Your guide to a Perfect Lawn…..
1) Mow your lawn frequently – The frequency of mowing should depend on the grass type and the season. Generally it is recommended to mow high in the summer and low in the winter.

3) Fertilize your lawn – Fertilize your lawn at least once a year with a slow-release fertilizer.
4) Aerate your lawn – Aerating your lawn helps to break up compacted soil and allows nutrients and water to reach the root system more efficiently.
