What You Should Know About Lawns This Year

Some Lawn Care Tips for Those Who Have Lawns

Having a lawn as your home’s backdrop is a beauty to behold. Therefore, having some knowledge on how to take care of your lawn would be handy for homeowners.

The number one consideration is to know and evaluate the environment where you live in. Check if you live near dusty roads, because if you do, your lawn could be suffering because even a light coating of dust will reduce the rate of photosynthesis of the plants. It is suggested therefore that you wash your lawn with water and dish soap on the days when it looks like it needs some cleaning. It is not recommendable to use anti bacterial dish soap as this leaves your lawn with yellow streaks.

Your second tip is to know if your residence is located in a wild fire hazard area. Because if you are, then it is better to use lawn grass that can help reduce the possibility of fire. This type of lawn grass is available in any local lawn care store, and a good combination of grass would be Canada bluegrass, wheat grass, sheep fescue and blue gramma grass.

Another idea is identify if you have shady sections in your lawn, and if you have, let the shady grass grow longer than the grass in the sunny area. This helps your lawn look better, and remember to prune out the branches of the tree in the shady area to let more light in.

Next tip is to recognize that earthworms are good for your lawn. You can try to attract more of these earthworms to your lawn by putting organic lawn fertilizer as this will attract earthworms like ants to sweets.

Another lawn care tip is to spread a thin layer of organic matter on the lawn regularly like mushroom compost. Horse manure, straw, gypsum, and limestone are the composition of the mushroom compost and these are the same ones that mushrooms grown in mushroom farms.

Another tip in taking care of your lawn is to use a mulcher mower in mowing your lawn as this can help you use less fertilizers. The cut up grass clippings are dropped by this mower into the soil where they decompose faster.

Another pointer in taking care of your lawn is to check out if the grass seems less green after you mow them, because then it is time to replace the dull mower blades.

Be observant as you trample your lawn, because if the grass does not have enough water, they will not have the strength to recover from those trampling.

Another care tip is to water your lawn between 5 and 8 in the morning and not during night time because water encourages brown patch and fungus diseases.
