The Lawn Care Recipe for Green Grass


A green lawn is an ultimate goal for achieving curb appeal and neighbor envy. Have you tried to step up your lawn care but still aren't seeing the results you desire? In this guide, we will break down everything you need to know about achieving and maintaining great grass. The recipe for green grass starts with establishing a lawn care routine - let’s start cooking up a routine that’s right for your yard.


Establishing a Routine

The first step to achieving an excellent lawn is establishing a routine that works. Lawn care doesn’t have to be hard or even be something you need to do weekly. By implementing these techniques into your lawn care routine, you will see a noticeable difference in the physical state and health of your grass:

  •     Weed control
  •     Mowing to the right length
  •     Adequate watering

Pulling weeds is a task that every homeowner dreads. You can make weed pulling less daunting by splitting your lawn areas into sections and keeping those areas on rotation. Maintaining weed control ensures that the nutrients, water, or liquid fertilizers you apply do not go to building a more robust weed system but to nourishing the grass. 

Adequate watering is often overlooked in lawn care. Your lawn requires about 1-2 inches of water every week. Ensure that your grass is receiving enough hydration by setting up a timed sprinkler session every week. Aim to water your grass when the sun is low to ensure the maximum absorption.

When it comes to mowing your lawn, aim to cut the only ⅓ of blade length in a single mow. Switching up your mowing pattern encourages upward growth. If you want to learn more about how you can improve your grass cutting skills, check out these lawn care tips to help you get started.


Liquid Fertilizer and Aeration

Once you find a routine that works for your grass, maintaining your lawn should be a breeze. Weed control, mowing, and watering can be a part of your bi-weekly lawn care routine. If you’re looking for an extra boost, lawn aeration and liquid fertilizers will be your best bet to resolve any issues, starting at the root.

Lawn Aeration creates a direct channel from the surface to the soil for water, air, and nutrients to significantly impact your lawn. Lawn aeration can help solve several lawn issues, including soil compaction and crusting. Aeration is an excellent lawn care technique to execute before a fertilizer application.

When it comes to lawn care, liquid lawn care is the way to go, and the same is true for liquid fertilizers. With a faster absorption, quicker results, and no tools required, it's no wonder that this liquid fertilizer beats granular fertilizer applications.


Lawn Care Maintenance

Having a luscious, green lawn means healing your grass from the roots up. With a balanced soil and proper lawn care routine, you will be well on your way to having the best lawn on the block. Let us help you find a grass care routine and maintenance lawn maintenance schedule that works for your lawn care needs.
