Do you have lawn envy? My lawn never looked as good as my neighbors until I got serious about taking care of it. My neighbor told me some tips that helped a bunch. Now my grass looks better than it ever has!
- Aeration and over-seeding in the Fall
- Hire a service that applies 5 applications a year including a Fall treatment and then a Spring kick start
- Cut at 3 ½” every five days (I was cutting my grass at 3” once a week with mower blades that needed sharpening. In the Spring that is too short and not frequent enough.)
- Watering, when necessary
If your yard is brand new, you have quite a bit of work to do to get the yard of your dreams. Everything above applies but you also have to over-seed and be diligent about watering.
Cut your grass when it is tall enough and start yard applications after 3 months. It takes time and effort to get your best lawn and if you are not doing the above you have no chance. Good luck to all!
