How do you ensure your home stays looking its best? Well, one thing you can do is to properly maintain your lawn. A well-cared for lawn enhances the look and curb appeal of any home. Once you know these lawn care basics, having the yard of your dreams will be a breeze!

Pay attention to the season

Weather has a huge effect on how your lawn grows. While grasses can flourish in springtime, the heat of summer can sometimes dry them out, and the harsh winter chill can make them brown and lifeless. Keep tabs on the forecast and be sure to water your lawn yourself when there is no call for rain; the grasses need water for nourishment and healthy growth.

Give it a little extra somethin’

Fertilizers, full of plant-friendly nutrients, are essential to keeping your lawn looking green and vibrant. Plants need substances like nitrogen to perform their best, so your lawn is no exception.

Trim it up

Weekly mowing keeps grass height uniform, discourages weeds from running rampant, and makes your lawn’s overall appearance nice and tidy.

Take out the garbage

Weeds can overtake and kill your lawn grasses if left unchecked. Take the opportunity to dig out tough ones, such as dandelions, by the roots in order to keep your lawn protected.

Following these basic steps could mean the difference between a lush, healthy lawn and an unhealthy one. Take care of your home by maintaining your lawn today!
