While many people may make personal new year’s resolutions, you can also set some for your home and lawn. There are often many ways homeowners can improve their lawn’s health and boost their landscape’s appearance in the next year. Making resolutions for your lawn can be rewarding as it creates a more enjoyable space for your family and increases your home’s curb appeal. But what resolutions may be worth making this year? The following new year’s resolutions for your lawn are some of the most beneficial.
Fertilize Your Soil
A good lawn always starts with great soil. You can get your lawn started on the right foot in the near year by fertilizing your soil with the necessary nutrients it requires to thrive throughout the year. Every lawn is different, so you should talk with your lawn care provider before you take action to improve your lawn’s health.
Practice Weed Control
A great lawn can quickly turn south when overrun by weeds. Take the time this year to create a weed control plan for your lawn, so you are prepared to remove the problem as soon as it arises. Pull weeds as they come up and research the best weed control options suitable for your lawn and the common weeds you encounter.
Mow Your Lawn Regularly and At the Proper Height
Good resolutions for your lawn focus on regular care and maintenance. This year, you can plan to pay attention to the seasons and put a lawn mowing schedule in place. If you are careless with your lawn mowing schedule, lawns can die out due to grass being cut too short or cut at the wrong time such as when it is too wet or too hot.
Your lawn mowing schedule should be focused on when your lawn is growing and not growing. Notice how long your grass is and its color after you mow it. During the summer, plan to mow your lawn often but keep in mind the upcoming weather conditions.
If you choose to irrigate your lawn, practice good water management by irrigating deeply and infrequently. Watering deeply and infrequently helps create a healthy lawn by encouraging deep rooting. Irrigate when the soil is dry rather than on a set schedule.
