Some tips for keeping a lawn looking its best include removing weeds and testing the pH of the soil before planting new grass. Rolling out a layer of sod on the lawn will also ensure lush, healthy grass.
It is also best not to mow the lawn too short, as this causes stress to the grass. The taller the grass is, the better the roots develop. Soaking an established lawn with water about once a week causes the roots to go deeper into the soil and makes for nourished and healthy grass. For a lawn that is newly seeded, it is best to water the grass every day for five to 10 minutes. Once the seeds have sprouted, the lawn should be watered for 15 to 20 minutes.
