Really great stuff when think about it. Everyone wants bright, green grass in their yard! Yup, nothing prettier than a green lawn. A lawn you can be proud of and enjoy with the grandkids. You know . . . roll around, laugh and play on it. The grandkids can play ball on it or chase each other on it just for fun. What a great life we have with grass. That's what summer is all about . . . grass!
Oh yeah, you do need to take care of it. First you plant it, then you fertilize it and of course you want no weeds so you must treat it and keep it watered. If your serious about having a real green lawn you hire a professional. They treat it with a pre-emergence early in spring, then come back and fertilize it so it grows quickly. You mow the lawn once a week in the beginning but as it begins to grow quickly you find that twice a week is necessary. You want it to looking better than your neighbors lawn so you make sure it is treated with weed and feed periodically during the summer. At the end of the year it is recommended that the lawn be aerated so it will grow better and faster next year.
So you figure you mow the lawn about 50+ times during the season. You need to catch the grass so it doesn't just lay there turning brown ruining its appearance. Sure it's a harder job to catch the grass but who wants to play on a brown lawn??? Well the grass looks great and we're ready to play.
Hey honey, are the grandkids coming this week? . . . . . NO! . . . Why not? . . . They're going over to their other grandparents house . . they have a pool!
OK now down to business!
