Get Your Lawn Green and Lush

 

If your lawn isn’t as green and lush as your neighbors’, a few maintenance adjustments may help. The easy way to not screw up your lawn is to set your mower as high as it will go and make sure your mower blade is very sharp, so you’re cutting the grass blade, not tearing it. Here at Glen’s Lawn Service we know that when you cut it lower, the grass doesn’t have the leaf material to do the photosynthesis that it needs to sustain itself.

 

Apply fertilizer twice a year, around Memorial Day and Labor Day. If you do those two fertilizer applications, and mow the lawn fairly high, Glen’s Lawn Service says you have an eight-out-of-10 chance of having a lawn that will help sell your house.

The more you get your lawn cut, the more healthy grass shoots you will have which results in a more lush and healthy lawn over time.

 

Mulching is a vital part of a healthy lawn because it returns much needed nutrients to your lawn after mowing. When mowing is done consistently, mulching can be done with shorter blades of grass. Returning shorter blades of grass to your lawn is much healthier than waiting until the grass is longer because the longer blades are weaker and less nutrient-rich.
