A Perfect Lawn – Secrets to Know

Published by

What exactly is the secret to a perfect lawn? That elusive patch of green that every homeowner dreams of. Is it some sort of mystical formula that only the lucky few know about? Let’s reveal the truth about what it takes to have the perfect lawn.


Aim to water your lawn once a week and give it a good soak when you do.

 Ah, the perfect lawn. Firstly, let’s talk about the most essential aspect of lawn maintenance – watering. Although we suggest weekly watering, people’s busy lives can make it hard to achieve if you don’t have an irrigation system. Nearby trees may take up the water you’d hoped would grow your grass. For these reasons, we emphasize soil enhancement and proper mowing.

  • Some people will tell you that you need to water your lawn every day, but that’s not true. Unless you’re trying to grow rice, there’s no need to drown your lawn on a daily basis. 
  • When you water, don’t forget to water early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid evaporation.


Amended soil will help your grass retain moisture.

Amending soil improves the soil’s structure and composition, allowing it to hold onto water more effectively.

  • Compost, peat moss, and vermiculite can increase the soil’s ability to retain water by creating a more porous soil structure that can absorb and hold onto moisture. This is especially important in areas where the soil is sandy or has poor water-holding capacity.
  • In addition to improving water retention, amended soil can also improve nutrient availability and overall soil health, leading to healthier and more vigorous grass growth. 
  • By providing the right balance of nutrients and moisture, amended soil can help your grass develop a deeper and more extensive root system, which in turn can make it more resilient to drought and other environmental stresses.


Mowing is an art form, and it requires finesse and precision.

Let’s talk about mowing. You may be thinking, “I’ll just mow my lawn whenever I feel like it; it’s not that big of a deal.” But you couldn’t be more wrong. 

  • First things first, invest in a good lawnmower, none of that rusty, old thing that your grandpa passed down to you. Get yourself a shiny new model with all the bells and whistles. 
  • And when it comes to mowing, remember – less is more. Don’t try to mow your lawn too short, or you’ll end up damaging the grass. 
  • Aim to cut no more than a third of the blade at a time and alternate the direction you mow each time to prevent the grass from developing a “grain.”


The secret sauce of lawn maintenance is fertilizing, but be warned, it can be a double-edged sword.

Too little, and your lawn won’t be getting the nutrients it needs. Too much, and you’ll end up with a lawn that looks like it’s on steroids. 

  • So, what’s the magic number? Well, it depends on your soil type and the type of grass you have. 
  • As a general rule of thumb, aim to fertilize your lawn every six to eight weeks during the growing season.


Weeds; they are the bane of every homeowner’s existence. 

But don’t worry; there are ways to combat them. First things first – invest in environmentally safe weed control. 

  • When it comes to applying it, make sure you do it on a calm day to prevent any chemicals from drifting onto your prized plants. 
  • And if you’re really serious about getting rid of weeds, digging them up by hand is the best way. It may be a tedious task, but it’s the most effective way to get rid of those pesky plants.
