Lawn care for spring is a fun and exciting time for many people, especially those who have a green thumb, for those who may not possess the same; there are a few plants and flowers that work well for enhancing the look of a spring lawn. The sooner colour is infused into a garden; the more beautiful it will look. This also adds to the lush green beauty of a clean healthy lawn.
Dahlias are a beautiful choice for any garden since there are several different types that will not only add wonderful colour but also lovely texture in the garden. They also vary in the size and height, making them a great choice for layering garden beds for colour throughout the season.

For early blooms in spring, primrose is one of the best choices for gardens. Not only do they have striking colours that add a wonderful splash of colour in a garden but they are also fairly easy to care for. They can be planted in gardens or pots, depending on the lawn and garden design for the season.
