Healthy Lawn, Healthy Life

Healthy Lawn, Healthy Life

While there may not be one magic bullet to having picture perfect landscaping composed of a healthy lawn and stunning specimens of the horticultural world, there are certainly some things that you can do to get your yard well on its way to being the envy of your neighborhood. Naturally, there are a few landscaping mistakes to avoid if you’re hoping to enhance your curb appeal and have a healthy lawn. But it’s actually easier than you might think to get your turf looking terrific.

Nutritional Planning

We all know that a healthy lawn requires healthy soil that will provide it with the right nutrients to grow. If you live in an area that doesn’t have the best soil, however, you’re going to need a little bit of help. Lucky for you, organic fertilizer can easily provide you with a supplement for all those nutritional gaps in the dirt and ensure that you’re properly feeding your lawn.

You’ll also need to stay well hydrated, so your lawn care plan should include regular watering from your sprinklers. Depending on the condition of your soil, the type of grass you have, and the time of year, you’ll need to adjust the length of your watering times as well as their frequency. And remember to be an early bird. Morning sprinklings allow the grass to absorb water before it’s all lost to evaporation. Grass watered in the morning will also have ample time to dry before night, when it becomes more vulnerable accumulating moisture that can eventually cause mold and lead to disease.

Breathe Deep

Healthy lawns need to breathe, so don’t forget to aerate. It’s a simple but important way to open up the soil under your grass so that it can have more access to air, water, and nutrients. Do it in the fall so that when spring rolls around, your grass will be ready to show its appreciation.

Applied Learning

Grass height is also essential to a healthy lawn, so check with a local landscaping service that can advise you on the proper length of your particular type of grass. Even if you don’t hire them for lawn mowing services, you might want to look into their lawn spraying services. The use of a good weed killer and fertilizers can be key in boosting the health of your grass, but timing applications is equally as critical. Spring and summer-time applications are different from those needed in cooler temps and can even vary according to the climate where you live. Get advice that applies to your region as well as the season before you tackle the task.
