3 Tips to Keep Your Lawn Looking Great


A good lawn can be one of the most attractive features of a home.

It’s a place for you and your family to grill, play frisbee and enjoy weather on the good days.

However, a good lawn requires care.

Small animals and weather can pose as threats and cause damage to an otherwise well-kept lawn. Here are a few tips to keep your lawn well- groomed.

Keep Your Lawn Clear of Any Grubs

Grubs are small, slimy gray insects.

They can often crawl around on the ground and are a popular food of choice for small animals, especially moles.

Don’t allow the grub population in your lawn to become too large. If you’re seeing more than a few grubs every couple of square feet, buy insect spray for the yard.

Eliminating a food source for critters will keep them away.

If You Have a Pet, Clean Up After Them

If you’re a pet owner, keep an eye on when your pet releases waste on the lawn. The waste can damage your lawn and ruin nearby grass.

Clean up after your pets as quickly as possible and spray the area with water after you finish. If neighboring pets or stray animals are leaving behind waste, consider putting up a fence around your lawn.

Keep an Eye out for Holes

Holes create two issues.

The first is that they are unsightly and not a good look for any lawn. The second is that holes can kill grass and ruin the lawn’s foundation.

Moles and voles are two wild animals most likely to dig in your lawn.

Set traps to kill them if you spot holes in your lawn. If your pets are digging holes in your lawn, train them not to, or find some other way for them to expend their energy.

A good lawn takes a lot of work. If you know how to solve problems that pop up, maintaining a lawn can be that much easier.
