Are you disappointed with the color of your lawn or the state of your landscaping this year? We get it. There’s not always enough time to dedicate hours of your day or week to lawn care. If you want a lush, green lawn next spring, we have a few ideas that can help you achieve your goal starting today.
3 Lawn Care Tips for Your Home
Get Rid of Lawn Pests
Lawn pests can ruin the look and health of your lawn. Ants build dirt mounds in the grass, and chinch bugs cause dead patches everywhere. If you want a healthier lawn next spring, it’s important to eliminate turf pests in the soil and around the plants. You can always use chemical insecticides to kill the pests, but it’s not always safe to do if you’re not experienced with pest control products. Whether you or a professional kill the pests, your lawn will recover from the damage and spring back to life once they’re gone.
Spread Grass Seed on Your Lawn
Reseeding is a great solution for growing new grass over your existing turf. It’s easy to do, too. Purchase some grass seed and a walk-behind spreader and disperse the seeds over the lawn. Taking some time to prep your lawn beforehand will yield better results, such as removing thatch buildup and aerating the soil. With regular watering, the seeds will sprout new grass and make your lawn look better than ever.
Keep Up with Routine Lawn Maintenance
Not everyone has the time or tools to perform routine lawn maintenance, but it’s an important step in creating a healthy, vibrant lawn. Dedicate at least 30 minutes on the weekend to weed control and watering. If you don’t have the time, consider setting up a sprinkler system to prevent dry, brittle grass. Without a maintenance schedule, your lawn will suffer and continue to underwhelm you next spring and summer. We can set you up with a routine program to keep your lawn looking its best no matter the season.
