Homeowners know that a lawn requires particular attention. Follow these eco-friendly maintenance tips for a beautiful lawn that will resist drought and other environmental stresses.
Adjust mowing height to the season
Cut your grass 5 cm tall (2 in.) in the spring and fall, and 8 cm tall (3 in.) during summer. Longer grass will be more drought-resistant and therefore require less watering. Do not mow during periods of high heat or when the soil is too moist.
SHOP LAWN MOWERS
PRACTICE “GRASSCYCLING”
Grass clippings are a 100% natural fertilizer for your lawn. With “grasscycling”, you’ll be able to cut down your fertilizer use by up to 25%. Rake up clippings that are too long and spread them evenly over the lawn.
SHOP RAKES
ADOPT RESPONSIBLE WATERING TECHNIQUES
Water early in the morning or in the evening when temperatures are cooler and there is less wind; you will lose less water to evaporation. Let water penetrate 10 to 15 cm (4-6 in.) and use an electronic timer to limit water loss.
SHOP LAWN SPRINKLERS
CHOOSE STURDY WATERING ACCESSORIES
To make your life easier, opt for accessories made of tough materials that require no maintenance and won't corrode. A spike sprinkler is ideal for even irrigation and wider coverage while a hose is a great multipurpose tool. Consider the use of a water timer as well.
SHOP ACCESSORIES
USE THE RIGHT FERTILIZER AT THE RIGHT TIME
In the spring, use a fertilizer with higher nitrogen content, where the first number is higher than the other two (like 12-0-4 or 9-3-4). In late-summer and fall, use a product with a higher potassium content, where the last number is higher (like 4-0-12). It will prepare the lawn for the rigours of winter.
SHOP FERTILIZERS
APPLY NATURAL GRANULAR FERTILIZERS
Using a natural granular fertilizer generally requires one or two applications per year. Apply fertilizer with a fertilizer spreader on dry and freshly-mown lawn. Choose a spreader equipped with a safety stop, to avoid spillage, and a flow control regulator.
