5 Easy Lawn Care Tips, Charlotte, North Carolina

Your lawn is an extension of your home, and it should reflect as much. However, maintaining a pristine landscape requires long, hard work, especially if you live on a sprawling North Carolina lot. If you need professional help with lawn care, turn to Killingsworth Environmental Home Services in Charlotte. In the meantime, consider these five simple tips for maintaining your beautiful lawn once their work is done.

5 Easy Lawn Care Tips

1. Take A Proactive Approach

Instead of waiting for weeds to sprout and trying to eliminate them after they’ve grown, take a preventative approach. To stop them before they even germinate, spray a pre-emergent herbicide in early spring.

2. Mow Frequently

lawn careIt may be tempting to let your grass grow long and then cut it short so you can go as long as possible between mowings. However, this is an ill-advised strategy. For healthy grass, never cut more than one-third of its length in a single mowing.

3. Sharpen Your Mowing Blade

If your mower’s blade is dull, it will tear the grass instead of cutting it cleanly, resulting in rough edges that look more brown than green. Sharpen your mowing blade at least once every season, and replace it as needed.

4. Water Grass In The Morning

When you water your grass in the morning, the sun will allow it to dry at a healthy rate. However, if you water your grass at night, the moisture will remain on the blades too long, potentially leading to disease.

5. Nourish Your Lawn

Grass needs nitrogen and other nutrients to thrive. Apply a blend of slow- and fast-release fertilizers in the spring and summer to keep your grass healthy and vibrant all season long.

The above tips are excellent if you already have a lawn that you love. If you’re less than satisfied with your grass, Killingsworth Environmental Home Services in Charlotte, NC, can help.
