Green YardLet the competition begin. Everyone has started mowing and fertilizing their lawns, but how will your lawn look going into summer and the fall. For me, it is all about having a dark, rich, green lawn.

Check out this video. Lots of tips here. I actually perform a number of the tasks listed here.

Some the items I really think make a difference that were mentioned here were:

Get a soil test for your lawn. I prefer sending the sample to a laboratory like Midwest Laboratories

Water a few times a week for a longer period of time to maximize the amount of water that is getting to the roots.

Mow with a sharp lawn mower blade.

Lightly water fertilizer into the ground right after application.

There are many tips from this video.  Check it out!

Good Luck with your lawn care efforts.
