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
- 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.
- Tune up your lawn mower. Sharpen mower blades, and change the oil, spark plugs and filters.
- Mow low to remove the dead grass tops to give new leaves the sunlight they need to grow.
- Aerate. Aeration can help: reduce soil compaction, control thatch, stimulate new root growth and improve water, air and nutrient filtration.
- 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.
- 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.
- Water when the weather gets warm and dry. The spring is usually wet enough to ensure your lawn is healthy.
