Envying lawns is real. People in New York take pride in their state and their landscapes, lawns, and gardens. They feel satisfied and accomplished when their lawn stays soft, lush, and green throughout the year. So, we at Lawn Love can help you accomplish that task. Here are some tips and tricks to improve the health and appearance of the lawn given by the professionals at Lawn Love:
Regularly mow your lawn
You must cut the turf once every two weeks during summer. If you trim regularly, it encourages the roots of the grass to spread widely and block the weed growth by billing the empty gaps in the lawn. Raise the height of the mower to around 5-10 cm during summer. This won't let the grass turn brown during dry weather. The blades of the mower must be kept sharp, which would also reduce the oil consumption by 20%.
Water your lawn
Keep your lawn moist by watering them regularly, which would allow the grass to grow a deep root system. Do not overwater because this will make the roots shallow and will get poorly established.
Using stored rainwater is also beneficial. Sprinklers are a good investment to keep your lawns hydrated. Do not hesitate if the lawn turns brown due to dry weather, as it will regrow and turn green again after it rains.
Dandelions and Plantains have wide flat leaves that cover large areas and inhibit the growth of grass. They can be easily removed with the help of a daisy grubber or hand trowel.
Weeds like Clover, Buttercups, and Yellow Medricks also spread quickly in the lawn, so raking must be done before mowing, and you can collect them up. Avoid using weed killers because these are expensive and will cause the turf to have poor grass health. This will trigger the weeds to grow more.
Fix compacted grass
Areas where the grass is compact stop the grass from growing well, which causes bare patches and mud batches during summer. Fix that specific part of the lawn where the grass is close by aerating the soil with a garden fork and dig 10 cm below the ground. Gently rake it back and forth. These forks open the compact areas in the soil that allows the roots to have enough space to breathe and encourages grass growth.
Horticultural grit or sharp sand must be applied to the places with Clayey soil or heavy ground to improve the drainage system and prevent any compaction in the future.
Edge your lawn
Giving a fine finishing touch to your lawn would enhance the overall beauty of your garden by the method of Edging. It makes the property look neat and clipped. You can use a long-handled sheer for this purpose to define the edge of the lawn. This also stops the extra growing grass from reaching the edges allowing the garden to give a satisfying neat and clean look. You can use a Half-moon edger or spade to create a shallow moat or to reshape it or make something from where grass can't cross.

Feed your lawn
You need to feed your lawn to keep it looking good. Invest in a good quality wheeled lawn feeder if you have a large area of lawn. Keep applying fertilizers to the grass while it rains. This would allow all the applied fertilizers to reach each, and every part of the roots and keeps the leaves of the plants from getting burned.
Using an organic fertilizer rather than chemical fertilizer would help in aiding the health of the lawn for longer. But in case it doesn't rain, you can use a hose or watering can apply fertilizers. After this, within a week, you would start to notice that your lawn is turning greener.
It's preferred to feed the lawns during midsummer or spring. To know more about this process, you can contact Lawn Love specialists and get assisted with proper maintenance.
Fill the bare patches
The presence of bare patches spoils the overall look of the lawn. It's easier to sow the grass seeds in overraked soil. You can use new turf as fillers into the empty areas. Collect all the strips and keep them at least 5 cm apart in the seed tray of compost, and then you can grow them outside.
You can cut the ground of that specific area where a bare patch is present in a square or rectangular shape with a hand trowel. Then dig out that rectangular part of the soil to whatever depth. Gently apply the new turf on top of that space you just created and fit it properly. Apply it in such a way that there are no empty gaps and the turf is neither higher nor lower.
With that being said, you can put the first lawn you ever made in the right hands by contacting lawn Love specialists to grow a thicker, eye-catchy, and healthy lawn. We provide an all-in-one solution for our customers. That comprises lawn care tips with different products like smart seeds enhanced with lime, soil enhancers, and professional-grade fertilizers. This makes the lawn grow faster, denser, and greener than any ordinary grass.
We at Lawn Love provide lawn boosters that would benefit the smart seeds and improve the beauty and sustainability with water conservation.
These grasses remain green for at least up to three weeks once they get established. To protect your lawn from nitrogen loss into the environment, use nitrogen-stabilized fertilizers. This way, your grass would keep getting nutrition continuously during eight weeks.
Advisors at Lawn Love suggest not to use extra fertilizers. Using soil-enhancing gypsum improved the health of the soil and condition by this combination of products. This allows the seeds to germinate better and have better color and texture.
