How to Make Your Grass Green and Thick
When you look at your lawn, what do you see?
Do you see bare spots, or signs of grubs and pests?
Do you wish your lawn was thicker and greener?
There are some easy ways you can amplify your lawn’s health and make sure it stays lush and green, even if you’ve had problems with your grass in the past!
Here’s our tips to making sure the lawn is greener on your side of the fence:
- Are you mowing correctly? This might seem like a no brainer, but mowing habits can have a big impact on your lawn’s health. One of the most common mistakes homeowners make is mowing the grass too short. Mowing too short can put unnecessary stress on your lawn and increase the likeliness of weeds.
- Water, water, water! Grass needs the right amount of water at the right time. Watering at night can lead to excess humidity, which makes your turf prime territory for disease development. Under extreme heat lightly water grass to relieve stress on the grass. Watering in the mid-day sun will probably cause the water to evaporate too quickly before reaching the roots, so watering in early morning is your best bet. Water less frequently and long enough to give the grass a good soaking as opposed to shallow watering more often.
- Hire a professional lawn care company to fertilize adequately! Over time, lawns tend to leech nutrients, leaving them deficient. For thicker, greener grass, your lawn needs the right nutrition, and that can be hard to manage on your own. Hiring a professional company to fertilize is the best option because not only do they know the right type of fertilizer to best feed your lawn, but they’ll manage the proper timing and application that can be hard for the average homeowner to achieve.
- Control weeds and pests. Lastly, if you can control weeds, insects, diseases, and other pests, all the above actions will have their best chance to succeed. A lawn care pro can offer solutions such as a combination of pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control tactics to keep weeds at bay. Grub control is also an important service to consider!
