Keeping your yard and lawn looking great can require some persistence and knowledge. Here are a few yard and lawn care tips that will get your home or commercial property going in the right direction:
- Adjust your mower blade. While you may be tempted to cut your lawn very short so you don’t have to mow as often, a short lawn can invite weeds and other plants to take over. Raise your blade and allow your lawn to thicken up. You’ll love how it looks!
- Recent studies have shown that infrequent watering of grass, plants and trees is much more beneficial than everyday watering.
- Get your soil tested. Grabbing a bag of fertilizer at the store may seem like the best way to feed your lawn. It isn’t unless you are sure you are giving it what it needs. A simple soil test can make all the difference.
- Blow out your beds before you mulch. It may be tempting to simply put mulch over your beds, but that is a mistake. Take the time to blow dead leaves and twigs out of your planting beds and you will ensure that water can get to your plants’ root systems and you won’t harbor mold or mildew near your shrubs or perennials.
