One way to ensure you can find the perfect lawn care company is to fully know what kind of services you need. Hence, even if you’re not personally doing the maintenance and care of your gardens and lawns, it’s still important to know the lawn care basics.
Applying weed killers and fertilizers
You have to consider the timing and geographical location when using these on your grass. Apply weed killers before they develop roots or reproduce. The early spring and summer are usually the best times to do this. Meanwhile, fertilizing should be done in early spring to help the grass’s root development.
Use the proper tools
Know and understand the right tools you need to use to maintain healthy grass in your lawns and what to use to kill weeds. A lawnmower, cloth gloves, rubber gloves, dial sprayer, tank sprayer, fertilizer spreader, small pressure sprayer, and safety glasses are commonly used.
Water your lawn correctly
When you need to water your lawn, make sure to do it properly. Diseases spread rapidly and infect lawns when the grass blades are constantly wet. Avoid watering your grass late in the day as this will cause the grass blades to remain wet all night and encourage diseases. If you can, install a water controller with your irrigation system.
Know how to mow your lawn correctly

However, remember not to mow the grass too short as this could damage the grass. Generally, you should cut 1/3 of the grass.
