The lawn is really important if you want the garden as a whole to be properly cared for and to look as beautiful as possible. So the question is, what can or should you be doing to make sure that your lawn is being looked after as best as can be? In this post, we are going to take a look at this in some detail, and you should find that just focusing on some of the following elements is going to make a massive difference to the lawn and the garden as a whole. Let’s take a look right now.

Mow It Regularly

You should first ensure that you are mowing your lawn on a regular basis, because this is easily one of the best ways to make sure that you can actually keep it as healthy as you would hope. You might be surprised about how much of a difference this makes to the health of the lawn, not just the look of it, and it’s really vital that you are therefore mowing it on a regular basis. You don’t have to go crazy with it, just once a month or so should do in most settings.

Get The Professionals In

There is certainly something to be said for having a professional lawn care team coming in to look after your lawn for you. They can help in fertilizing it properly, keeping it maintained regularly, ridding it of pests, and making sure that the weeds are being managed effectively too, and much else besides. You should definitely at least consider seeking such a team, and it could be the best thing you have ever done for your garden as a whole, let alone the lawn.

Feed It

You might never have fed a lawn before – it’s not something you would necessarily think about. But the truth is that feeding a lawn is really important if you are going to keep it looking its very healthiest at all times. All you have to do here is to give it some normal plant food – a liquid nitrogen-based spray is best, and easiest to apply in most cases. Do this every month to six weeks throughout the year, but especially in the growing season, and you will soon have a much more beautiful lawn that you can be proud of.

Relieve Compacted Grass

From time to time, you might end up with some more compacted areas on the lawn, and that can happen at any time of year. In summer, it can lead to bare patches, and in the colder months, it can mean that the lawn becomes a mud bath. The trick is to aerate the lawn, which is a simple case of turning over the soil top layer with a garden fork. Do that on any compacted areas, and it will soon right itself out again.

And there you have it – follow these tips and you will have a much more beautiful lawn in no time at all.
