How to Improve Your Lawn


Having a nice lawn is something to be proud of. It adds curb appeal, value, and natural beauty to your home. Unfortunately, getting the yard of your dreams is not as easy as it seems. These tips will help improve your lawn and bring it closer to a picture-perfect lawn you’ll be happy to show off.

Lawn Aeration

Lawn aeration is one of the best things you can do to improve your lawn, but many people don’t know about it! The idea is simple, bringing more air to the roots of the lawn so it will grow better. This is achieved by putting small holes about 3 inches deep in your yard. The holes are small enough that they won’t be visible unless you’re right on top of it but big enough to bring air directly to the roots of the grass.
A landscaping professional should do aeration to ensure the holes are properly spaced at the correct depth. Trying to do it yourself would be incredibly tedious, time-consuming, and ineffective if the holes aren’t done correctly.

Change Your Watering Schedule

Overwatering could be to blame if your lawn doesn’t look its best. Saturating your property more thoroughly and less frequently is much better than water for a shorter period. The exact watering schedule you need will depend on your climate, the type of grass in your lawn, and how the lawn currently looks.

Cut Your Grass the Right Way

Cutting your grass too short can be detrimental to the appearance of your lawn. Cutting with dull blades too often and using the wrong technique will also damage the appearance of your lawn. The first step to determining how you should cut your lawn is knowing what species of grass you’re cutting so you can customize your cutting the what helps that specific grass grow the best.

Hire a Professional

Hiring a lawn care professional is something a lot of homeowners are against. They think it’s lazy, too expensive, and unnecessary, but none of that is true. Hiring a professional to care for your lawn is no different than hiring a professional to fix your car. They have the knowledge and tools you don’t have to achieve the best result! Professional lawn services also help you save time and, surprisingly, won’t break the bank.
