Achieving a lawn that looks like you hired a pro lawn care specialist to care for is easier than you think. Some of the lawn care ideas are simply common sense but people often overlook them when caring for their lawn. Simple things like ensuring that your mower blade is sharpened can make a huge difference in the quality of your lawn. To make the best look out of your lawn, follow the tips below:
Tip #1 – If you do live on or near some dusty roads, your can be sure lawn could be suffering. Do you know that the rate of photosynthesis could be greatly reduced even with a light coating of dust? You need to wash the lawn with water and dish soap every few days or when it looks like it needs some cleaning. Do not use anti bacterial dish soap, as this will leave the lawn with yellow streaks.
Tip #2 – If you live in a wild fire hazard area, then try to use lawn grass that can help reduce fire hazard. These lawn grass are available at your local lawn care store. A good combination of grass that would work are bluegrass, wheat grass, sheep fescue, and blue gramma grass.
Tip #3 – If there are shady sections in your lawn, you can let the shady grass grow longer than the grass in the sunny sections. This will help it look better. And remember to prune out some of the dense branches to let in more light.
Tip #4 – Earthworms are good for your lawn. Try to attract more earthworms to your yard with organic lawn fertilizer. This will attract earthworms like ants to honey.
Tip #5 – Try to spread a thin layer of organic matter on the lawn frequently. Mushroom compost is a good choice. This is the stuff that mushrooms grow in the mushroom farms. It is made up of substances like horse manure, straw, gypsum, and limestone. You can apply it as you would regular compost.
