How To Care For Your Lawn

If you love your lawn, it’s only natural that you would want to give it the proper care to help give it a healthy appearance.  After all, your landscape is one of the first things that people will notice when they arrive at your home.  Your lawn can either make or break your curb appeal.

Grooming

If you have weeds, remove them with the proper tools or by pulling them out of the ground manually.  An important part of grooming your lawn is mowing it regularly to give it a manicured appearance.

Feed Your Lawn

Yes, even your yard gets hungry and what it craves more than anything is water.  Most experts recommend that one thorough watering each week is preferable over a light misting every other day.  When it comes to feeding your lawn, the best time of year to fertilize is during the spring.  This is when your lawn begins to grow and its beautiful shade of green begins to come alive, which is why it’s important to make sure that it has all of the nutrients that it needs to enjoy the warm months ahead.

Treating Bald Or Bare Spots

What happens when your lawn begins to dry out or shows signs of brown spots?  It could mean a number of things, but treating it properly will help to get your yard sparkling again.  One way of doing this is by planting seeds so that new grass can grow.  Before doing this, make sure to loosen the soil so that the seeds will have a healthy start.  Your other option is to bring in sod, which is commonly used for larger areas that are in need of a quick fix.  Just as you would loosen the soil for seeding, it’s important to do the same for sod so that it can properly attach to the surface of the lawn.

Pest Control

Your lawn is a reflection of your home, but it’s also a potential haven for pests.  It’s important to pay close attention to the plants and/or flowers that you choose for your landscape as certain types can deter pests, while others may actually attract them.  If in doubt, ask a local gardening expert or a representative at your local home improvement store for more information on this topic.  If you develop a pest problem, there are products designed to protect your landscape and permanently rid the pests of your space.
