If you plan to sell your home in Albuquerque, you need to make sure your lawn is in top shape for maximum curb appeal.
Here’s a few tips to help your lawn look it’s best.
Don’t Use Weed Killers on Stormy Days
If the forecast in Albuquerque calls for rain or wind, don’t use weed killer on that day. Still, sunny days are much better to apply weed killers. When it’s windy, the weed killer can blow into the wrong area and damage other plants. Rain can wash weed killers into storm sewers that feed water supplies.
Don’t Cut Grass Too Short
You might think that shorter grass is better because you don’t have to mow as much. But your lawn will die faster that way. When grass is too short, it starves the roots, killing it. Keep your mower blades at 3 inches to save your lawn.
Don’t Bag Lawn Cuttings
If you’re spending hours raking up lawn cuttings after mowing, you can stop without an iota of guilt. Grass cuttings are natural compost; as they break down, they enrich the soil, making your grass greener. Less time with the rake, more time on the patio — it’s a win-win.
