Keeping your lawn healthy is a great way to not only increase your home’s curb appeal, but it’s a great way to ensure that your home is inviting and enjoyable for you and your family. At Legacy Turf Care, we want to help our customers and community have beautiful, healthy lawns, which is why we’ve curated some of our best lawn maintenance tips for keeping your grass healthy!
Mow Your Lawn Weekly
One of the first lawn care tips to keep in mind is to mow weekly! While it may seem like a no-brainer, maintaining your lawn by mowing regularly is a great way to ensure that it stays green and healthy. When you mow your lawn, you’re keeping the grass uniform and growing evenly, ensuring that all of it is getting the same amount of sunlight and nutrients from water and even fertilizer. This helps to prevent thin patches or brown spots.
Water and Fertilize Properly
Your lawn needs specific nourishment in order to continue growing. Because no lawns live in the same two conditions, the key to keeping your lawn healthy is figuring out the right amount of water and fertilizer your grass needs. Take into account the type of grass you have growing in your lawn, the amount of light, shade, and heat your lawn gets, and how dry or moist your soil is at different times of the day. If you are unsure about watering and fertilizing schedules, you can always call lawn professionals for insight!
Designate a “Pet Bathroom”
One of the many reasons a lawn can suffer from brown patches or unhealthy growth is consistent damage from pet usage. Many pet owners notice that their lawn suffers from being used as a bathroom, and if your dog digs or eats grass, that’s extra damage your grass will need to heal from. One of the best ways to combat this is to train your dog to use just one area of your yard or lawn for their ‘business,’ digging, or grass eating. That way they still can do what they naturally do without harming the overall health of your lawn.
