Having a good-looking lawn is increases curb-appeal. It is extremely important to pay attention to your lawn as an unhealthy lawn can ruin the entire look of your property.

The first step in creating a lush, green and healthy lawn is to determine which type of grass you have in your area (for example, here in Birmingham area,  our grass types are Bermuda, Zoysia, and St. Augustine). Another consideration is your climate and how much sun and rain your grass receives. This will determine how often you should be watering your lawn.

Watering your lawn properly is important as it provides the grass with the correct amount of moisture, it cools down the temperature of the soil and it helps wash any fertilizer into the soil.

During the colder months, your grass still needs attention and will benefit from frequent and shallow watering to keep it looking in tip-top shape. The reason for this is that winter grass has shallower root systems than in the summer months.

The best time to water your lawn is in the early morning because it is cooler and there is less evaporation. In addition, if your grass dries before sunset, there is a reduced risk of it contracting a disease.

You can speed up the growth and development of your new, healthy lawn by mowing frequently. However, take care not to cut the grass too short as (no more than 1/3 inch of the blade) and also ensure that your mower blades are kept sharp.

Finally, if you decide to aerate your lawn, you will be doing it a massive favor! These 2 processes help to remove any dead root material from the lawn and ventilate the lawn’s root system if the grass underlayer is becoming problematic.
