3 Great Tips to Keep Your Lawn Healthy and Strong

Take a look at your front and backyard. Does your lawn look as great as you want it to? If it does, you're probably not looking hard enough, but if you think it could use some work, it's definitely time to get working.

Here are some property owner tips that should help you turn your visually unappealing yard into a beautiful, healthy, and strong landscape.

Stop weeds from forming
In order to really ensure that your lawn is healthy, strong, and looking great, you need to prevent weeds from coming up in the first place. Consider using a pre-emergent herbicide to control any crabgrass and difficult-to-eliminate weeds. As long as their seeds don’t sprout, those weeds won’t grow on your property. Ultimately, this proactive approach is much easier than constantly pulling up weeds all spring and summer long, so get to work. 

Focus on backyard pest control
Even if your lawn looks amazing, there could be some underlying factors that will lead to some major issues. Pests hiding in your lawn can not only kill your grass and plants, but they can also make their way into your home and actually damage its structure. You should maintain at least six inches of clearance between all soil and structural wood to prevent decay, which attracts termites and carpenter ants. Additionally, the best way to ensure a bug-free backyard is to work with a professional pest control company. Simply hire an exterminator and have him or her clear your property of all those unwanted insects before they can invade your home.

Regularly water and mow your lawn
Neglecting your lawn is the easiest way to ruin it. You have to constantly take care of your property if you want it to look great and last long. You should water your lawn during the morning because the sunlight will help dry the grass and cutdown on prolonged moisture. Don’t water the grass every day, but make sure you are doing it regularly. Also, you need to mow your lawn at least once a week to maintain its look. Keep your mower blades sharp so you can prevent that graying brown look on your lawn as well.
