Letting You in on a Little Secret of Proper Lawn Care
Occasionally, homeowners may be reluctant to care for their lawn correctly because they think it will require hard work and time. However, they will understand and practice proper lawn care for a green, healthy and beautiful lawn as time passes. Watch the video below for more info.
Lawn care is not complex, but it does require some effort. Here are two secrets to proper lawn care:
1. Mow High
Mowing high is one of the secrets to growing a lush, beautiful lawn. The taller grass holds more moisture and shades the roots better than short grass. The yard will need less water during the hot summer months and will remain greener longer into fall. Additionally, taller grass can grow deep roots that strengthen it against disease and drought. Generally, you shouldn’t mow your lawn more than one-third of the grass blade at a time.
2. Keep It Sharp
The second secret is to keep the mower blades sharpened. Dull blades tear the grass instead of cutting it cleanly, leading to brown tips and damage that can leave your lawn susceptible to unwanted and unsightly looks. Don’t hesitate to call home for more details!
