Perfect Lawn Care - Tips
At some point we’ve all passed by that perfect lawn – thick, green, beautifully manicured and weed free. We drive by and think to ourselves “They must spend all day working on their lawn.” Or “We’re too busy to spend that kind of time or money on our lawn.” Some homeowners think they lack the knowledge. Others they don’t have a green thumb. All of this couldn’t be further from the truth. Like most things in life, moderation and consistency is the key. In this article, we will go over fertilizing, mowing, watering and insect/disease control. Having a beautiful lawn is easier that you think. We will address key components of every aspect of proper lawn care and look at common misconceptions and myths. Whether you do your own lawn fertilizing or hire a local lawn care company, we will provide you valuable knowledge to help you create your own beautiful lawn.
Dry or liquid? Quick release or slow release? How many applications? How often? With or without weed control? With all the options, this decision can seem daunting. If you do your own lawn fertilizing the only choice is dry. If you plan on using a professional, the answer should be the same.
Proper watering techniques are a key component is creating a beautiful lawn. Like all other aspects of lawn maintenance, moderation and consistency is key. Amount of water, duration per zone, watering days, time of day, soil type and rainfall are all factors deciding how much watering is necessary.
We’ve all heard the recommendations: Cut your lawn high. Mow at a minimum of 3”. You’ll have fewer weeds if you raise the mower deck. Don’t let your lawn overgrow. Why is this? How can mowing height affect crabgrass control? Or make the weed control work better? It’s really quite simple once we break it down.
Lawn Insect Control
There are two types of insects that feed on the lawn that can cause damage to your lawn. Surface feeding insects and root feeding insects. If not controlled these insects can cause serious damage to your lawn. Healthy lawns that are properly maintained will stave off damage even if there is a population of these insects present.
Lawn Disease Control
Lawns that are healthy and well cared for will have little or no signs of disease. When a fungus, mold or patch disease is found in a lawn it is often related to improper maintenance practices. Listed below are poor maintenance practices that can actually CAUSE disease.
