You dream of having the best lawn on the block—grass that’s a rich green and as thick as carpet. However, you have yet to figure out just what it takes to get your Richmond, IN lawn to the next level. Don’t despair! All Brothers Lawn Squad LLC has four suggestions for how you can get healthier, greener grass.
1. Pick the right fertilizer.
Did you know that fertilizers are specially formulated for different types of grass and for the different seasons? It’s important to choose the right fertilizer that’s going to cater to your specific type of Indiana grass and the time of year. If you’re not sure which one to choose, just ask a lawn care professional, or sign up for fertilization treatments.
2. Don’t over or under water your lawn.
Giving your grass too much or too little water can affect its health. Some experts suggest you aim for ¾ to 1” of water per week for most turf grasses. During drier seasons, you may need to do this watering yourself. But if you recently had a good amount of rain, don’t flood your lawn by turning on the sprinklers. Give your grass time to soak up the rain!
3. Make a plan for pest and weed control.
Grub and weed control doesn’t just happen. You have to be proactive in pest control in order to keep these lawn killers away. Our team at All Brothers Lawn Squad LLC can help you develop a grub control and weed control plan to keep your lawn looking its best.
4. Don’t forget aeration.
Every fall, your lawn needs to take a deep breath. The best way to do this is through a process called aeration. Aeration removes small plugs of soil throughout your lawn, allowing oxygen and valuable nutrients to get down into your lawn’s roots while also helping eliminate lawn thatch.
