Tips for Your Lawn- Have the Greenest Grass in Ventura County!

Tips for Your Lawn- Have the Greenest Grass in Ventura County!

When you see a beautiful lawn full of luscious, green grass, don’t you just get grass envy? Especially, when you drive home to your lawn and see brown spots and patches, and dry-looking grass. Yuck! Having a beautiful lawn adds so much appeal to the home. However, that kind of grass can be hard to get, or maintain.

Not everyone has a green thumb, but we are here to tell you that you do not have to be a super star yard know-it-all to get the kind of grass that you want. Here, we have some super simple tips to get that kind of gorgeous lawn you can walk around bare-footed on. There are really 4 main parts to keeping your grass perfect, that you need to know about.

The need to breathe

In order for the lawn to be good-looking, it needs room to breathe so it can grow and stay strong. The best ways for your lawn to breathe is by keeping debris like leaves, pine cones, and miscellaneous items off of it. The next step is to aerate the grass when it is damp. You want the soil to be a little damp, too. You can just get a simple aerator at the local home improvement store and it requires nothing but your time and a little energy by walking around and placing your foot on the tool so it can press into the soil.

Keep it fed

Now that your yard can breathe, it needs to eat. Warm months are growing season for your lawn and that is the time to fertilize the yard. Sometimes, the grass can lose that deep or bright green color (depending on your grass). You can use nitrogen to enhance the color.

Mow the lawn regularly

This is an important part and often the hardest part. But, you want to keep the lawn cut down by 1/3 of the blade or less. In order to maintain this, be sure and keep the blades to your mower nice and sharp.

Water it the correct way

Watering is another important tip. You cannot always wait on the rain to keep your grass wet. There are times when you will need to do this yourself. There is a right and wrong way to water grass, if you can believe it! The key is to water your grass deeply enough versus often enough. The best time to water your grass is actually in the morning because the dawn mildew helps you. Once the sun hits and heats the yard, it dries the grass and it will take you longer.
