Healthy landscaping can increase your home’s curb appeal and create a beautiful place where your family can spend time together. Doing your research and working with dependable professionals can help ensure your lawn stays appealing all year round. 

Several things and poor practices can put the health of your yard at risk. Read on to find out what they are. 

Excessive Watering

During the warmer months, you might be tempted to turn on your sprinklers a couple of times a day. Grass does need water to grow, but too much of it can result in unhealthy root growth. Overwatered grass is more likely to have roots near the surface. Ideally, grass should receive large amounts of water once or twice a week to encourage deeper roots and healthier growth. 

Standing Water

Another thing that leads to poor lawn health is standing water. Often, water will pool around your landscaping if your gutters are inefficient or clogged. Investing in a high-quality gutter protection system can ensure water goes at a safe distance from your property. It can protect your landscaping from erosion and your home from water damage by preventing clogging and contributing to good water flow. 

Cutting the Grass Too Short

It’s a common misconception that the shorter your grass is, the better. Cutting your grass too short will strain the grass blades, resulting in further damage and a shorter turf lifespan. Experts suggest keeping the grass at a minimum of four inches, so there is enough time gap between mowing.
