Based on the weather of the past two previous seasons, it is expected for many lawn owners to battle a yard full of weeds. But have no fear, there are many ways to keep your lawn looking new. A couple of ways including actually using less fertilizer and letting the grass grow longer than usual, so that it’s root development will not be compromised. These are some great ways to keep the lush lawn you deserve.
- If the lush lawn you enjoyed all summer long is being overtaken by crabgrass and other weeds, join the club. A mild winter and wet spring have made for a particularly brutal weed season in many parts of the country.
- Fall is always the best time to fortify turfgrass, and this year more than ever. It’s also a great time to rent lawn care equipment, including mowers, tractors, and string trimmers. Keep these tips in mind as you take back your lawn.
- The five applications that fertilizer companies sometimes recommend is overkill. Your lawn will probably thrive with just one or two applications, especially if you mulch clippings when mowing, rather than bagging them.
