Having a healthy and beautiful lawn isn’t hard if you know how! Follow these tips and tricks from DealDash to improve your lawn.
Do you ever look at your neighbor’s lawns and wonder how they are so green and lush, and yours is so…yellow and whithered? I know that I did, our lawn last year was really in need of some help. So over the winter I did a little research, and I have implemented some simple changes that has my lawn looking better than ever this year. Here are some handy lawn tips, from DealDash.
Water Heavily, Less Often
One of the big mistakes that I was making with my lawn last year was I was giving it a quick watering every day. Experts say that to have your lawn looking it’s best it’s a better practice to water your lawn less often – but much more heavily than you might think. This year, instead of giving a light watering every day, I am giving it an absolute soaking 2-3 times per week depending on how hot and sunny the weather is that week. Aim for about 2 inches of water all over the lawn, which is the equivalent of a very heavy rainstorm.
Don’t Water in the Hottest Part of the Day
This might sound like common sense, but as a first-time homeowner, I didn’t realize that you were not supposed to water the lawn during the middle of the day. It’s a much better to water in the evening after the sun is on its way down. If you water in the morning or during the middle of the day, the water is just going to evaporate and not reach down to the roots. Of course, if the morning or the middle of the day are the only times that you’re able to water, then water then, just keep in mind that you should try to water extra deeply.
Mulch Those Leaves
This tip is too late for this summer, but thinking ahead to the fall, don’t rake your leaves! Instead, run them over with the mower and leave them there. The leaves will provide excellent mulch for your lawn, and lets you do less work. Now that’s what I call win-win! Speaking of wins, after you’re done taking care of your lawn, it’s time to head on over to DealDash and snag a few auction wins!
