Lawn Maintenance – How to Keep Your Lawn Looking Lush and Green All Year Long

Lawn Maintenance To keep your lawn looking lush and green all year long, you need to do regular maintenance. That means showing your grass some love through mowing, weeding, edging, and aerating.

You can also improve your lawn’s health by reducing soil compaction, thatch, topdressing, and applying fertilizer and herbicides. These practices will help your grass survive the elements and thrive in any climate.

The most important thing you can do for your lawn is to water it well. Deep waterings are best because they help roots grow deep and sturdier. Frequent shallow waterings tend to encourage thatch, a thick layer of dead grass that covers the soil and can attract chinch bugs (a pest common in dry, hot regions) and other weeds.

During mid-summer, apply post-emergent herbicides for weeds and insects. Fertilize cool-season grasses in late summer and early fall.

Insects and fungus can cause serious problems for your grass, so treating for these issues now can prevent problems from coming up in the future. This is also a good time to test your soil for nutrient deficiencies, which can lead to a weakened turf.

Annual aeration is another key maintenance practice that will take your lawn up to a much higher level. Aerating will loosen up compacted soil, which will improve air circulation and allow the nutrients to penetrate more deeply into the root system.

It is also an excellent opportunity to add organic matter, which will feed your soil and keep it healthy. It can be done with a handheld tool or with an electric aerator.
