Lawn Care

When you have a lawn around your home, no matter how small or large it may be, you do want to make sure it looks its best at all times of the year. The most commonly known method of lawn care is to cut the grass on a regular basis. Weeds can cause damage to a lawn, so steps must be taken to remove these plants from the grass. Some of the ways of maintaining a lawn through mowing include:

The lawn care you provide for the grass in the different seasons of the year depends on the climate of the area in which you live. During the cold winter months, when there is ice and snow, most people do not do any lawn care. In these areas, lawn maintenance starts in the spring and continues through the summer and fall up until the time of the first frost. Spring or early summer is the best time to seed a lawn in any climate. Putting in a new lawn requires a load of topsoil, but any lawn can benefit from a light coating of topsoil in the spring.

In the fall, the grass should be mowed at a lower height than in summer and any thatch buildup should be removed. Fertilizer can be applied at this time as well. In areas where there is no snow or ice in winter, although you won’t have to mow your lawn, this is a good time to add composted material to act as fertilizer.
