Keeping your lawn looking great is more than just mowing it weekly and watering it every day. In fact, doing these things too often or too infrequently can do more harm than good. Here are 4 tips from the team at Action Lawn & Landscape LLC for maintaining your landscaping and keeping everything looking green and fresh.
Fix Lawn Spots
If you have pets, then you know that it is easy to get unsightly yellow spots of dead grass all over your lawn after just a short time. You can help maintain a nice green lawn and keep lawn spots at bay by fertilizing your lawn every spring to mask spots and boost the color in your grass.
Make Grass Greener
Is the grass always greener on the other side? There is something you can do to make sure your grass is the greenest on the block: Find out how much, how often, and when is the best time to water your grass. Water is the key, but if you water too much, too often, or at the wrong time, you will likely end up with more problems than just dry grass. The best thing to do is talk to one of the professional lawn maintenance companies in Reno about appropriate watering levels.
Eliminate and Control Weeds
No matter where you live and what you are growing on your property, weeds have a way of taking over if you even go a short time without maintaining your lawn and keeping weeds away. The best way to control weeds is by applying thick organic mulch to your soil and/or laying down landscape fabric. Both of these options are inexpensive and will go a long way to keep weeds from invading your landscape.
Let Your Lawn Breathe
A lot of people don’t think of their landscape as a living, breathing thing. Of course it won’t be for long if you are not aerating it regularly. As part of your Reno lawn maintenance plan, make sure that you are aerating as part of your routine. Doing so helps revive the lawn after winter and lets air circulate through to its roots.
