Well, here we are in the month of February. It’s hard to believe that spring is just around the corner. Now is the time to show your lawn some love with these lawn care tips.
Lawns Need Sunlight
First things first, you want your lawn to have room to kick out it’s feet. This means keep it clear of shrubs and trees that might block the sunlight from getting to it. If you happen to find that your lawn is almost always in the shade then perhaps it’s time to get some a hedge trimming service done to get the sunlight on the grass.
The issue is that if your turfgrass does not get enough light and airflow the moisture can get trapped in your lawn. This can produce fungi and disease which harms and damages it.
Cut Your Grass Regularly
It’s also important that your lawn is properly irrigated, fertilized throughout the season, and you cut the lawn on a regular basis. This will help it thrive.
When a lawn does not have the above done to it regularly then excess thatch is produced which restricts water infiltration and can cause your grass to form shallow roots. With shorter roots, your lawn becomes more likely to form disease and receive damage from pesky insects.
What is wrong with too much thatch? This leads to excess nitrogen. Look to see if your lawn feels soft and spongy. If it does you likely have too much thatch, as well as moss, and you’ll need to have your lawn power raked.
