Crafting the Perfect LawnJune 24, 2013
Curbside appeal starts with a well-kept lawn. When performing lawn maintenance, you’ll need to decide between bagging your lawn trimming or mulching them. If your home is on the market, bagging your lawn trimmings is a wiser option, because the yard will look cleaner and tidier. If your area is populated by pine trees, you may also opt to bag your yard detritus, as pine needles are high in acidity and can discolor otherwise healthy grass. If you’ve just bought a home, or are well-established in your home, mulching will provide you with better long-term results for a healthy lawn.
When you use a mulching blade to disperse the particles of leaves and grass over the soil, nutrients are added back into the ground that over time contribute to a healthier, greener expanse of grass and soil. Once you’ve decided how to dispose of your yard trimmings, think about adding in a perimeter of shrubs, annuals, perennials, or ornamenting the lawn with a tree that your family can enjoy watching as it puts down roots. Your lawn will be one of the first things a buyer sees when your home is on the market, so make sure it makes an impression!
