Preparing For Lawn Care 2021


Check out what’s happening at Ryan Knorr Lawn Care!

This week, preparations for the upcoming lawn season are in full swing. The snow cover is starting to melt here in Iowa which means we are getting the first look at the lawn before it comes out of dormancy.

Of course, the deep green shades of spring aren’t quite here yet, but it won’t be long now. Tune in this weekend on Youtube to look at the lawn with me as I do an initial inspection for evidence of winter vermin activity and the presence (or hopefully lack thereof) of snow mold damage. 

What can we do while we wait for spring to bring the turf back to life? One thing to think about is whether or not use of a pre-emergent will benefit your lawn. More about that in the video below.


If you’re interested in gardening, you may also be staring outside at an empty plot of land dreaming of the bounty that you’ll be harvesting or the colors you’ll be enjoying in the upcoming growing season. The good news is, depending on what you want to grow, you may be able to get your hands in the dirt now by starting some of the seeds indoors.

In this video, my wife, Kelsey, talks about the steps she takes to design her garden for the year and what kinds of things to think about as you begin gathering your seeds and garden supplies for the year.

The regular stream of videos will be returning very soon so make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss anything. Thanks for watching and following along!

    Hello, We’re in MN and looking for same issues – snow and vermin damage. Love your enthusiasm and work. I’m keen on over dressing, leveling, over-seeding and new shaded lawn in backyard. Many challenges in a Towny HOA. Can’t wait to have my own yard! Love your videos – keep it up! Thanks, Gabe

    Getting prepped for the mowing season out here in SD. Love the production quality and content of all your videos! Wondering if you ever apply any kind of bug control in either the granular or ready-to-spray forms? Is this stuff going to affect preemergents or seed germination?

      I don’t really use anything for bugs but it would not affect your pre-emergent or seeding. Always check the product label to make sure on your specific product but you should be good to go.
