You probably don't think about grass on a day-to-day to basis. Those of us who keep a garden takes extra care of the flowers and trees, but we tend to forget that grass affects the overall look of our outdoor area a whole lot. After all, nobody wants to hang out or look out the window and see a dry, brown lawn. To help you get started, we've gathered a couple of basic practices that can help you keep your grass green:

Cutting

Most homeowners make the mistake of cutting grass too short to space out mowing sessions. If you remove too much, it reduces vigor and color. Make sure to cut no more than 1/3 of the leaf blades to encourage growth.

Watering

Watering is very important to keep your lawn vibrant as it helps develop roots. Contrary to popular practice, grass doesn't have to be watered everyday. Make sure you do it two to three times a week, around to six to eight inches deep.

RL Tip: Water in the early hours of the morning to reduce evaporation.

Fertilizing

Lawns need fertilizer to supply nutrients that are lacking in the soil. However, a lot of homeowners make the mistake of shocking their grass back to health. Avoid overfeeding your grass by keeping in mind that the ratio of water and fertilizer should always be equal. If you're unsure about the next steps, always consult with a professional or do your research first.
