Four Steps To A Healthy Lawn

June 13, 2016

Having a healthy lawn is a point of pride for many homeowners. Everyone always notices that one lawn with the perfect lawn. It is always perfectly mowed and edged, has no weeds, and zero brown patches. The lawn looks great and makes the entire home look that much more appealing. Usually, these lawns are only achieved by retirees because maintaining a lawn can take a lot of work. Below are four steps you can take to achieve the perfect lawn that you have always wanted.

Choose The Right Type Of Grass Seed


The most important step to having a fresh-looking lawn is to choose the right type of grass seed to plant. Many people do not realize that there are many different kinds of grass, and each one has its benefits and drawbacks. Do some research to determine which grass will do best in your environment. We understand that a lot of people do not plant their lawn from the beginning, so there may not be complete control over what type of grass you have. If this is the case, then you could either wipe out all of the grass and start from scratch or re-seed every year with the grass varietal you want, and eventually, that grass will take over.

Use Razor Pro Weed Killer

Not only do a lot of us not have the time to maintain a perfect yard, but a lot of people also struggle with the costs of expensive lawn care devices and treatments. Razor Pro Weed Killer is the perfect solution for this problem. At a much more reasonable price than other popular herbicides, Razor Pro can do just as good of a job. Removing weeds is important to help your grass maintain its root system, so make sure to use this weed killer each year for optimum results.

Fertilize your grass
Newsom Seed suggests annual fertilization as key if you want to have a lush, green lawn. You know that nasty smell of manure that you smell every spring? It may not smell good, but it works to promote a healthy life for plants and grass. Grab a bag of fertilizer each year at Newsom to give your grass nutrients that it needs to live a full, healthy life.

Practice regular treatment

A lot of people think that we mow our lawns to make them easy to walk through. While this is true to some extent, we mow them to keep the grass at a healthy length. If the grass gets too tall, then it becomes weak and is more likely to die. Mowing keeps it at a length that makes it easy to survive. Mowing is only one of the regular treatments we should give our lawns. We should also be careful to water our grass regularly to keep it healthy.
