When you’re considering planting a new lawn and taking care of it properly throughout the year, there are a few important points to keep in mind. First, you have to research the species of grass that will thrive in your climate, purchase your seeds and plant them at the right time of the year. Then, consider purchasing the proper grass fertilizer, as well as a lawn mower, a sprinkler system and tools such as a shovel a rake and a spreader to make planting and tending to your lawn an easier process.
The rule of thumb here is that you need to fertilize your lawn right after planting it and water the soil on a regular basis depending on the temperature and humidity conditions in your area. Typically, more irrigation will be required during late spring, summer and early fall.
When it comes to winter lawn care, it’s important to note two facts: that your lawn is going to enter a dormant period of preservation, and that the frozen soil and freezing temperatures are likely to present a pretty big challenge.
To counteract all challenges in this period, you have to start in the late autumn by aerating your lawn and using special winter fertilizer to provide it with strengthening nutrients before the freeze sets in. Also consider covering your lawn with mulch and allowing the snow to set in and provide a protective cover to keep it safe from freezing temperatures.
