Easy Tips for Achieving a Gorgeous Lawn
A lawn is a beautiful bit of nature within a residence, but it can quickly descend to disorder unless regularly tended. Taking preventative measures of lawn maintenance can yield the best results.
Surprisingly, a healthy lawn does not need to require hours of grueling work. Yes, a lawn will require love and attention to achieve health and appear visually appealing, but if you focus on the “when” and “how” you care for your yard, you will achieve greater results with less time.
Mowing the Lawn
Everyone knows that lawn mowing is one of the most basic staples of lawn care. If you have grass, it must be cut. However, did you know there are certain tips and tricks to lawn mowing? For example, make sure to adjust your cutting height to ensure your grass receives enough sunlight. An adjusted cutting height will also get rid of dead, unwanted grass. Also, pay attention to the sharpness of your motor blade. A dull, damaged blade will tear, rather than cut your grass, leaving it damaged. In turn, the damaged grass will require extra care to recover.
Another important aspect of lawn care is watering. However, there are certain rules that should be followed when watering your grass. Though it might seem simple, your lawn requires more than placing a hose out for a few minutes every day. Here are a few tips and tricks:
- It is best to water the lawn for longer but less often so there is enough water to soak into the soil and reach the roots, but not be left stagnant.
- Make sure your lawn receives one to two inches of water every week.
- Early morning is the best time of day to water your lawn (sometime between six and ten a.m.)

Fertilizers and Weed Killers
There is nothing so unsightly as weeds popping up in your lawn. Thankfully, the market is saturated with weed killers and fertilizers. To find the best fertilizer or weed killer, check with your local nursery and always read the label for instructions and safety warnings. The very best time to fertilize your lawn is in the early spring or fall depending on your goals. To develop roots, fertilize in the spring. To repair summer damage, fertilize in the fall. Finally, try to kill weeds in the spring before they have a chance to take root.
If you properly water, mow, and aerate your lawn, focusing on timing and technique, you will have a beautiful, luscious yard in no time! Need some more tips and tricks?
