How to maintain your lawn

While professional lawn care services can go a long way in ensuring the health and beauty of your lawn, there are also some simple steps that you can take to maintain your lawn in between treatments. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Water your lawn regularly: Watering your lawn regularly is essential to keep it healthy and green. Aim to water your lawn deeply and infrequently, rather than shallowly and frequently, as this can lead to shallow root growth and increased vulnerability to drought.
  • Mow your lawn at the right height: Mowing your lawn at the right height is crucial to promote healthy grass growth and preventing weed growth. Aim to mow your lawn at a height of 2-3 inches, and adjust the height depending on the season and weather conditions.
  • Remove weeds by hand: While professional weed control services can help to keep your lawn free from weeds, it’s also a good idea to remove weeds by hand when you spot them. Be sure to remove the entire weed, including the root, to prevent it from regrowing.
  • Fertilize your lawn regularly: Fertilizing your lawn regularly can help to promote healthy grass growth and improve the overall health of your lawn. Be sure to use the right type of fertilizer for your lawn’s unique needs, and follow the instructions carefully.
  • Aerate your lawn: Aeration is an essential process that helps to promote healthy root growth and improve soil drainage. If you have a small lawn, you can use a manual aerator, or you can hire a professional lawn care provider to perform the service for you.
