How To Keep Grass Green

The pride of any homeowner is their lawn. Countless hours are spent seeding, fertilizing, and watering to ensure that a full thick grass grows where it’s supposed to be, free from weeds or dead spots.

While the initial planting process is relatively simple, keeping grass green is a more challenging task. If you are having trouble getting your grass to grow or keeping it green, consider the following tips on how to keep your grass green.

Care Methods

Since 2017, Americans have spent over 29 billion dollars on lawn care. However, lawn care doesn’t have to break the bank.  To maintain a healthy green lawn on your own, be sure to:

·    Avoid Over Watering – Just like too little water can ruin your grass, so can too much water.

·    Remove Weeds – Parasitic plants can absorb water intended for your grass. Be sure to pull weeds from the root to ensure adequate water reaches your plants.
