Lawn care is an essential aspect of landscape maintenance. It adds aesthetic value to your home or business, giving it an excellent first impression. However, maintaining a healthy lawn is not as easy as it seems. In reality, it takes a lot of work and commitment.
Most property owners fail to realize this and end up making mistakes such as:
- Cutting it too short. As a rule of thumb, healthy grass should be about 3 to 3.5 inches long. If the grass is any shorter, you might expose its roots to elements such as heavy downpours or hot sun. In turn, this may expose your lawn to erosion or dehydration.
- Overwatering. Overwatering is a waste of water and dangerous to the grass. The root system may be damaged or develop deadly fungi. The best way to ensure you have not overwatered is to look out for puddles of water or surface runoff on your lawn.
- Using strong chemicals. Most artificial fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides are unnecessary investments for your lawn. They are bad for the environment and can pose health risks. We recommend that you use mulch, manure, or compost to fertilize your lawn. The best method of getting rid of weeds is to pull them out by hand. Finally, pesticides should be used only when absolutely necessary to avoid overusing them.
