Whether you like to keep your lawn pristine because you love the look and feel of it, or you just maintain it because your landlord tells you to, this guide has suggestions to keep your lawn happy and healthy all year round.
The full graphic covers tips on mowing your lawn like a pro, remembering to aerate your lawn so the soil can breathe and to let air and water get down there (for stronger roots), avoid overwatering, and of course, prep your yard for planting come spring.
The calendar at the top of the graphic is helpful, but it's important to remember that it doesn't take into account regional or seasonal weather, so some of the tips likely won't apply to you depending on where you live. If you live in drought-prone areas, a lot of that mid-summer work requires water you won't want to spend on your lawn, and if you live in a cold weather climate, that late-fall dressing or turfing may not make sense.
Either way, take a look below and see what makes sense for you, your lawn, and the level of effort you want to put into maintaining it. For some, you might want to do just about everything here to keep your yard fluffy and green for the kids or your pets. For others, you might use this as a guideline to scrap your lawn altogether and plant something else.
