How To Achieve A Year-Round Pristine Lawn?

January 30, 2023

Do you struggle to keep your lawn looking healthy all year round? Keeping your lawn looking vibrant and neat with the changing seasons can be challenging - but it’s so worth it. According to Realtor Darren Roberston, a large majority of homeowners say kerb appeal is important in their choice of home, so keeping your yard looking good is especially crucial if you’re planning on selling. Follow this seasonal guide to keep your lawn looking perfect in all weather.

Spring

Spring is the most festive season for plant life. With the warming temperatures and increased light, your lawn should begin to thrive again in spring. Yet, it still requires upkeep to return it to its flourishing state.

Awaken your grass after the cold winter by neatening it with mowing and edging. It is recommended to start looking after your lawn in mid-spring, once the ground has begun to warm up.

Begin your lawn care by clearing leaves, twigs, and brown grass, known as thatch. Spring is the most critical time of year for fertilizing to boost it for the upcoming summer months. While the days are warmer, the nights may still be cool, so be careful when watering. Stick your finger into the soil to check if it is dry enough; avoid watering damp soil.

Summer

As the months grow hotter and the sun more fierce, the temptation is to water your garden more deeply. However, it is more important that you only water your garden correctly. Mornings or evenings are optimal for watering your lawn to keep it looking lush, as it allows the grass to absorb moisture before the midday sun can evaporate.

Have you considered a more eco-friendly way of keeping your lawn healthy if sprinklers keep the grass looking pristine? Australia produces some of the most waste globally, contributed to by the energy and water used by sprinkler systems.

While it might be more effort, watering it yourself will prove more sustainable if your lawn is manageable and ensure that you have an eco-friendly irrigation system.

Compacted soil makes for an unhealthy lawn in dry weather. In these scorching temperatures, make sure to aerate your grass. You can use a garden fork to pierce the soil as deeply as possible. You can even consider starting a lawn care business if you're more motivated.

Fall

Despite the cooler temperatures, your lawn still requires maintenance for you to enjoy it through the fall. Regularly mowing the grass will help keep it fresh and healthy. While the perfect blade length is variable, it is good to cut it short enough, as cutting it more than 2/3rds leaves it at risk from sun damage.

The number of leaves that need raking will rocket, but dry leaves are perfect for composting or using mulch to protect your soil.

You might also need to think about protecting weaker plants from the coming cold. Can potted plants be positioned in a sunnier or more sheltered spot? Know how the cold weather affects your local area and what you can do to save your plants from frost.

Winter

Now that the cold is beginning, you might only be enjoying your lawn as much in these winter months if you have a winter house or cabin to retreat to. But you still want it to look nice when you look out at it from your kitchen window, where you’re wrapped in many jumpers.

Remember our warning not to cut the grass too short in the fall. This is even more important now that you need your grass to catch as many sun rays as possible.

It is also recommended that you fertilize your lawn within the first few weeks of winter to encourage the ground to soak up the nutrients before any frost sets in to allow your lawn to bounce back healthily when spring returns.

Summing up

With changes in weather and the frequency of using your garden, keeping good care of your lawn all year round can be challenging. Following our basic steps should make your lawn pristine and perfect year-round. Persevere throughout the winter to keep it thriving, and your yard will be vibrant and ready for full enjoyment in the spring.
