Don’t be the neighbor with the ugly yard this year. Be the neighbor everyone envies…year round. These helpful tips should keep your yard dazzling through every season.


SPRING TIPS:

  1. Make sure to put seed in all blank or bare spots in your grass.

  2. Watering your grass is wonderful, but don’t overwater. It is actually good for the grass when the roots have to grow deep to search for water.


SUMMER TIPS:

  1. Sharpen your lawnmower blades. A dull blade can tear the grass instead of achieving a clean cut, and that is not good for your lush lawn.

  2. Summer is not the time to fertilize your lawn. It is best to wait until the weather cools.

FALL TIPS:

  1. You can mow a little lower in the fall, as there is less heat and direct sunlight that can dry out the soil. This is especially true if it is the last mow of the season; nobody wants to worry about overgrown grass all winter.

  2. Gas left in a carbureted lawnmower over the winter can become stale, damaging the carburetor when it runs again the next season. You have several options: you can add fuel additive, siphon the excess gas into a gas can, or run the mower until all the gas is depleted.

WINTER TIPS:

  1. Rake those leaves! The grass left underneath piles of unraked foliage has a higher chance of dying from the lack of air and sunlight.

  2. Don’t walk on the grass too much. Heavy foot traffic areas can cause bald patches.
