How to Achieve a Perfect Lawn
Having a perfect lawn is what every homeowner dream of, and it means you have to invest effort, time and money to ensure it will materialize, but the process of achieving it should not be stressful, as long as you equip yourself with the right knowledge, skills and attitude to face the challenges of lawn care and maintenance. Fall is best time to thicken up the patchy areas of your lawn, so that you will have a thick and healthy grass in spring. Keep your lawn attractive and healthy through Nutley Lawn Care that includes proper watering, cutting, aerating and fertilizing, with good timing and effective techniques requiring less time and effort. Eliminate the growth of stubborn weeds in your lawn and prevent them from returning through maintaining healthy grass, good timing and by using minimum weed killers, along with simplified weed control measures.
Big weeds which obviously shown in your lawn such as bright yellow faces of dandelions, big-leaf plantain, and white flowering clover can be treated with granular weed control products to control and eliminate them. Control hard-to-eliminate weeds and dreaded crabgrass with the application of pre-emergent herbicide in early spring, by stopping their root-hold before they even germinate. It is best to wait for a heavy morning dew for applying granular weed control products because they need moisture to stick to the leaves of weeds. It is highly recommended to follow packaging instructions regarding protective equipment, application procedures, proper clothing and safety precautions, when using lawn care and treatment products. Be careful not to mow your lawn too short because this can damage your grass and it also allows weeds to set root. Grass that's cut too short is more prone to heat damage, weed invasion, and drought, and a tell-sign that the grass is over stressed or cut too short is yellow or brown colored grass. So never mow your lawn more than one-third of the grass blade.
It is important to keep the blade of your mower sharp, so sharpen or replace your mower blade when you see signs like shredding or frayed blade, because this can tear the grass, making your lawn grayish brown instead of healthy green. Early morning sunlight helps dry the grass, so this is the best time to water your lawn, because nighttime watering results to prolonged moisture on grass blades, opening the door for diseases. To achieve a greener lawn, feed your lawn with a mix of slow-release and fast-release fertilizers, in fall and spring in the north, and in spring and summer in the south.
