You don’t have to be an overachiever or have a green thumb to have a good looking lawn. In fact, these bits of wisdom will show you just how easy it is for even the laziest of homeowners to keep and maintain a head-turner of a lawn.


Mowing It The Right Way

Raise the blade on your mower to one of the higher settings. In addition to requiring less mowing and watering, the higher grass blades do a good job of making life difficult for weeds to bully their way into your yard. It’s very important in this region to refrain from mowing during drought conditions as the grass blades will dry out very quickly.


Fertilizer: Your Lawn’s Bread

There’s no better return on your lawn investment than regular fertilization. Just like any other living thing, grass needs to be fed properly to stay and look healthy. Tools like broadcast spreaders and drop spreaders mean the job can normally be done in a half-hour or less. Fertilizing your lawn three to four times per year should easily be enough to keep your lawn looking good.


Watering Your Lawn the Smart Way

Watering your lawn every day is not doing it or you any favors. Besides running up your water bill, this routine is also creating a very shallow and weak root system for your lawn. Plan on watering once a week for an hour or so. Also, watering in the morning is best as the water will have more time to work its way to the roots, and the grass blades will dry more quickly, putting a halt to the potential for disease.


Edging Angler

Edging your lawn can really making it pop. It’s very much like putting a frame around your lawn. But you don’t have to edge every time you mow. By turning the angle of the edger towards the grass, you should be fine with edging during every other mow.


Go Au Naturale

You can reduce the size of your lawn by devoting portions of it to natural landscaping with rocks, plants and ground covers.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
