Lawn Treatment

Having a gorgeous lawn is what every homeowner dreams of and you can achieve that with a lot of planning ahead. Typically you should be plotting your lawn treatment plan at least one season ahead, if not two. That way you are prepared and can anticipate any issues that may arise and be ready to fix them.

When you initially build your treatment strategy, you have to consider several things. First, do you have a problem with using pesticides or chemical-based fertilizers? Some people have allergies or aversions to these products, some people don’t want them around their children or pets, and some people want to have a truly organic yard. If you fall into any of those categories, then chemical-based fertilizers and pesticides are not the way to go. You can instead use techniques such as spot-spraying with a natural compound, weeding by hand, and using natural fertilizers like compost. Tending to your lawn so it looks best can take up a lot of time. Consider artificial turf  for a low maintenance lawn plus it looks beautiful all year round!

For those of you who do not have problems using chemical-based products, there is a wide variety to choose from. You can purchase products that will kill the weeds, including dandelions, make your grass grow greener and fuller, and products that will even make your lawn softer to the touch. Given the wide variety of products available to treat your lawn, you should take some time to research which products are best for you and your lawn. Talk to friends and family members about what they use on their lawns to get some ideas. I personally prefer Scotts lawn care products.

The next step in your lawn treatment plan is to determine what you’re going to be doing with your lawn. Will it be one large grassy area just to look at? Will the kids or pets be running around on it? Will you be planting flowers or a vegetable garden in addition to the grass? All of these things should be taken into consideration when deciding what kinds of treatments to put on your lawn. For example, there are certain products that are good for “high traffic” areas, which you might not need if no one walks on your lawn.

Finally, you need to take a good look at your lawn and take stock of its current condition. Was last year’s attempt to plant grass seed a failure? Are there lots of brown spots on the grass from your pets? Perhaps the overall condition is good and you just need some help maintaining the current look? All of these things are important to think about when determining what kind of lawn treatment you want. If your yard needs a major overhaul, for example, just using a bit of weed killer is not going to do the job.

Keep in mind throughout this process that you do not have to go through it alone. Even if you want to maintain your lawn yourself, there are lawn service companies that can consult with you on what to do with your lawn and they can give you some great advice, usually for a small fee.

Not everyone is a lawn treatment expert, but with a little research and some planning, you can really make your lawn a sight to behold.
