Are you stumped when it comes to improving the quality of your lawn? Grass seems to grow everywhere, so why is it so hard to create a lush lawn? Grass can be temperamental, requiring specific care to get it to grow. Here are three tips to help you nourish your grass for a beautiful lawn.
- Seeding. If you have bare patches or thin grass, seeding or over-seeding can help improve the quality of your lawn. Seeding should be done in the spring for the best results.
- Fertilizing and weed control. You need to feed your grass and keep weeds at bay for a healthy lawn. Choose a quality fertilizer and pre/post emergent weed control to nourish your lawn. For proper fertilization, consider soil testing first to get the right fertilizer.
- Watering. You need about ¾ -1 inch of water for most turf grass per week. The best option is infrequent watering, a few times a week. Mornings are the best time for watering.
Unfortunately, not everyone has a green thumb when it comes to lawns. If you are struggling to get your grass to grow, consider hiring a professional landscaper. They can help nurture your lawn and bring it back to life with the proper fertilizing, weed control and mowing schedule, plus other options like thatching or aerating.
Or, if you want to maintain your own lawn, consider new sod. Your landscaper can install a fresh, new lawn that is full and healthy from the beginning. You can start from scratch with a new lawn and use the tips previously mentioned to keep it healthy and thriving for years to come.
