Turf Tips for the Home Lawn
Everyone has at least one lawn in their neighborhood that looks like this. And we all spend time trying to achieve this same look. Many times we are simply not spending our time and money wisely in order to achieve the perfect lawn. Here are a few tips that will steer you in the right direction:
- Aerate your lawn when the soil has good moisture with a rented unit or hire someone to do it. Having good soil moisture will allow the machine to penetrate deeper into the soil profile.
- Overseed with a seed selected for your site at the rate recommended on the bagSpread compost, (Leafgro, Humus & Manure,...) over the top of your freshly aerated lawn at about .5" - 1" thick and gently rake over with the back side of a leaf rake to help move the seed and compost into the holes you just created.
- Fertilize. Then water twice per day for the first 7-10 days and then once per day for 2 weeks. Having a nice, lush, healthy lawn takes time, effort and resources. Please be patient and continue to incorporate these tips in your everyday approach to your lawn. You will see results immediately, and continued care will guarantee the future health of your lawn.
