5 Lawn Care Product Recommendations for a Greener, Healthier Lawn, Winona, Minnesota

A beautiful, lush lawn offers more than an eye-catching space for your family to enjoy. It also increases your property’s curb appeal, whether you plan to sell your home now or over the next decade. Keep grass blades looking lovely by using key lawn care products that promote healthy growth and reduce problems related to pest insects, fungus, and invasive plant species.

Use these lawn care products to maintain a gorgeous outdoor space:

  • Fertilizer: Apply the suggested amount of fertilizer for your grass type. Slow release, salt-free fertilizer is generally best to avoid burning your grass. If your lawn features cool-season grasses, remember that applying fertilizer during warm weather will only feed weeds.

  • lawn careWeed Killer: Consider organic weed killers to keep unwanted species to a minimum, such as white vinegar and organic mulch. Chemical weed killers flow into storm drains and subsequently water sources whenever it rains.

  • Insecticide: Reduce the number of pest insects damaging your lawn with an organic insecticide, such as one with NEEM oil. Research which insecticides work best on the pests invading your lawn to prevent spending money on ineffective treatments.

  • Fungicide: Eradicate mushroom growth and brown spots on your lawn with an organic fungicide. Look for one that offers natural insecticide properties if necessary to further protect grass blades.

  • PH Tester: Ensure lawn soil features a healthy pH balance by investing in a quality tester. Adjust it with lime, compost, or gardener’s soil depending on the current level. Soil pH level is ideally between 6.2 to 6.9.
