Lush Green Lawn for Fantastic Curb Appeal

Maybe you don’t have a green thumb, but don’t despair!  The grass CAN be greener on your side of the fence. With spring right around the corner, now is the perfect time to start working on a thick carpet of grass for your yard.

Here are some tips for growing a lawn that will have your neighbors GREEN with envy:

  1. Start by reseeding and fertilizing. If you have bare spots in your grass, taking the time to reseed now will pay off this spring. Make sure you fertilize for optimal growth and keep the area moist until you see new growth. If you don’t have time to do this yourself, you can hire someone to do it. Here are the 5 Best Lawn Seeding Companies in Huntsville AL.
  2. Look for problems that will hinder growth. Steep slopes and shady trees can potentially keep grass from growing.  You may want to consider Hydroseeding in sloped regions.  And planting fescues in shady zones will help as well.
  3. Patch dead areas with sod. Re-sodding is the best bet if you have large dead areas. Sod can be installed any time of year…just make sure you water it frequently until it sets.
  4. Look into Xeriscaping. No matter what climate you living, xeriscaping is the best way to weatherproof your lawn. This low maintenance, low cost method of landscaping will keep your lawn looking beautiful year round!

Once you have your lawn looking fabulous, you can create a fun outdoor living space to enjoy with your friends and family.  And when you’re ready to sell your home, the first impression potential buyers get from your curb appeal will have them waiting in line to see your house!
