Lawn As Part Of Home And Garden Care Priorities

The home and garden are inseparable and should be treated as a unity. When potential buyers shop around for houses they look at the home and garden condition. If you thus want to impress neighbours, friends, and potential home buyers you must ensure that the garden looks just as stunning as the house.

Part of the home and garden picture is the lawn. If the lawn is not properly cared for every other plant in the garden will go unnoticed. It will be like a dirty and worn out carpet in a beautiful home where the furniture is stylish, but the walk space is terrible.

Fertiliser forms an essential part of the caring package. Applying the right quantities and the best time in the ideal combination is thus important to ensure a lush green and healthy lawn. The fertiliser must be applied when the soil is moist and the application should be followed up through light watering. The reason is simple. You will want the fertilizer to be distributed to the root area as soon as possible rather than lying on top where it will simply be of no value and will be blown away. 

Fertiliser must never be added just before heavy rains as this will simply mean fertilizer washed away. Frequent applicable dosages rather than over dosage once off will better for the lawn. You for instance, will rather want to add fertilizer in small quantities three to five times a year than one big dosage a year. The application should be even and monitored to prevent over or under application at certain spots on the lawn.

Fertiliser application forms just one part of the home and garden care package. Considerations such as lawn length, hardscaping, mowing techniques, drainage systems, watering, composting and more should also be considered. Let the experts in lawn care help.
