Everyone wants a lush, green lawn and why shouldn’t you! It makes our homes look wonderful and more appealing and makes any homeowner feel better about their property. So if you have a lawn we’re sure you’ll want to do whatever you can to make sure that you have beautiful grass year after year.
There are a few things that need to be done to maintain that perfect, green, lush lawn that anyone who walks past your house will look at your lawn with envy and admiration.
What will you need:
- Rake (plastic or metal)
- Spray of your choice
- Grass seed
- Lawn mower without a bag attachment
Make sure your lawn is cut as short as it can be without being unhealthy. Remove any debris such as old leaves and grass but make sure you do not expose the soil by cutting your lawn too short.
Spray your lawn with the spray you choose but please do ensure that you follow instructions on the label. If you’re not sure which sprayer to use then please feel free to contacts us at [email protected] Then wait 24 hours.
Make openings throughout your lawn which will allow your grass to be able to take up all the water that it can.
Next spread your grass seed as appropriate following the given advice. It is suggested that you use plenty of seed so that you get even coverage and lush growth.
Spread your chosen fertilizer on your newly seeded lawn.
Water the lawn for 20 minutes, three times a week. This will help especially in the summer when water is more scarce but make sure you’re not wasting any!
Cut your lawn at least once a week, but no more than twice a week. This will help the lawn to look healthy and not overgrown. If you do not have a bag attachment for your mower, then you could use a rake to rake up the grass cuttings. This helps with appearance and not smother the grass growing below it.
