Maintenance Tips For A Healthy Lawn

lawn careA lawn that is well maintained during the entire season takes on a crucial role in the life of any homeowner. It helps boost the value of any home and making the house more attractive to all who pass by regularly. The important key for any beautiful lawn is consistency when it comes to lawn care, like mulching, mowing, as well as seeding. Most homeowners find, however, that keeping up with this kind of consistent lawn care could be time consuming and they tend to not go through with it.

Simple Yet Effective Lawn Care Tips

Saturation is important to maintaining your lawn’s health regularly.

A lawn has to be watered a few days every week and check to determine how much water the soil and the grass are getting. The water must dampen the soil beneath the grass to a depth of around 6 inches to ensure that the roots are getting the right saturation.

Fertilizer must be used early in the spring and late in the fall to maintain the grass as well as the soil.

Fertilizers contain nutrients that can help make the grass stronger against outside elements like insufficient water as well as stamping from feet or other heavy resources. All homeowners must consult their lawn care specialist to know the kind of fertilizer that must be used for every season and the amount that has to be laid down equally across their lawn.

Weeds, crab grass, and pests should be treated as soon as possible.

These outside sources will cause problems to your lawn and won’t clear up until it is given proper attention. Most lawn and hardware stores will have different materials and products that can get rid of these nuisances and create a layer of protection for any potential attacks in the future.

Use a lawn mower so grass clippings remain on the grass after mowing.

Grass clippings could filter their way back down into the lawn and the soil and give additional food as well as nutrients that could further enrich soil and also promote healthy growth.

Be sure that all lawn mowers are correctly maintained during lawn care season.

Blades tend to feel the wear and tear of the season and become dull over time. A dull blade could tear up soil and grass from the ground instead of mowing the grass correctly. Check the sharpness of all blades of your lawn mower after every use and fix or replace them when required.

Treat the bare spots that occur over time.

The start and end of every lawn season often leave bare spots that might have succumbed because of the effects of Mother Nature or due to over saturation. These areas must be correctly maintained during the spring with fertilizer and soil dispersion at the start of each season so that there is enough time for seeds to grow. The exact same procedure must be followed in the months of fall so the seeds could be correctly laid in the ground to prepare for normal growth once spring comes.

Mow and edge the whole lawn evenly.

This particular step in Myrtle Beach lawn care is important when it comes to giving a pleasant looking grass and preventing pest infestation or weed growth on certain areas due to over saturation.

Edge or mulch any areas that should not be cut like flower beds and trees.

This will help in lessening your time when mowing the lawn and avoiding accidents that could tear up the blades of your lawn mower or edging machine.

Don’t mow the grass the same way all the time.

Many lawn care experts alternate between various patterns for mowing to encourage irrigation to every part of the soil on a consistent basis after every cut.
