to get planting, it will be a much more fruitful year if you take a few steps back and treat your soil for any nutrient deficiencies before planting. -Prep for regular mowing. The lawn grows more rapidly in the spring, so set blades high for the first cutting then gradually lower the height with each mow - and never cut more than one-third of the blade of grass off to ensure a healthy and lush lawn. -Re-seed bare or damaged patches of your lawn as grass grows best in early spring.
