A green lawn doesn’t just look good, it’s a key component in having great curb appeal. Knowing how to take care of your lawn ensures its longevity and overall health.
One of the most important aspects of lawn care is making sure that your lawn regularly gets all the nutrients and water it needs. This means knowing the best time to apply lawn fertiliser.
Of course, to have an optimal lawn, you also need to take into consideration things other than just lawn fertiliser.
Make sure that you are trimming your lawn on a regular basis so that it continues to grow. Typically, this means mowing it every 1-2 weeks, depending on the season. You don’t want to cut it too short as it will stunt the growth and having it mowed when it is already too long can cause just as much damage.
You also need to ensure that you are watering your lawn on a schedule. Water can be a vital component in lawn care, especially during hot summer months when the grass needs that much more moisture to survive. In terms of watering, it is more important to water deeply and less frequently than to water it every day for a few minutes. The deeper, longer watering times ensures that the roots take well and grow deeply giving the grass stronger roots and the ability to tap into moisture further in the soil.
