Part three of our series on lawn maintenance explores some general tips for caring for your lawn.
Lawn Maintenance and Lawn Care in Summer
There is nothing like the feeling of grass scrunched between your toes. The smell, the green, all of it makes you think of the joys of summer. So you want to make sure that you take care of your lawn, so first and foremost where lawn maintenance tips are concerned is to be careful what you use on your lawn, as well as be careful when you apply it.
People that have lawns can be obsessive where they are concerned. The first stirring of a weed or a bug, and they heavily treat the lawn with pesticides and weed killer. However, bear in mind that spraying large amounts of pesticide and/or herbicide around where you live is dangerous because you are exposing yourself and your family to carcinogens present in the chemicals. Spot spraying while more time consuming is much more healthy where lawn maintenance is concerned. You also want to make sure that what you’re using is safe for your lawn as well as for yourself.
Lawn care products run the gamut from very good to ripoffs. So do companies for that matter. So make sure you know what you’re putting on your lawn as well as who may be working on it. Some products for example can burn your lawn, particularly if it is hot outside.
So remember, if you want to do the best things you can for your lawn, a bit of knowledge is always best. And if you want to save both time and money, you might wish to consider hiring a professional lawn care service.
