Improving Your Lawn

A lawn is a common sight in the Miami Beach real estate market, at least for single family homes anyway. With the sunny weather and frequent rainfall, sellers and everyday homeowners both need to make sure that the lawn looks as fresh and well maintained as possible. Here are a few tips towards achieving the perfect lawn.

Mow regularly. Most people tend to put off lawn mowing until the length has substantially grown. Mowing on a more frequent basis simultaneously manages to keep weeds from becoming a problem and forces blades to grow thicker.

Stay away from wet lawns. A wet lawn that’s mowed will cause the soil to compact, thus preventing the roots from breathing which ultimately ends up killing the grass. Dead grass equals unattractive empty spots.

Keep the clippings. Generally people have a tendency of attaching a bag to the lawnmower to pick up the clippings. Assuming you are mowing on a regular basis, these shorter clippings will actually function as fertilizer and will be absorbed into the soil.
