Use These Top 3 Tips To Make Your Lawn Healthier
We all want to have a nice, green lawn in front of our homes to rival those of our neighbors. The right landscaper can help you fix a broken lawn.
1. Remove Weeds From Lawn
All lawns will have weed problems, but, you should pull weeds regularly to maintain the health of the grass. Weeds sap important nutrients from the soil the grass is planted in and can drastically affect the healthiness of both the soil and grass. Use an herbicide to handle extreme cases of weeds, however, a regular weed puller or hoe is fine to use in most cases. Keep in mind with herbicides that they must be used at the right time of year.
2. Keeping Soil Healthy and Ready to Facilitate
Much like your house, your lawn needs a good solid foundation to maintain its health and integrity. Without healthy soil, you cannot possibly have healthy grass and that’s the end of the story. You can improve soil quality by spreading organic material around your lawn, and requires tilling. Alternatively, proper aeration and planting will also improve soil quality. Other garden plants though, will require mulch to increase the richness of the soil they are planted in. Mulch can help with not only the health of your lawn, but can additionally drastically improve the looks of it as well.
3. Consultation and Services From a Landscaping Company
