How To Keep Your Lawn Green All Year
August 27, 2015
Everyone wants a bright, green lawn. But it is not easy to keep it this way year round. You want to maintain a green lawn as long as possible, and that can take a lot of work, a lot of smart decisions, and a lot of treating your lawn the way it deserves to be treated. The following are important strategies for keeping your lawn healthy all year.
Creating a Strong Foundation For Your Lawn
It is possible to have a green lawn all throughout the year. But in order to do this, you need to make sure that you’re caring for your lawn the right way. That involves a variety of different decisions, including:
- Aeration – First and foremost, you’ll want to aerate your lawn. For grass to stay green all year, it’s very important that you ensure its roots are deep within the ground and able to clearly receive nutrients. Aeration is the most important step, as this loosens the soil allowing the roots to grow deeper and giving your grass a better opportunity for survival.
- Watering and Mowing – Maintenance is, of course, another very important step to maintaining a green lawn. But it’s not just about maintenance. It’s about how you maintain. You have to make sure you’re never damaging your lawn by cutting it too much at once, and you have to make sure you’re watering deeply only a few times a week rather than a little every day (so that the roots learn to grow deeper and not become shallow).
- Fertilization – Of course, fertilization plays another very big role, and that’s why at Green Lawn Fertilizing, fertilization is our top priority. We specialize in ensuring that your lawn is receiving the nutrients it needs to thrive, and we insist that you contact us for our 7 step fertilization program.
- Lawn Disease Control – Finally, there are going to be times when your lawn is weaker, and when it’s weaker it is at risk for lawn disease which will quickly kill off your best grass. That is why prevention is key. Make sure that you’re using fungal prevention tactics and tools to prevent lawn disease and keep your lawn green.
