Gretna lawn service and lawn care all starts at the roots. At Gretna Lawn Care we take pride in keeping our clients yards in tip top shape, but how do you do the same at your home? Even though you may not have the equipment or the experience you can still keep your lawn looking amazing year round. Gretna lawn service starts and ends with the details of keeping your grass in order. Here our our top three tips for a superb looking lawn all year round.
Get Ahead Of The Game
It’s easy to hold off until mid May before you decide to start up the mower. But getting an early jump on the quick growth that your grass experiences in the early months of spring is absolutely crucial. We recommend you start cutting your grass in the first couple weeks of April at the latest. This will help ensure that your lawn doesn’t get out of control. In the long run it will be easier for you and your lawn and is our first step to superior Gretna lawn service.
Irrigate Your Lawn
It seems simple but it is a totally necessary thing to give your grass the correct nutrients and materials it needs to grow. Arguably one of the most overlooked of these is giving your lawn moisture. Listen, proper irrigation didn’t make our “5 steps to transform your lawn” list for nothing. The results speak for themselves, you just have to put in a little extra effort to make sure your grass is getting the moisture it’s begging for. You don’t have to get overly fancy here either, all you need is a sprinkler that hooks up to your hose. You can sporadically relocate this sprinkler throughout your yard to ensure you hit every area. This will give your lawn the best chance to strive in those hot summer months.
Keep Your Blades Sharp
As we get later into the season some people start to notice their grass looks brown in some spots. You may also notice that your mower isn’t mulching grass as well as it was in the spring. This is probably because the blades that are doing the cutting are dulled out from a long season. This ends up hurting your lawn and your mower and is not how you need to be doing your Gretna lawn service. This is why we recommend getting your blades sharpened every other month if you are just using your mower for a residential purpose.
Did you know: The brown tips to your grass blades after a mow is a result of dull blades. This is because the grass actually gets “torn” off rather than a clean cut, leaving your grass damaged and brown.
