Maintain Your Lawn to Sell Your Home

Lawn

There is really something to be said for a well-kept and well-loved lawn. It is easy to tell the difference between a lawn that is well cared for and one that has simply been tended to to sell the home. The difference comes in the quality of the grass itself, something that can only come from special care and handling. A really nice lawn can be a real focal point for a yard in a good way or just as easily a bad way. A lawn that is ill-tended can be full of weeds and moss, discolored and untidy. This never makes for a good impression on buyers as they will be looking for reasons to purchase the home, not reasons to pass it by.

One of the worst things you can do to a lawn it to let it get too dry — when it gets too dry, that green lustre is lost. One must keep the lawn watered throughout the dry season, and this is especially true if you are selling a home, as yellow lawns really don’t make great first impressions.

There are a few things that need to be done on a regular basis to ensure the health of your lawn. For starters, it’s a good idea to aerate your lawn at the beginning of the summer season. This process gets precious nutrients down under the lawn and allows moisture into a lawn that is starved for air. Lawns take a beating in the winter, especially in areas where there is snow and a lot of rain. Both of these weather conditions can really have a detrimental effect on a lawn’s health.

A nice lawn can be a huge selling point for a home. Not only is it a beautiful aspect of a home, but it sets up the area where your family spends time in the summer having family gatherings, picnics, and where your kids play. The yard is really a social area and the lawn is its floor. You must keep it in as good a shape as you would with an interior floor. Taking the time to keep things like lawns in shape speaks highly of you as a home owner and that is something that buyers will always take note of.

  1. We used to live in Florida, I got the best results on our St Augustine grass there by using HALF the recommended amount of Scott’s Bonus S, and applied it TWICE as often. (I believe it washes out of sandy soil.)
