Basic Landscaping Tips For A Successful Turf

by on October 24, 2012

If you’re frustrated with the way your Long Island lawn looks, maybe it’s time to make some changes. It is very possible that you’re not aware that some of the things you’re doing (or perhaps not doing) is having a very big effect on your Long Island lawn. Here are some landscaping tips that may help you take better care of your turf and ensure a more successful and healthy Long Island landscape.

Watering: If you drive through any normal American neighborhood in the evening, chances are you’ll see quite a few residents watering their Long Island lawn. This is a common mistake. Since the moisture won’t evaporate throughout the night, it will create the perfect opportunity for mold or other fungi to grow. Instead, water your Long Island landscape in the morning so the moisture has a chance to evaporate.

Weed Control: If weeds are popping up in your Long Island lawn, you definitely want to get a handle on this issue sooner rather than later. Weeds are notorious for their ability to spread quickly. Corn gluten, an organic material, has several benefits that include killing weed seedlings and introducing nitrogen into the soil naturally.

Lawn Clippings: Many people are tempted to bag their clippings or have them blown away, but as long as the amount of clippings isn’t thick (as in you haven’t mowed for a couple months), you can leave them on your Long Island lawn where they will decompose and become natural fertilizer. If you’re worried about clippings making your Long Island landscape look messy, consider investing in a mulching mower.

Hopefully these simple landscaping tips can help put you on the path to a healthier, more beautiful Long Island lawn!
