Lawn Care Tips for New Homeowners

Evaluate Your Lawn

Before you can make a plan for lawn care, you’ll need to evaluate its current condition. If you’ve moved to the area from out of state you may be dealing with a different type of turf than you’re used to. Similarly, if the previous owners left the lawn in poor condition, you may be in need of renovations and repairs that are unfamiliar to you. This is where working with a professional lawn care company is helpful, our team can complete a soil test and evaluate your specific needs to create a program tailored to your lawn.

Invest in Quality Weed Control

If you bought a home with a yard full of weeds, it’s best to get them under control as soon as possible. Many homeowners think they need to wait until spring to get started with a lawn care program, but at Nature’s Select™ we recommend year-round treatments for the best results. Our select lawn care program uses a trademark mix of essential grass plant nutrients, high-quality weed controls, and organic and biological products to improve and maintain your soil’s health. This program not only produces beautiful, green lawns, it also helps your yard fight back against weeds.

Take It Slow

Finally, while it’s important to have fun and personalize your new home, we recommend taking it slow when it comes to landscaping and outdoor projects. Typically, landscaping and gardening are the “fun part” for new homeowners. However, if you’re new to this, we suggest not taking on too much at first. Landscaping is a long-term investment and requires a lot of time and money.
