When your lawn is healthy, it improves the curb appeal of your home. It helps you create a gorgeous outdoor living area. There are many things you can do to improve the health of your grass. Continue reading below to learn about three of them.
Seeding is an excellent way to fill in those thinner areas of grass around your yard. When you seed, you are allowing new grass to establish and to create that thick, lush lawn covering that you desire. When seeding your lawn, make sure the grass seeds have direct contact with the soil. This will help them properly germinate.
Aeration is the process that brings life into a lawn and compacted soil. No matter the type of grass you may have, aeration should be a step in lawn care that you do not skip. It helps to break up the soil, allowing for more oxygen and water to get into the soil. If seeding your grass, aeration also is key to helping the grass better establish itself.
Trim Your Grass
You must make sure you mow your grass correctly if you want to improve its health. The type of grass you have, the weather, and other factors will all affect how often you should mow your grass. For example, during the heat of the summer, you don’t want to cut your grass too short as that can burn the grass. You also don’t want to cut the grass too often or trim too much at once. Often, mowing just once a week will be enough to keep your grass short and healthy.
