Tips & Tricks for a Green Lawn #5.


Tips & Tricks for a Green LawnI’ve been doing a series of posts: Tips and Tricks for a Green Lawn. If you missed any of the tips you can read Post 1, Post 2, Post 3, and Post 4. Today I’ll be wrapping up this series on the lawn.

I enjoyed this series, it gave me an opportunity to share another one of my passions, gardening. Since I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to the lawn and my flowers, much less growing vegetables the last couple of years, this gave me the much-needed opportunity to get back out there.

Wesley has always been the lawn expert, but I have learned a lot of valuable information and shared it in this series. If you don’t take anything else away from this series, just remember these two tips:

  1. Use a slow-release fertilizer 6 to 10 weeks apart
  2. Water but don’t overwater, one inch per week is ideal

This was my project from the beginning. However, it didn’t take the family along to join in and help.

  1. First, we decided to plant a couple of shrubs to replace some looking not so healthy. 
  2. We planted tomato plants
  3. As well, we planted flowers around the mailbox and flowers near the front door
  4. We replaced perennials that had seen better days.
  5. I re-potted a Nandina in the urn at the front door.

We actually had a fun family workday! And the boys have taken ownership of the tomato plants by watering and checking on them without being told.
