Tips To Keep Your Lawn Fresh

freshly mowed lawn

Every homeowner dreams of a lush green lawn, but keeping your lawn in tip-top shape 365 days out of the year can be a big job. Here are a few tips on how to keep your lawn looking fresh all year long.

Fertilizer: Fertilizing your lawn a few times a year can go a long way. It’s good to fertilize once in the spring, then again in midsummer with a food blend higher in nitrogen than other elements. Fertilizing too much can mean too much growth, by reducing the amount of fertilizer you can save time and energy.  It is best to fertilize after mowing and when the grass is dry to help it stick to the blades

Take Care of your Lawn Mower: Mowing your lawn regularly is important to keep it looking full and lush all year long. In order to do so, you need to keep your lawn mower in good condition. Make sure to drain gasoline and oil from your lawnmower when you are done using it. Any gasoline that stays in the tank for over a year can gum up your carburetor.

Watering: It is best to water your lawn in the early hours of the morning. This gives the lawn an opportunity to dry before nightfall when many types of fungus are most active. This is also usually a non-peak time for water supply. It is better to water well a couple of times a week than lightly daily. Deep soaking encourages deep roots growth while light watering encourages roots to stay close to the surface of the soil making your lawn susceptible to heat and drought.

Repair Brown Spots: Many times your pets can cause unwanted brown spots on your lawns. There is a high nitrogen content in pet urine which causes it to burn the grass. It is best to water these areas well within 8 hours to help dilute the high nitrogen levels. If these spots go untreated then you will need to repair them to help get your green grass back.

5 Weekend Projects to Increase the Value of your Home

The work week can get insanely busy. There’s no limit to what work might ask of you, and worst of all, when you finally get home, your energy is likely on empty. For most homeowners, the best time to get a project done is going to be the weekend but given the short amount of time available on Saturday and Sunday, its best to plan to maximize that time as efficiently as possible. Here are 5-weekend projects that increase the value of your home in the most noticeable way possible.


Nothing says more about your home than the look of the outside. A messy landscaping job can likely point to a messy interior, and that’s a major turn off should you ever decide to try and sell the home. Adding mulch and some plants around a mailbox could even be enough to increase the perspective value of your home, and larger projects only provide a larger return on investments.

Renovate the Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most highly noticeable changes that you can make to a home. The countertops alone could help boost the value of your home by a few thousand dollars. Not to mention, when selling a home, it is a huge buyer’s hotspot to check and see what condition the kitchen is in. Make the improvements now, for your sake, and the possibility of a sale in the future.

Make it Energy Efficient

Your home is likely losing value due to outdated heating and cooling tools. Not only could the actual system need an update, but the various things that keep cool and hot air in the house like windows and installation might need a tune-up too. A consultation could point you in the right direction and get your value up exponentially.

Have a Flexible Floor Plan

A flexible floor plan allows you to make any room in the house whatever you may want it to be. That ability to choose the layout is a big improvement over feeling like each room is already determined for you. If you ever choose to sell this could be a huge factor.

Update Technology

This one is just as much for you as it is your home. Updating things to provide a smart home technology experience is a great way to make home life easier. A Nest thermostat or Philips Hue lighting system could really make it feel like you are living in the future.

These changes make your home’s value skyrocket, and they’re easy to knock out in a weekend!
