Have a Dry, Ugly & Rough Lawn? What to Do

Posted on: 24 January 2017

If your lawn is discolored and you have dry or dead patches of grass, it's time to look into irrigation options. There are a lot of things you can do to get a healthy looking lawn, without having to tend to it daily.

You should have one or two professional lawn care companies and service providers come to your property to look at your lawn. They can suggest things and test the soil and the grass to see what is wrong. Here are just a few ideas that you can discuss. 

Underground Automatic Irrigation

An underground automatic irrigation system has many advantages for a homeowner who isn't always home to care for their lawn. The benefits include the following:

  • Sensors that prevent overwatering or water waste
  • Timers that run the system when no one is home
  • Automatic setup for easy use when needed

If you don't want to always have to remember to water the lawn, and you don't want to pull out hoses and sprinkler heads or bars, then the automatic system is the most ideal.

Natural Fertilizing Options

Fertilizing and treating the grass so it's green and healthy, without putting a lot of chemicals into the ground water are the most beneficial. You want to find out if you can use some organic fertilizers to help your grass grow in thick and with a great green color that makes it look healthy and lush. The landscaping company can do the fertilization treatments for you.

Weed and Pest Control

Weeds, plants and pests could be causing the problems that you have with the lawn. When the soil is tested and the landscaping experts do a survey for your lawn, they should be able to provide you with a report and an estimate. These will include what treatments are needed and what the cost will be to get rid of your problematic lawn destroyers.

There are a lot of issues that have to do with your geographic location, and how you take care of your property that could be affecting how your grass looks. When your lawn looks good and is in good condition it will improve your curb appeal, and it will help maintain the value of your home. Find a company such as Michael's Irrigation Inc to do irrigation installation, and that can help with the different concerns you have about keeping your lawn soft, thick, and green.
