Helpful Tips for a Beautiful Lawn

Helpful Tips for a Beautiful Lawn

When your lawn turns brown or becomes overgrown, it can make your whole property appear run-down. But with fresh green grass that isn't more than a few inches tall, you'll have an attractive setting for your home. A well-kempt lawn makes it feel all the more welcoming when you come home from work each day, allowing you to better enjoy your time off the clock. At South Valley Landscaping, we provide local lawn maintenance that will keep your yard looking lush and tidy. Our experienced crew takes great pride in giving homeowners beautiful landscaping.

Tips for an Attractive Lawn

You'll want to mow often, and a weekly mow is often a good plan, though this can vary with the weather and the rate at which your grass is growing. It's best to sharpen your mower blade for each growing season, which will help to give your lawn a clean-cut look. A dull blade can leave your grass looking more torn than cut. When mowing, it's best to keep the grass at least 2 ½ inches tall. If you cut the grass shorter, you could actually damage it. Cutting the grass especially low will also give weeds a better chance to grow up and go to seed. Common weeds, like dandelions, should always be removed as soon as possible so that they don't spread further. There are tools available that are designed specifically to get dandelions out of the ground with their entire taproot.

Of course, to keep your lawn nice and green, you'll need to be regularly watering. For a couple of reasons, it's best to water early in the morning. This will minimize the amount of evaporation that occurs, helping to keep your lawn sufficiently watered while keeping your water bill down. Also, by watering in the early morning, the grass will have the chance to fully dry out before the next night, which decreases the chance of disease. For consistent and convenient watering, you'll want to have your irrigation set up automatically on a timer.

If there are any bare patches in your lawn, you can reseed that area. Just make sure you choose the right type of grass seed and follow its particular instructions for optimal germination and growing. And to encourage strong growth, you can apply a nitrogen fertilizer a couple of times during the season, as long as the grass is already established and growing.
