Lawn Care Tips For Healthy Green Grass

Lawn Care Tips For Healthy Green Grass

"It's getting warm enough and the grass needs the food so it's a very good time to be fertilizing right now," Lawn expert, Jim Anderson said.

Now is a busy time for Jim Anderson, he runs his own lawn care business and stops by several houses throughout the day to treat their lawn.

"Basically, I pull up to the yard and I look it over and see what it actually needs and address it from there for the fertilizer of for the mowing," Anderson said. 

Anderson recommends making sure your blade is sharp enough before you starting mowing.

"The smartest thing is to have sharp blades and when it comes to the mowing and the fertilizing and the spraying you have to watch what you're doing,” Anderson said.

Anderson says fertilizing is key. Every lawn needs the right amount of nutrients to look green and healthy. The right amount of fertilizer depends on the type of soil, levels of humidity and precipitation.

"A good maintaining is a half inch to maybe an inch a week and right now it's just a little too early for using the sprinkler systems just keep them off for right now but when it starts heating up then turn them on but right now just let mother nature do it. At least try to get a good half inch of water on it a week just to help it out especially if it comes to the dryer season,” Anderson said.
