Simple Tips for a Beautiful Lawn

During the growing season, mowing should be done regularly, though the frequency can vary depending on your particular situation. Typically, once-a-week mowing will do the trick. It's important that your mower blade is thoroughly sharpened so that your grass is cleanly cut, rather than torn. You should set your mower so that your grass doesn't get cut below 2 1/2 inches in height. When grass is cut shorter, structural damage may result. And when you cut grass too low, it'll be easier for weeds to take hold. If weeds such as dandelions do take root in your lawn, they should be removed ASAP so they don't get a chance to go to seed.

If your lawn has any glaring bare spots, then you may want to reseed such areas. It's important that you follow the directions on the seed packaging to ensure a strong germination rate. Once it sprouts and starts to take hold, you can apply a nitrogen fertilizer a couple of times during the growing season.

Another important task is to keep your lawn sufficiently watered. Watering is best done early in the morning, which will substantially reduce the amount of water that is lost to evaporation. Early morning watering will also allow your lawn the chance to dry out during the day, which will help to prevent diseases from taking hold. And by setting up your irrigation on an automatic timer, you won't have to get up super early to water your lawn.
