Five useful tips to help you in your hunt for the perfect lawn.
Regular cutting of the lawn is important because it thickens the grass. Never cutting over 1/3 of the grass off the lawn prevents burn in the heat of the season.
Adding healthy nutrients back in the lawn helps revive the grass and soil. Nutrients are lost over time and if not cared for before you know it you grass will be dead or overtaken by pesky weeds.
If you want a lawn that is lush and green all summer, watering is important. When the heat of the sun dehydrates all the water from the soil that is when you jump in and save the day. Grass needs water to survive!
4. Weed Control
With persistence and using the right technique, the battle against weeds in your lawn can be won.
5. Aeration and Dethatching
The grass roots need air in order to breathe. Aerating and dethatching in the fall or spring allow the soil to breathe. Dethatching removes all the old thatch and grass left over throughout the years. Aerating provides the grass precious air and water deep down to the roots.
