Do you want a beautiful lawn this year? Summer is the ideal season to show off your beautiful grass! Follow these tips and hacks for lawn maintenance to ensure your plot is up to balance, and you’ll have a gorgeous green yard that will make your grassland fine-looking!

From Cornerstone Homebuying, here are some helpful hacks that might help you achieve your desire for your lawn! 

1. Prevent weeds from sprouting.

Using a pre-emergent treatment that prevents their seeds from sprouting to get rid of weeds. Pre-emergent herbicides are only effective before the weeds have sprouted, so some forethought is required. Making a lawn care routine before spring arrives can be beneficial! Don’t want to buy a produced pesticide and prefer to use a natural herbicide instead? Try gluten from corn!

2. Water your yard first thing in the morning.

Morning is the best time to water your lawn since the sun will aid in drying. Because there will be persistent dampness, watering at night can cause illnesses in the grass. Water is necessary for the roots. However, your grass should not have stagnant water for long periods. You can track when to water your grass by creating a lawn maintenance schedule.

3. Remove any debris from your yard if there is any.

Any twigs, pine trees, or twigs fall within this category. You should remove debris from the lawn because they block sunlight, which is harmful to the growing grass. A clean yard is easy to mow. It’s much easier to enjoy lawn maintenance!

4. Give your lawn some nourishment.

Apply fertilizer, either water or granular, at least once a year. On the other hand, overfeeding can cause fungal problems and stunted growth. There are numerous tools and services available to assist you in determining when and how much to feed your grass. A lawn maintenance schedule can also help you plan when to feed your grass, and if you stick to it for a time, you’ll be able to see what fertilizers work and what don’t.

5. Don’t Mow Wet Grass

It’s human nature to want to go outside and get it done, but wait until the rain stops and give it some time to dry up. Mowing wet grass takes more effort and is hard on lawnmowers. It’s far better to wait until the sun comes out.  

6. Fake Turf For Pets

End up with a torn lawn or dead spots because of the pets? You wouldn’t be the only one. So, consider installing fake turf. It will deter pets from digging and keep mud from being tracked into the house. Plus… it’s one lawn that never needs to be mowed.  

7. Septic Tank Plants

Have a septic tank and are sick of looking at its cover on the lawn? Cover it with a layer of mulch and some beautiful flowers. The mulch can always be moved if access to the tank is needed.  

8. Get a Riding Lawn Mower

Sick of how long it takes to mow the lawn? While it’s a bit spendy, it might be worth the money to invest in a riding lawn mower to get more done in less time (and with less effort). 

9. Use salt

Salt can get rid of weeds in places without plants. It is great for getting rid of weeds in a driveway or on the side of a house. But beware that salt will also kill other plants.
