Lawn Care Advice

It is important that you take good care of the lawn in your Cambridgeshire home – it is the first thing that people see when they look at your property. If you are a busy individual who doesn’t have time for lawn care you can hire a lawn care service to do it for you. If, however, you have the time and are a handy person you can take care of your lawn and only call in a lawn care service from time to time. Here are some lawn care tips that you can use.
An overgrown law is unsightly. When you notice that the grass is taller than it should be it is time to take out the lawn mower. Make sure that you sharpen the blades – if you mow with a blunt mower you rip rather than cut the grass and it can lead to diseases which will kill it. You should also not mow the grass very short – this will kill it too. You should cut the top 1/3 only.
Your lawn should be watered especially in the spring and summer months. Ideally, you should do it 3 times a week. The best time to do it is in the morning or in the evening when there is no sun. This allows the water to get absorbed into the soil rather than evaporate. The best way to water our lawn is with an automated sprinkler but if you don’t have one you can use a hose instead. Make sure that the soil gets enough water without water logging it. If the summer months are very hot you can water 4 times a week.
Your lawn needs nutrition so you should fertilize it. Most gardeners use fertilizers that are made up of nitrogen, potassium and phosphates but this is not enough. For your grass to thrive it needs additional ingredients such as sulphur, copper and iron. You can buy fertilizer that contains all these ingredients in your local gardening store.
Once in a while you should call in a lawn care service such as Pro Lawn Care. They will do overall maintenance so that your lawn looks great. You can find out more about their services on their website,
