Professional Lawn Care at Home

Aug 21, 2007
Your lawn is your treasure. If you have always lived in a house with a huge awn you may not even realize it, but if you have just moved from an apartment to a hose with a yard this fact will be crystal clear. Caring for the lawn requires a lot of knowledge and a lot of patience. After all we all know the British lawn joke. However with this short and easy guide you will not need 200 years to get that perfect lawn.

The first step in creating a beautiful and healthy lawn is to establish it. Take a look at the yard and see where the lane will be. May be you want some flower spots, a playground spot, etc. after you have selected the area make sure the soil is thick enough. Many yards already have some kind of grass but usually it is very weedy. In this case first get rid of the old grass and than replant it.

The next step is to choose a proper grass type. The grass should be suitable not only for the climate but for the usage of the lawn and the amount of care you are ready to put in its maintenance. There is a wide variety of grass types some offer fresh green color, other are very durable and suitable for any kind of activities and so on. If you are not sure which type of grass is best for you it is better to consult a specialist.

Once the grass is planted prepare to give it regular "styling". Mowing is may be the most important thing if establishing a great lawn. A new lawn should be mowed as soon as it reaches regular mowing height. Make sure the mower is sharp and the mowing height is usually one and a half inches. During the summer you can increase the mowing height up to three inches this will not only give a gorgeous look of your lawn but will reduce the need of frequent watering and fertilizing.

Watering your lawn is as important as mowing. The best time to water your lawn if in the evening. The amount of water required by each grass type is different but usually mot grasses need the equivalent of an inch of rainfall per week. Your lawn may need additional watering during the hot summer season and in arid climates.

The final things to take into account are the fertilizing, inset and weed control. You will need specialized products to treat your lawn. Moreover the application of these products may be a bit complicated. The best thing to do is to hire a professional lawn care service to handle this job. They will know better than you what the best products are and how they are applied.
