Everyone wants to have a lawn that is the envy of the neighborhood, but it can seem overwhelming to attain that lawn. There are many tasks that require more time and careful attention, including weed prevention, fertilization, disease control… and that’s saying nothing of cultural practices like mowing, irrigation, aeration.

So what can you do in one afternoon to make your lawn look its best? We have some simple steps that can improve your lawn’s appearance in just one afternoon.

  • Create Clean Edges. Work around any landscape beds, sidewalks and driveway sections with an edger to create crisp lines and separation from non-grass areas.
  • Pick Up Debris. From the scooter that the neighbor kid abandoned in the front lawn to fallen sticks and branches, any out of place items in your yard can equal a messy look. And don’t forget to keep pet waste picked up as well!
  • Fresh Mulch. There’s a reason this is the number one recommendation from realtors when their clients are preparing to list their homes for sale. A fresh layer of mulch not only protects your plants’ roots, but also provides a clean, fresh look to frame your lawn.
