Even though your neighbor does it, it may be hard for you to find the time and energy to maintain a perfectly manicured lawn.
In this Angie's List report, there's simple tips to a healthy summer lawn.
Fertilizer is important for healthy, lush growth, but if you apply it incorrectly, you can quickly turn your lawn from green to brown.
"We use dry slow-release products all year long because we want to flow feed the turf. The granules fall to the base and goes directly to the root system whereas when you spray liquid fertilizer, you're going to coat the leaf blades of the grass, then if you mow you're going to mow that off," said Fuss.
"When hiring a professional to help you with your lawn, remember it's a process. It's not something that happens overnight. A red flag is a provider that tells you they can fix it overnight," said Hicks.
Experts tell Angie's List you want to keep a sharp mover blade for a nice, clean cut. That means you need to sharpen the blade three times a year - in the spring, summer and fall.
