Beyond Mowing: Seasonal Lawn Care for Morrisville Rental Homes

Morrisville Rental Property with a Well-Maintained Front YardA lovely lawn, when joined with a simply maintained landscape design, can be a good draw when renters are selecting a rental home. First good perceptions or impressions are key for Morrisville rental homes, and a charming yard makes a big difference towards making your rental always inhabited. Though the real task in the process of making a charming lawn can occasionally be mind-boggling for a tenant, they like how it makes their rental home look, but they may not know how to properly care for a lawn or be willing to put in the amount of time and energy a healthy lawn requires.

The truth is that there are a number of significant tasks that come with having a healthy lawn, some of which are seasonally specific. During the winter, lawns in most areas are dormant, a necessary defense against the cold. Spring’s warmer temperatures will bring a burst of fresh green grass and, at the same time, several important lawn maintenance tasks.

A whole-yard clean-up is an important first step in any lawn care. Clearing leaves and debris is necessary because it enables fertilizer and water to be absorbed and consumed into the soil below. Warm-season grasses should be dethatched and aerated in the springtime, too. Once cleared, dethatched, and aerated, a combination fertilizer and pre-emergent herbicide should be applied to the lawn.

If accomplished in early spring, this can help stop undesirable weeds and crabgrass from taking root, and in addition, will help current grass grow in any exposed spots. A second application is normally suggested about six to eight weeks later, and also a dose of a broadleaf weed killer. Use of all of these chemicals can be hazardous if not applied or handled correctly. Because of this, these steps are usually a property owner’s responsibility and not a tenant’s.

Ultimately, to stimulate a healthy lawn all year round, it’s vital to mow frequently and early in the spring. Allowing the grass to rise too high and then mowing it too short can harm the roots, even totally killing the grass. When the first leaf emerges, experts advise mowing every five days approximately for the first six weeks of spring, together with suitable aeration at ideal times. This, combined with correctly maintaining the lawnmower so that it only eliminates the top third of the grass, will encourage the growth of a thick and full lawn all summer long.

Correct lawn care takes a long time and energy to get straight. Even though your tenant has agreed to look after your Morrisville rental home’s lawn, there is no assurance that they will really do so or that they will be aware of how to watch over it appropriately.

To keep your rental home’s lawn well and healthy, it’s necessary to perform routine property evaluations that check its status and development from season to season.
