The winter holidays are over and it is time to start preparing your lawn for some spring beautification. Everyone wants their lawn to be green, lush, and impressive. However, without proper lawn care, mowing, or knowledge of how to keep a lawn healthy, this goal often remains unaccomplished.
If you want your lawn to be the talk of the neighborhood this spring, make sure to take these four steps that will put your closer to the lawn of your dreams.
1. Mow Your Lawn at the Right Length
Mowing your lawn is essential to its health. However, you can’t just mow at any height in order to get the greener grass that you desire. Your lawnmower has height settings for a reason. Our recommendation is that you cut one-third of your lawn’s height per mowing session. Keep in mind that for every inch of grass that you see, there is an inch of roots below the surface. Cutting your lawn shorter than our recommended height can damage your roots and give your grass that stressed look that isn’t appealing.
Your Frisco lawn professional will be able to help you figure out your lawnmower settings and how to properly mow your lawn for the different times of the year.
2. Avoid Over-Watering Your Grass
Although many homeowners worry about under-watering their lawns, over-watering is also a problem. Not only is it wasteful for the environment, but it also hampers your chances of a green, lush, yard. While a lawn’s water needs really depend on the grass, soil and weather environment, there is still an easy rule-of-thumb to follow. Avoid the risk of over-watering by watering your lawn around an inch of water per week. This will keep your yard looking fresh while also helping you stay eco-friendly with your lawn care practices.
3. Fertilize Your Yard Correctly
Fertilization is important when the end-game requires a green lawn. Our recommendation is a slow-release fertilizer. This will give you the results you need over time that last. If you need help selecting a fertilizer for your lawn, then a local professional can help you figure out what will work best for your grass type.
4. Re-seed Browner Areas of Your Grass
Some brown spots on the lawn can’t be fixed through watering and mowing. You may have to ask your lawn care professional for some seeding tips that can help bring back the green to your grass. The type of seed matters for the region you live in, so some extra help can ensure you get the job done right on the first attempt.
