Blog The Secret to a Lush Lawn: Maintenance Tips from Bruno's Lawn & Landscape Specialists Apr 22, 2024

Achieving a lush, green lawn is every homeowner's dream. At Bruno's Professional Lawn & Landscape, we understand the importance of proper maintenance to keep your lawn looking its best. Our team of landscape specialists has compiled a list of expert tips to help you achieve and maintain a healthy and vibrant lawn throughout the year.

1. Regular Mowing: One of the key factors in maintaining a healthy lawn is regular mowing. Keeping your grass at the appropriate height not only enhances its appearance but also promotes growth. We recommend mowing your lawn at least once a week during the growing season, but be sure not to cut the grass too short as this can stress the plants.

2. Watering: Proper watering is essential for a lush lawn. Water deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth. Watering early in the morning is ideal as it allows the grass to dry before evening, reducing the risk of disease. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to shallow roots and waterlogged soil.

3. Fertilization: Regular fertilization is crucial for a healthy lawn. Fertilize your lawn in the spring and fall to provide essential nutrients for growth. Choosing the right type of fertilizer for your grass type and soil conditions is important to ensure optimal results. Consult with our experts to determine the best fertilization schedule for your lawn.

4. Weed Control: Weeds can quickly take over a lawn if left unchecked. Regular weeding is essential to maintain a healthy turf. Use a pre-emergent herbicide in the spring to prevent weeds from germinating, and spot-treat any existing weeds with a post-emergent herbicide. Our specialists can provide recommendations for effective weed control products.

5. Aeration: Aerating your lawn helps to alleviate compaction and allow air, water, and nutrients to reach the roots. Consider aerating your lawn once a year in the spring or fall to promote healthy grass growth. Core aeration is especially beneficial for lawns with heavy foot traffic or clay soil.

6. Dethatching: Thatch buildup can prevent water, air, and nutrients from reaching the roots of the grass. Dethatch your lawn as needed to remove excess thatch and promote a healthy lawn. Thatch removal can be done using a dethatching rake or a specialized dethatching machine.

7. Professional Maintenance: Finally, consider hiring a professional lawn care service like Bruno's Professional Lawn & Landscape for regular maintenance.
