Lawn Care

Oct 14, 2014

The first step in proper lawn care is having a lush, beautiful, and weed-free lawn is choosing the right grass for your site. Whenever possible, plant low-maintenance, pest-resistant grasses that will require less watering and fertilizing.

Have your soil tested at least once every five years so you can add the proper nutrients and balance the pH.

Plant grasses only where they will do well. Heavily shaded areas call for other plantings.

Apply fertilizer in the late summer and early fall.

Water your lawn only when it needs it, generally once a week.

Avoid mowing your lawn too short, and take off only about one-third of the height of the grass each time. Using a mulching mower and leaving the grass clippings in the lawn will reduce the amount of fertilizer you need since it recycles nutrients back into the soil.

In a nutshell that is what you need to do for proper lawn care. If you feel you may skip parts because of time constraints, family obligations, etc. H~DNA is ready, willing, and able to help you enjoy your best lawn yet!
