A healthy lawn needs to be maintained during the entire whole year. Without regular attention, your lawn will likely develop poorly or are less likely to be green! The types of treatment which will need to be given mostly depend on the growing season. It is essential for homeowners to learn all about the sorts of proper care they should provide each period. Even though it usually takes a lot of work in order to manage a new lawn every season, it is essential for people who would like their own grass to remain beautiful and organic green. In many ways, the upkeep of your garden is regarded as a cycle: the good care that begins early in the year will nurture a balanced lawn throughout the summer months, care and attention through the summer months fosters a healthy lawn through the autumn season, treatment while in the fall season fosters a healthier lawn throughout the winter season, and all the care and attention in the winter months will certainly create a good lawn and garden through the springtime. Because of this not administering proper care to your lawn during a particular time of year can raise the probability of the turf suffering in health during the next month. The following are basic guidelines, tips and tricks to maintaining a healthy lawn cycle each year.

Lawn care during springtime is a very important period for a homeowner. Even though lawn care is essential all year round, spring time is especially important for ensuring a healthier lawn for the next year. Spring lawn care can be divided into two areas: repairing winter damage, and preparation for the summer months. Even if a homeowner has provided lawn care to the best of their ability during the winter, a lawn is still susceptible to various forms of winter related damage. This is especially true for lawns with at least one tree or lawns in areas where bugs, animals and other pests are likely to invade. The first step to repairing this damage for homeowners is to rake their lawn completely. This raking will ensure that dead grass is removed from the lawn, decreasing the risk of thatch development, as well as getting rid of matted patches of grass. The second task of a homeowner in the spring is to check for lawn compaction. Grass compaction occurs when grass has been subjected to heavy traffic, especially from boots, bikes or furniture. The treatment for this is to aerate the lawn, which should be done during the fall. The spring is also the time for fertilisation as well as getting rid of weeds through pulling or herbicides and the application of preventive herbicides.

Damage to a lawn can occur during the summer if the lawn is not properly cared for. Summer weather is usually hot and dry which can cause damage to lawns that are not maintained well. The main idea behind caring for a lawn during the summer is to keep it from becoming stressed. A summer lawn needs to be watered properly in order to reduce the risk for lawn stress. Summer lawns should be watered deeply to keep roots alive and thriving, but they should be watered infrequently. Consistency is vital when it comes to watering lawns during the summer. A homeowner should not allow a lawn to become brown during the summer and then attempt to water that lawn back to green. This can cause stress on the roots and plants and damage your lawn. Fertilisation is not recommended during the summer because it stresses the roots of a lawn.

Fall time brings about cooler and wetter weather for lawns, in contrast to the hot and dry weather of the summer. Fall lawn care concentrates on preparing the lawn for the cold of the winter, repairing any damage done to the lawn during summertime, and keeping the lawn in top shape throughout the fall. Lawns which went dormant during the summer due to the heat can be replenished with water during the fall and allowed to turn green again.It's also important for homeowners to rake their lawns often to remove fallen and dead leaves. Dead or fallen leaves will smother grass leaves and curb the grass growth on a lawn. If thatch develops, it should be removed as soon as possible to avoid more serious lawn damage. Lawns which had compaction during the spring need to be aerated during the fall, when aeration does the mot good. Homeowners should also fertilise their lawns deeply to prepare them for the upcoming winter cold. Just before fall ends, a lawn should be cut to about 3 inches tall.


Year-round lawn care is important in maintaining a healthy lawn. Lawns must be maintained differently depending on the season of the year, and caring for a lawn during each season is vital in order to maintain a healthy lawn. It is important for any homeowner who wants a healthy lawn to follow lawn care guidelines during every season. It's important that lawns are inspected for damage during every season, and that that damage is taken care of during the appropriate time--for example, spring compaction needs to be treated by fall aeration, especially when dealing with garden rooms or shelters. Homeowners especially need to remain consistent when providing quality lawn care for their lawns. A homeowner who performs hard work on their lawn all year will be rewarded with a beautiful lawn that will be the envy of the neighbourhood.
