This blog goes over a few important tips to keep your lawn healthy with less effort and time. This way you can focus on what is more important in your life!
Use a sharp mower blade:
Having a dull mower blade causes grass to be torn and not cut properly. When your grass is torn it causes it to be more likely to get disease and yellowing. Grass that is damaged also requires more time and nutrients to recover. Thus delaying the amount of time until you have a beautiful green lawn again. Having a blade that has been balanced properly is also an important factor in getting even and clean cut grass.
Soaking VS Sprinkling
Contrary to popular belief, soaking a lawn very thoroughly a few times instead sprinkling regularly is better for the lawn overall. When you use sprinkling lightly, you often reach the top portion of the grass, roots, and soil. This causes the top root layer to grow thicker instead of the bottom one. After doing so, the top roots require more water and nutrients to stay healthy. However if you soak the grass for long periods of time you cause the bottom deep layers of the lawn to do as the top layer would do for short sprinklings. Overall benefiting a healthier and thicker lawn.
Aerate your lawn to help air flow
Given that a lawn is alive, it is vital to give it Aeration to help it breathe better. All parts of the grass need water, nutrients, and importantly, Oxygen. When you Aerate a law, you poke holes in the soil with special tools to provide water and oxygen to get to the deeper parts of the soil and roots. This allows the bottom parts to develop and grow as we wrote in the previous paragraph. Thus encouraging the overall health and growth of your lawn.
