6 Ways to Instantly Improve Your Lawn

6 Ways to Instantly Improve Your Lawn

A healthy lawn needs to be more than just a patch of grass. A healthy lawn provides a comfortable place to walk, sit or play. Lawn maintenance sounds like yard work when really it is a simple way to improve you home. Just as people judge a book by its cover, so do they judge a home by its lawn.

Mower Blade Height

If you do not have a uniformly green lawn, the problem may actually stem from the height of your mower blades. Improve the color of your lawn by setting the mower blades so that no more than a third of the current height of blades of grass get lopped off.


Synthetic lawn fertilizers high in nitrogen give a deceptive appearance of a healthy lawn while actually raising the risk of damage due to fungus and insects. Using a slow-acting organic fertilizer is a more effective lawn care tip.


Another valuable lawn care tip that improves the effects of watering and more decomposition more efficient is aeration. Aeration is simply a fancy word for making holes in the grass. Do it with athletic spikes or even a stick sharpened at one end.


Match the watering of your lawn to the effects of evaporation. Avoid watering during or immediately after the hottest part the day to beat the effects of evaporation. If a healthy green lawn is what you really desire, then start each day off in the morning by watering the grass.


Cut out a small area of a damaged lawn and replace it with a matching piece taken from the section that isn’t highly visible. Tamp down both segments in their respective areas the result is an instant improvement of an unsightly flaw.

Weed Killing

One very easy way to kill off the problem of weeds is to stop parking vehicles on the grass. Weeds are more likely to spring from compacted soil than loose soil. Parking your car in the garage or on the driveway is actually a form of lawn maintenance.

Why it’s Important to Help Your Lawn Recover

Why it’s Important to Help Your Lawn Recover

Droughts can cause a lot of damage to your beautiful lush green lawns, and this damage is often permanent. Even winters can cause the grass to become dormant. As the rainy season approaches a lot of the turf will recover, but if the damage is too severe, you may need to renovate your lawn completely. As a result, it’s important that you are proactive in taking measures to help your lawn recover.

How to help your lawn recover?

These simple steps are all that you need to do to keep your lawn healthy.

  • Remove patches of dead lawn: Remove dead or damaged patches, so that you can lose the damaged area and proceed with recovery measures.
  • Seeding: Reseeding will save you the trouble of having to renovate your lawn completely. It’s an inexpensive way to help your recover to its original lush green state.
  • Return to routine maintenance: Just like you keep your body in shape by regular exercise and diet, help your lawn recover by consistent watering, mowing, and aeration.
  • Remove the grass, sand and pebbles – These hinder the growth of the grasses. It’s a good idea to vacuum these up – stop only when you hear no stone being sucked up by the vacuum cleaner. This will help grasses grow more quickly and freely.
  • Mow the Grass – During winters, mow the grass short – this will ensure that your lawn has a better chance of surviving the harsh winter conditions.

When Should You start With Lawn Recovery

Ideally, waiting for the drought to be over, so that you can then start with recovery measures isn’t in the best interests of your lawn, because that puts it at the risk of permanent damage. Although some states do not allow for water being used for lawns in the drought season, if you can still irrigate your lawn, you can get it on the path to recovery. Feeding your lawn now will help you in the long run.

If you still wait for a long time, the lawn will use up all the nutrients, and the damage keeps getting worse and renovation becomes a huge task. Gardening can become a whole lot more fun, if you can take care of your lawn the right way.
