A beautiful lawn can add to your home’s beauty and impress the neighbors. But with heat and the dry season, lawn maintenance can be challenging. How do you keep your yard healthy and green? Here, Wisdom Industries in Aiea, HI, shares some helpful tips.
5 Easy Tips for Lawn Maintenance
Like every other living organism, your lawn requires certain nutrients that it can’t always get from the soil. Fertilizing replenishes nitrogen, potassium, phosphorous, sulfur, and more. For natural fertilizer, leave grass clippings on your lawn after mowing. But for optimal results, invest in a fertilizer mix and distribute it over your lawn a few times a year.
Regular watering is essential for your lawn to thrive, but this chore can take up quite a bit of time. Install irrigation systems and you won’t have to worry about remembering to head out in the heat with a sprinkler. Irrigation will provide just the right amount of moisture for your lawn.
Soil needs oxygen to produce the nutrients that your lawn needs and aeration is an easy way to accomplish that. Simply punching holes in your lawn can make it greener and healthier.
4. Control Weeds
A healthy lawn will provide its own weed control much of the time, but you may need to apply an herbicide every now and then. Some of the more stubborn weeds can get through even the best lawn defenses and quickly take over. Keep a close eye on your yard and act quickly to remove pesky weeds starting to sprout.
Proper mowing techniques will help your lawn continue to grow healthy and beautiful. Never cut grass blades more than one third their length to avoid stressing them out. Make sure your mower’s blade is nice and sharp too for a clean cut.
