Lawn care is an essential part of home ownership. If you fail to keep your yard in good shape, it is likely to dramatically decrease the overall curb appeal of your property. Lawn maintenance, however, is not everyone’s cup of tea. If you are someone who would rather not spend your weekends pulling weeds and mowing the lawn, this guide is for you.
Watering the lawn is one chore that often takes a lot of time, especially for families who have large yards. In this particular guide, you will discover a few key tips that will take watering your yard from one of your most challenging chores to one of your most efficient around-the-house jobs.
Attach an impact sprinkler to a tripod – Impact sprinklers are awesome lawn watering tools because they’re able to cover a fairly large area with essentially no effort on your part (save for setting it up the first time and turning it on). Attaching one of these sprinklers to a tripod is an even smarter idea, because the water will spray over hedges, bushes, and gardens, reaching most parts of your yard. You can also adjust the tripod’s legs to secure it on uneven ground. If your yard is especially big, strategically set up two or three of these.
Fertilize your lawn less – While fertilizer is can be important to maintaining a lush, green lawn, too much of it can also dry out your grass, requiring you to water it more frequently. For best results, consider fertilizing just a couple of times per year (late spring and early fall are ideal) and speak to a lawn care professional if you have questions about exactly how often you should fertilize your lawn in the region where you live.
Hire professionals to install an irrigation system – If your lawn is simply too much for you to keep up with, contacting lawn maintenance professionals who can install an irrigation system for you might be your best option. Today’s irrigation systems are quite advanced and can even be set to automatically water your lawn on a schedule pre-determined by your lawn care experts. This is the most costly choice, but homeowners often find that it is well worth the cost!
These are just a few ways to save time when it comes to watering your lawn. Having a professional assess your yard and give you some tips is another great way to learn more about how to efficiently and easily keep your property looking amazing!
