6 Tips for More Effective Lawn Care


 
Gardening
Are you constantly fighting weeds and brown patches in your lawn? Many homeowners struggle with lawn care all year long and are at a loss of how to achieve the lush green yard they desire. Here are 6 easy tips to help you grow a lawn you can be proud of.

Know When to Water

Watering your yard is all about timing. If you water during the afternoon, the sun will evaporate most of the water before it can reach the roots of your plants. If you water in the evening, the water might not evaporate from the blades of grass quickly enough. This can cause mold and rot as the temperatures cool overnight. The best time to water is in the morning, on days when there isn’t much wind. This will let your grass absorb as much water as possible, so you’ll have a greener lawn without using as much water. Most lawns should be watered 2-3 times per week, although you should turn off your sprinkler systems in Fairfax or wherever you live if you’ve just had a heavy rainfall. Your lawn can be damaged by too much water as well as too little.

Learn to Love Mulch

Mulch is a useful tool that can greatly benefit your trees and gardens. Mulch is made of organic materials such as compost, grass clippings, wood, or leaves. Spread a layer of it around your trees, bushes, and flowers. It will help to control weeds, keep the soil moist, and maintain an even soil temperature. As it gradually decomposes, it will also provide valuable nutrients to the soil and your plants.

Know How Much to Mow

Many homeowners make the mistake of over-mowing their lawns. You should never remove more than 1/3 of the blade of grass when you mow, so set your mower blade accordingly. It’s better to trim a little less and have to mow more frequently than cut a lot off at once. Leaving your grass a little long also helps protect against weeds growing and sunlight burning the roots, giving you a thicker, healthier lawn.

Know When to Fertilize

How often you need to fertilize your lawn depends on where you live and the type of fertilizer you use. The most important thing to remember is to fertilize when it is in its peak growing season. This means fertilizing in the spring in most areas, so that your lawn will have enough nutrients as it grows. You may even need to fertilize a second time in the spring or early summer. Fertilize again in the fall so your lawn can store up enough nutrients to survive the winter.

To find out whether your fertilizer is quick release or slow release, look at the packaging. Quick-release fertilizers are used up more quickly and usually have to be reapplied every month. Slow-release fertilizers often last several months before needing to be reapplied.

Aerate Your Lawn

Aerating your lawn is a technique where you create small holes in your soil, allowing water and nutrients to penetrate deeper into the ground. The best time to aerate your lawn is during the growing season, so that any damage to your grass will heal quickly. Most people choose to aerate during the early spring and then fertilize immediately afterward, so that the grass will absorb as many nutrients as possible.

Winterize Your Sprinkler System

Damaged sprinkler systems are a common cause of brown, patchy lawns. In cold areas, one of the most common causes of sprinkler system failure is water left in the sprinkler pipes over the winter. As the temperatures drop, this water freezes and expands, creating holes in your pipes. Sprinkler systems in Fairfax and other areas that have cold winters need to be completely drained before winter hits.
