Your healthy yard is more than what meets the eyes. Healthy lawn and landscape filter the air of pollutants and prevent unwanted runoff. Simply looking at trees and plants can reduce stress. Inspired? Here are some tips to make your yard look even better.
• Mow Properly:
Raising the deck height of your lawn mower is one simple thing you can do right now to improve your green space. When mowing, the blade should remove no more than a 1/3 inch from the blade of grass.
• Mow at the Right Time:
Professionals recommend to not mow right after it rains. Mowing wet grass will cause clumping and ruts. This also leaves the lawn more susceptible to certain diseases.
• Let the Clippings Drop:
“Grass-cycling” your clippings allows nitrogen and other nutrients to return to the soil. Even better, it eliminates the step of hauling around heavy bags of yard waste.
• Invest in Smarter Watering Tools:
An irrigation system saves time on watering chores, but one that uses smart technology and weather-based data will apply water only when your lawn and garden need it.
• Consider Natural Landscaping:
The next time you choose flowers, shrubs, or trees, opt for species native to your region. These plants have adapted to the climate, so they’re more resilient to your region’s weather patterns and require less watering than exotic species.
• Work with a Pro:
If you’re seeking fresh ideas to amp up your landscaping, or you want to maximize its full environmental and enjoyment benefits, consider turning to the expertise of a lawn care or landscape professional. With help from a professional, you can have the outdoor oasis of your dreams.
