1. Envy: You covet your neighbor’s grass
Don’t just admire your neighbor’s thick, lush lawn: Turn the tables. Proper lawn care will make your grass greener than a St. Patrick’s Day beer.
- Aerate your lawn in spring and fall to power up grass with oxygen, water, and nutrients. In addition, lawn aeration controls thatch buildup, reduces water runoff, and creates holes in your turf that lets grass roots spread and grow.
- Eliminate brown grass by making sure your sprinklers are properly adjusted and that common weeds are under control. Also, check for lawn grubs that feed on grass roots. Persistent drought might make your lawn go dormant; when temps drop and rains return, your lawn will green up again.
- Clean your mower to limit lawn diseases that kill grasses. Also, sharpen your mower blade to prevent shredding the ends of grass blades.
