We all would like to have our lawns look the best that they can. They are a great representation of our homes as a whole. Sometimes, however, it can be difficult to figure out what exactly needs to be done to make it look just right. Here are a few tips that might be able to help you care for your lawn in the future.
1. Keep Your Lawn Watered
Although it may seem like an afterthought for some people, lawns need to have water in order to have that luscious green color many of us love. The more that you water, the more that you will need to mow. The more often you mow, the more often that you will need to water. Try to find that perfect balance.
2. Don’t Forget the Fertilizer!
Fertilizer is great for lawns because it helps to add in extra nutrients that may be missing. Early spring is one of the best times of years in many areas of the country to fertilize lawns. If you have plants or trees on your lawn, fertilizer is a must because they steal some of the nutrients away from the lawn.
3. Weed Preventers
Everyone knows how irritating it can be to have a perfect lawn and then spot two or three dandelions growing in plain sight. Weed preventers are able to help you control weeds by preventing their seeds from being able to germinate. If you think of weeds as an illness for your lawn, the weed preventers can act as a vaccine in order to prevent them from taking over.
4. Keep The Blades Sharp
When mowing a lawn, your mower needs to have blades that are sharp enough to cut the grass in a swift motion. If the blades are dull, the grass will be cut with jagged edges that won’t look good and will end up turning brown on the top. This will truly affect the overall look of your lawn. Also remember not to mow your lawn too short! This can cause issues with the roots under your lawn.
