Lawn Care Resolutions for the New Year

Lawn Care Resolutions for the New Year
You know the drill: Now that the end of the year is drawing near, it’s time to start fresh – it’s time to make some resolutions. What do you think of when it comes to New Year’s resolutions? Often, people’s minds go to ways to improve their health and happiness, but why limit yourself? After all, a resolution is nothing more than a promise to yourself to change a few habits. Quite often, those habits extend to several areas of your life – such as lawn care. Here are some easy resolutions you can make to ensure your own health and happiness in 2019 as well as the health and happiness of your lawn. You Gotta Fertilize Do you want your lawn to be at its best? Then you have to fertilize. Fertilizing keeps your lawn healthy all year long, not just when it’s applied. It provides your lawn with the nutrients it needs to thrive. Just be aware that any old fertilizer won’t do – you must choose the right type of fertilizer for your lawn. At the very least, it’s important to test your soil to see what nutrients it may be lacking in, then get the fertilizer at your local home improvement store that fits the bill. If you need help, don’t forget that the pros at Lawn Love can always help you decide what your lawn needs and make sure the job gets done. Control Those Weeds Controlling weeds in your lawn is very important, so make one of your resolutions this year to make a plan for how you’ll control the weeds and keep your lawn healthy. You may want to consider applying a pre-emergent herbicide to kill weeds before they take root, keep a careful watch over your lawn to pull weeds up as you see them, and also research other methods of weed control that may work best for your lawn and your lifestyle. Mow Regularly There are a lot of things in life it’s important to keep track of and your lawn mowing schedule is one of them. Don’t fall into the trap of mowing your lawn when you absolutely can’t wait any longer and then cutting it as short as you can. That’s a good way to damage the health of your lawn and make it susceptible to disease and drought during the hottest part of the year. Create a lawn mowing schedule in 2019 that centers around when your lawn is actively growing and when it is not. When the weather is warm, you may need to mow more often, making sure never to cut off more than one-third of a blade of grass at once. When the weather is cooler, you may need to reduce how often you mow. Let your lawn take the lead.
