Lets face it, there is something amazing about riding in a neighborhood looking at all of the well manicured lawns and wondering how they stay so perfect from season to season, while you struggle with weeds and more.
Below is a guide that will assist you in creating lawn envy.
When it comes to lawn care, timing is everything. Here is a rule of thumb to follow to keep your lawn in tip top shape from season to season.
- SPRING-This is the time of the year that you want to mow regularly to prevent cutting more than 1/3 of the grass. Try to keep the lawn at the same height.
- SUMMER- Keep a nice green lawn during the summer time to enjoy family BBQ & some relaxation in the sun. Avoid cutting your grass too short during this time of the year as you want to avoid your grass from losing nutrients from the heat.
- AUTUMN- Ensure that you avoid leaves from piling up and that you aerate your lawn during this time of the year. We want to avoid drainage issues.
- WINTER- I like to think of this time of the year as down time for the lawn. Less is more. This is the time of the year to secure a lawn company, get your lawn tools serviced and to relax after the hard work and diligent from spring to autumn.
I hope that this has shed some light on when to do what. Feel free to comment below and let me know if you have been on target or totally missing the mark for seasonal lawn care.
