Set the stage for a healthy lawn with proper soil preparation. If your yard’s soil is lacking essential nutrients, your lawn can’t flourish no matter what you do. If you’re unsure about the quality of your soil, there are professionals and do-it-yourself tests which will indicate if you need to add nutrients to your soil. Get more information about the importance of healthy soil, ways to test your soil and make improvements right here.
Talk to your local nursery or garden professional to choose the right type of fertilizer for your home. Depending on where in Asheville you are located, different recommendations may be made. Due to shifting weather patterns and elevation, you want to ensure you are choosing the right formula for a happy and healthy lawn.
Understand your water program and adjust your sprinklers for the best lawn care. Landscape experts say that watering your lawn two times per week for a longer time (about an hour) is better for your lawn than watering every day for only 20 minutes. This allows the water to soak down deep into the roots.
Mowing your lawn is an art form and great exercise. Keep the blades sharp and never mow more than 1/3 of the grass blade at a time. Do this by setting a regular schedule and sticking to it.
Sod and Seed
If you need to fill in a few bare spots, adding a couple of patches of sod is a great idea. If your entire lawn could use some help, it might be time to reseed.
Spring is upon us here in Asheville NC. It’s time for you and your family want to get out into the yard and enjoy the weather at your Asheville home. Prepare your lawn now for an entire season of beauty with just a little care.
