It’ll take more than sweet talk and a whole lot less than daily maintenance to keep the grass green and healthy on your side of the fence. Keeping your lawn healthy and manicured comes down to finding that happy medium, in which it has everything it needs for its best chance to thrive. Even under ideal circumstances, there may come times when it best to call in reinforcements. But when your lawn is at or near where you want it to be, there are several best practices you should tackle yourself.
When to Water
It’s more important to water effectively than constantly. Typically, you should water your lawn no more than once a week. And when you do, soak it enough water to soften up the soil and give the roots of your grass their best chance to establish themselves firmly into the ground.
Air It Out
Watering and fertilizing your lawn is much more effective when your applications actually reach the root system. When grass gets too tight, it can block food and water from the roots. So use an aeration tool to help your lawn breathe.
Feed Until Its Fed
You can’t survive on water alone and the same is true of your lawn. You should fertilize your lawn two to three times a year, ideally.
