How to Maintain a Healthy Lawn


 
Gardening

Given all the emphasis on interior home makeovers, it’s no wonder that often the landscaping can be overlooked. Yet, the importance of landscaping in creating curb appeal should not be underestimated in adding considerable value to any home. Even more importantly, a properly designed landscape that incorporates areas to relax and enjoy the outdoors allows the whole family to enjoy the outside of the home as much as the inside—especially in Atlanta, where the weather can be very accommodating. Therefore, it’s important that one selects groundskeeper landscape services in Atlanta with care, with a particular emphasis on lawn maintenance.

Whether you’re selling your house and looking to make it more attractive to passersby or simply looking to create a warmer and more inviting outdoor space for you and the family, you will be surprised at how keeping your lawn in spectacular condition will contribute to both. Among other things, a lovely lawn can be used to produce a curving and mounding effect for your garden beds, afford a lush pathway that is soft to the feet, provide a welcome open space for play, or simply create an inviting entry to the front of your home. With that in mind, there are a few tips that will ensure that your lawn stays green and healthy, whether you do the work yourself or hire a professional groundskeeper. Either way, it’s important to understand good lawn mowing principles that are needed to maintain a lush lawn.

Mow High

Only the top 1/3 of the grass blades should be cut and only according to its growth rate and not the dates on the calendar. Remember that cutting too often or scalping a lawn forces the grass plant to replenish their blades rather than deepen their roots—not to mention the lawn also becomes more prone to weeds. As a rule of thumb, most grasses prefer a mower setting at its highest.

Mow Dry

It’s best to wait for a lawn to dry out before mowing, which means not just after a rain but also not too early in the morning when dew is still present. Cutting a lawn when wet will result in an uneven cutting, wet clippings will clog the mower, and clumps of grass will get dumped on the lawn, which in turn can choke the grass and result in those ugly brown spots.

Mow Different

Each time you mow your grass, mow it in a different direction, which will help in avoiding the compacting of the soil. In addition, the grass will stand up tall because it typically leans in whatever direction that you mow your lawn.

Leave the Clippings

If you mow high at the correct height and as needed, leave the clippings on the lawn. They will break down rapidly and will contribute nitrogen and other nutrients into the underlying dirt.

Keep a Sharp Blade

In order to get the cleanest cut, you need to keep the blades sharp. Dull blades will tear up the lawn and cause it to turn a grayish-brown color. Whenever possible, sharpen the blades at the first sign of wear.

These tips will serve you well, whether you take care of your own lawn or select groundskeeper landscape services in Atlanta to do it for you.
