If your lawn is looking dry and sad, don’t lose hope just yet! With a few landscaping steps, you can bring your lawn back to a beautiful green and lush state! Here are five steps to follow to bring your lawn back to life so that you can enjoy your outdoor space!
1. Dormancy or Dead?
Dormant: In the colder months, there is a good chance your lawn will go into a dormant stage. If your grass is brown and crunchy in the colder months, think of it as hibernating. Your grass is saving all its nutrients and energy to grow thick and green again once the weather warms up.
Dead: If it’s not a dormancy season, and your grass isn’t growing with water and sunshine and is easily being pulled up in chunks – your lawn may be dead.
Reasons your lawn may be dead include:
- Improper Watering
- Incorrect Mowing
- Pet Spots
- Insect Infestation
3. To Seed or Sod?
Next, give your lawn the kickstart it needs! Seeding your lawn means starting from scratch and growing new grass, this method is less expensive but requires patience. Sod is the transplant of grass that is already matured, while this option is more expensive – it will give you instant results!
4. Fertilization and Watering
After you’ve either laid down seed or sod, fertilization is crucial! If you seed your lawn, we recommend immediate fertilization. If there is fresh sod in your yard, we recommend waiting around 4 – 6 weeks to fertilize. Consistent watering is now the key, water your lawn daily so it stays moist.
