Be The Envy Of Your Block
Hello thanks for reading my blog.In this blog i will be telling you and teaching you exactly what to do.You will know what to do to be the envy of your block with a beautiful lawn but ,also you can fire your landscaper ,your lawn care guy,yes say goodbye to your lawn doctor or tru green. I will be revealing all the secrets to you so you can do the work yourself and save 3000 a year instead of giving it to your landscaper you can use it for something else! I understand you may not be capable of doing thw work on your own maybe your too old cant lift anything heavy maybe you dont drive anymore maybe you have bad back ,maybe your disabled and your lawn is falling apart. If you answered yes to one of those then you can still have the lawn of your dreams,all you have to do is tell you the secrets i tell you to your son,or daughter cousin or nephew or neice and they will just implement my system.If you still have no family and physically cant do it anymore then i understand you want to hire someone.For everyone of us that want to be a diy type of guy then this blog post is for you.Instead of spending 3000 a year all you have to spend is somewhere between 35 and 150 dollars it all depends.Depending on your lawn you may just have to spend just 65 dollars for the year i will be explaining everything in the next few blog posts. and will provide a schedule you can follow yourself basically a month to month plan you follow and know what to do each month.The most important thing you can do in early spring is dethatch your lawn they sell mid size ones you can plug in or you can rent a gas powered one but they are heavy and dangerous and loud and you could do more harm to your lawn than good if you dont know what your doing with a mechanical gas powered dethatcher .
If you follow my plan your lawn will look like this this is an actual photo taken last fall of my own lawn,i will be adding more photos soon so if you want to be the envy of your block start detatching
dont forget to aerate
I mentioned a dethatcher just remember the second most important tool you will ever use is an aerator!
once or twice a year you should be aerating so your soil does not get compacted and weeds take over your lawn. The best time to aerate is in the fall so you dont need to do it now unless you needed it and skipped it in the fall.
Most people may opt for the mechanical one you can rent from your store, It is loud and dangerous and may be hard to maneuver . I would recommend getting a small manual one that does core aeration and leaves the plugs on the ground with hollow tines you can get a manual aerator anywhere . Manual core aeration is
great if you have a small yard. Just make sure you spread the holes about 3 inches apart. Leave the plugs on the ground they will go back into the soild providing nutrients for your soil in turn will give you a healty grass
so if you see lots of weeds and your soil is compacted you may need to aerate.
