Have You Purchased Your First Home? 2 Lawn Care Tips

Home & Garden Blog

If you purchased your first home, there are many things you must do to keep things in good condition. One thing is taking proper care of the lawn. Doing this will ensure your lawn stays green and healthy throughout the growing season. To help you, hire a lawn treatment service if you do not have experience. Below is information on what they can do to help you. 

Fertilize Your Lawn

One thing you must do for healthy grass is apply lawn fertilizer. The lawn treatment service may first test your soil to determine the nutrients it needs. They may take samples from different areas of your yard.

If you are planting new grass, the contractor may add compost to the soil as compost adds nutrients. Compost is made of manure, which has a lot of nutrients and natural fertilizer. If you are not planting new grass, they can treat an existing lawn. They will do this by putting a top dressing of compost monthly. The compost works its way into the soil.  

The lawn treatment service will suggest fertilizing the lawn in spring after the last frost. They may apply a quick-release fertilizer during the spring months. If they fertilize later in the spring, they may apply a slow-release fertilizer. The lawn treatment service may also suggest fertilizing a second time in the late summer. This helps the grass develop a stronger root system to withstand the cold, winter months. 

Remove and Prevent Weeds

If you are dealing with lawn weeds, they can be hard to remove and control on your own. Weeds can be dangerous for your grass as they compete for nutrients and water. Crabgrass is a common weed that pops up in the spring months. To take care of this, the lawn treatment service can apply a pre-emergent crabgrass treatment. This prevents the crabgrass from growing. 

The lawn treatment service will apply broadleaf weed control to prevent other weeds from popping up on your lawn. If you are already seeing weeds on your lawn, the lawn treatment service can apply a broad weed treatment on your lawn to kill the weeds. Check your lawn regularly for weeds and remove them as you see them to keep them under control. 

There are other things a lawn treatment service can do, such as mowing your lawn and aerating your lawn. For more information on lawn treatment, contact a professional near you.

Furniture to Grow Old With

Even as a child, I was an indoor person. Despite the fact that I lived on a ranch and had a hundred acres of land to roam on, I preferred reading a book while sitting in the most comfortable recliner in my home. I’m referring to that soft, plush, and luxurious piece of furniture that you absolutely have to force yourself to get out of. When I became a homeowner, my primary quest was to find a suitable replacement for my childhood retreat. I researched, examined, and sat in numerous chairs before I finally found the one, the beautiful tan piece of furniture that I wanted to grow old with. On this blog, I want to share with others the importance of buying the perfect furniture items for your home, the ones you never will want to part with.
