When it comes to your lawn, it could be your pride and joy, or it could be an embarrassment depending on what your goals are. Fortunately, taking care of your lawn doesn’t have to be too complicated – and if you are experiencing specific turf management problems, there are a few key things you can do to improve the outlook.
- Soil Sampling – If you have an intrinsic problem with brown spots and poor turf quality, it might not be your grass. Soil sampling may be the best way to determine if you need to go beyond the grass roots to find new solutions for improving the health of your lawn. Once you know soil deficiencies, you can add the appropriate corrective measures.
- Fertilization – Fertilization is often one of the most effective ways to improve the quality of your soil and therefore your turf. No two fertilization treatments are the same, however, so knowing what kinds of nutrients you need will be important. Paired with the right watering, your lawn will begin looking better and better.
- Grass Treatments – Sometimes, grass is susceptible to disease, or there are types of grass that just look bad compared to the rest of your lawn (crab grass anyone?). If this is the case, an important step with turf management may be treating your grass for the specific issues that seem to be plaguing you. This way, you’ll have a more consistent look and feel throughout the year.
