Mesa has a helpful tip for homeowners. Taking care of your lawn can be easy with a process called a Preventative Maintenance Plan (PMP). We know that owning a home can be a never-ending challenge with costs that crop up unannounced at the worst times – so taking care of key items like roof maintenance, your heating and cooling systems, and home and garden are just a few key areas around the house to focus on. And a PMP schedule will address those many small things a homeowner can to do to extend the life of your home. Since it’s Spring, we thought we’d start the PMP process with your lawn.
Our friend Troy Schrecengost at Accent Landscaping suggests focusing on four key items:
- Aeration – it’s a good idea to aerate your lawn 1-2 times a year while the weather is still cool (early Spring and/or Fall)
- Power Raking – if your dead grass, shoots and roots have a thickness of over ½ inch, this can prevent grass roots from getting the necessary amount of air an nutrients to thrive
- Fertilizing – feed your lawn with nutrients up to four times a year (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter) to help the grass grow strong
- Mowing – it’s recommended you cut your grass 1-2 times a week depending on the season and temperature, and change the direction you mow each week to prevent ruts from developing from the mower wheels
Taking the time to address key things around your home – like the lawn – will allow you to relax and enjoy it more in the weeks and months ahead!
