With spring in full bloom, the sun is shining, the flowers are blossoming, and your grass is… well, it’s there. Let’s face it: you may have bigger fish to fry than focusing on the quality of your home’s grass. But looking at right now, it could use a little bit of attention to match the vibrant manner of everything else around it.
But what is great about grass is that you can always make it greener without having to venture to the other side. With a little bit of time and patience, you can start seeing results and provide your home with an alive and well grassy yard. With this in mind, here are just a few tips to implement to get a more lively lawn.
Just like how we need to eat to thrive, so does your grass. When you treat your grass like a human and realize what it needs, you will understand the importance of providing it the nutrients required to live. This is where fertilizer comes into play, as most bags will have the atypical nutrients that keeps grass living. Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium all have major impacts on it, so getting an adequate amount is an easy way to bring life back to your grass.
Remove Unwanted Pests and Weeds
Perhaps the color of your grass is already a lush green and is relatively healthy. But take a closer look. Those spots with crabgrass, weeds, and destroyed patches from pests are making your lawn look like an atrocity. When you take notice of these portions, it is important to get down and dirty to remove these weeds and apply fertilizer and weed killer solutions to prevent them from growing back. As for insects and other pests, it would be in your best interest to find a company that works with pest control to remove these invaders from your lawn.
Keep Your Lawn Hydrated
Just like us humans have to eat, we also need to make sure we are getting water in our system as much as we can. The same, of course, can be said for your grass, too. For areas that are used to receiving rainfall on a regular basis, you can rest easy knowing Mother Nature is taking care of your grass.
As for areas that may be subject to droughts, it will be on you to make sure a system is in place to keep your grass hydrated. Whether you water it yourself or set up a sprinkler, keeping up to date with your grass’ water intake is a simple way to see more vibrance out of your lawn.
