7 Easy Tips for Getting a Beautiful Lawn This Summer

For many homeowners, keeping your lawn in tip-top shape throughout the summer can be incredibly time consuming. But it can also be a labor of love for those who want to boost their home’s curb appeal.

Below are tips from Better-Lawn-Care.com and Twin Cities landscape company

Parkway Lawn Services for keeping your yard looking beautiful all summer long:

  1. Take it easy on the soil at the beginning of the season. Let the soil thaw and dry out before beginning your spring lawn care chores.
  2. Tune up your lawn mower. Sharpen mower blades, and change the oil, spark plugs and filters.
  3. Mow low to remove the dead grass tops to give new leaves the sunlight they need to grow.
  4. Aerate. Aeration can help: reduce soil compaction, control thatch, stimulate new root growth and improve water, air and nutrient filtration.
  5. Overseed bare areas to spur new growth. Grass seed will start to germinate when soil temperatures reach 50 degrees Fahrenheit, so get your seeding done early.
  6. Get crabgrass under control. If you had crabgrass last year, you’ll see it again this year so consider using a preemergence herbicide in the spring. This will prevent weed seeds from germinating.
  7. Water when the weather gets warm and dry. The spring is usually wet enough to ensure your lawn is healthy.
