Lawn care can be a difficult task following and keeping up with the weather and demands of your lawn. You may even end up making mistakes that will cause you more than what you would pay for lawn care. Your grass requires special care depending on the season and its demands change according to the weather. The type of grass you're growing is also an important factor to consider before making any decisions regarding your lawn. To avoid hurting yourself or putting your family and pets in a dangerous situation, there are some common lawn hazards that you should look out for.
Common lawn Hazards
Fleas hide in your long grass and shady areas of the lawn. They are also mostly found in the cool, moist, and humid areas of your lawn. These biting insects carry diseases such as the bubonic plague. Reduce fleas in your lawn by mowing them to the proper height required by the grass and preventative flea sprays that are not harmful to your grass.
This fungus may be produced in an overwatered, wet lawn. Always remember, not all mushrooms are edible. Therefore, make sure you seek professional guidance before you use mushrooms for eating purposes. Ingestion of poisonous mushrooms can cause death so make sure you look out for them and get rid of them and keep your children and pets safe.
Be it a pet or any other wildlife waste, they can both cause serious health damage. They give birth to many parasites and various diseases that can infect humans. These diseases include leptospirosis, salmonellosis, and campylobacteriosis. Some parasite eggs spread out in the soil and increase the chance of diseases that can be difficult to get rid of. Make sure you don't let any animal waste sit on your lawn for too long and get rid of it immediately.
Low or Uneven spots
If your ground is uneven from a particular area, you are vulnerable to tripping, stumbling, falling, and turning ankles. Activities such as running, mowing, or even walking can prove harmful in such lawns. Early repair of these spots is necessary.
Sticks or pebbles
Before mowing your lawn always make sure there aren't any sticks or tiny rocks lying around that can get in your way. Any of these can prove to be projectile and cause immense harm. Make sure your children are far from the lawn when you mow just to be careful.
The buzzing of these insects can be annoying and no one wants them in their lawn where they go to relax and enjoy a break. Apart from annoying these insects are also dangerous. Their bites spread malaria. Lots of moisture and shade is where they grow or take refuge. Make sure you mow your grass at an adequate height to prevent mosquitoes in your lawn.
Look out for holes in your lawn and instantly fill them up to avoid any tripping due to them. Close-ended holes will indicate that the culprit behind the action is an animal. Observing the hole and finding out what animal is the cause of the holes in your lawn will further help you control and stop it.
Why lawn care is important
A well-kept lawn is beneficial to the environment as it absorbs noise, creates oxygen, absorbs rainfall better than other fields, and prevents runoff. Your lawns provide your family with a place to relax and re-energize in the freshness of natural air, proving to be an extra nice place when the weather is pleasant. Most importantly, taking care of living things around you is your responsibility. Why would you let your grass die? Attending to your lawn will also contribute to the community as your lush green lawn will beautify the entire neighborhood.
