Basic Lawn Care

There are three basic lawn care activities that will help you get that green lawn you’ve always wanted. Watering, mowing, and fertilizing are the foundation of a healthy, green lawn. The more quality time you spend on these areas will minimize time needed dealing with problems and more intensive lawn maintenance.

Everyone wants a weed-free lawn, and by following the basic maintenance outlined in this section, you will be well on your way to rid your lawn of weeds. The key to having a weed-free lawn is by growing a thick carpet of grass. This will provide little or no room for weeds to grow.

If you have a well-established lawn, basic maintenance is just about all you will need to do to keep it well-maintained. If your lawn needs some work visit our section on maintenance. And if you have specific problems, please visit our lawn problems section.
