Water Properly

Watering your lawn doesn’t indicate watering more – you must change how you water. The grass is resilient, so follow these lawn care tips to water properly:

  • Water your plants deeply
  • Make sure to water in the early morning or evening to avoid evaporating. The grass requires an inch of water weekly.
  • Use drip irrigation over a sprinkler or hose. Drip irrigation gradually water your grass so the water doesn’t evaporate if used during the day.

Maintain a Healthy Grass

Many people maintain their grass mowed short to avoid mowing it frequently; however, this is different. Instead, proper mowing techniques will keep your landscape healthy. Other lawn care tips include:

  • Aerating your lawn yearly to improve the oxygen flow and inspecting the pH balance of your soil to confirm it remains healthy.
  • Fertilizing regularly
  • Remove weeds as they steal nutrients from your turf.

Consider Adding Mulch to Your Gardens

Consider adding mulch rather than grass or dirt around outdoor living spaces and flowerbeds. Mulch not only prevents weed growth, fertilizes your plants, and breaks down, but it is also low-maintenance since you don’t have to water or mow it. In addition, mulch is affordable, and you only have to replace it in the spring. Also, mulch prevents weeds from developing in your garden beds during the summer, especially if you place protective matting underneath.

Create an Outdoor Living Space

The more outdoor living space you develop, the less lawn care you complete in the long run. Therefore, you will have more space to entertain in the warmer weather. This is because you will have fewer grassy areas to maintain.
