You’ve heard before that first impressions are lasting impressions. The same goes for your lawn.

Your home’s lawn is the first thing your guests see when arriving at your home and the last thing they see when they leave. Because of this, you want to make sure your lawn looks the best it can… even in between your professional lawn mowing services.

Here are 5 ways to maintain your yard when you’re in between lawn mowing services.

  1. Water Your Lawn

Watering your lawn is an essential part of keeping your yard plush and green. But it’s not just about watering it whenever you feel like it. It is best to water your lawn 2-3 times a week. You also have to pay attention to when you water it too. Watering in the middle of the day can actually damage your grass. If you have a sprinkler system, set it to where your sprinkler will run before sunrise.

  1. Know When Your Lawn Is Begging for Help

A major rule of thumb is that when you step on your grass, it should spring back up. So if your grass doesn’t do this, your grass is more than likely begging for some TLC. Try watering it more or even feeding it nutrients that are found in the grass seeds and fertilizer. If you find that doesn’t help, reach out to a professional lawn company to get your yard back on track.

  1. Don’t Forget About Your Shrubs

Your grass is the main portion of your landscaping, however, it’s important not to forget about your shrubs and flowers too. Think of them as the jewelry of your yard. To ensure you keep them beautiful, be sure to water them as well and maintain their shape.

  1. Go Long When It Comes to Your Grass Length

During the spring and summer months, it can get really hot in the Dallas area. This can cause your soil to dry out easier which can in turn cause your grass to die. To help conserve the water within your soil, keep your grass about 3 1/2 inches’ tall to help shade your soil.

  1. Stay Off Your Lawn Whenever Possible

While playing in your lawn can be a lot of fun, doing it too much can actually weaken your grass. Just like carpet, the more traffic you put on it, the more wear and tear will show. Whenever possible, keep the lawn playing to a minimum.

Bonus Tip: Stay on a Consistent Schedule

Whatever you decide to do to maintain your lawn, just be sure you are consistent. Being consistent in your watering and maintenance schedule will help ensure your lawn looks great year round.
