Your summer enjoyment may all depend on cleaning your lawn properly. Only the grass needs to be maintained. But you also have to watch out for bugs. So here are some tips to get started.
Sometimes your home and garden can get away from you. And things can pile up. This can happen more outside of the colder months because you’re not as active outdoors when the weather is bad. But before you can enjoy your outdoor space, you need to clean up anything dangerous or unsightly; old furniture, trash, and even cars are common. You can have your old cars towed by local services. And the rest just takes extra time and effort on your part.
Take care of the grass
An emerald green lawn is the epitome of summer fun at home. But it’s harder than you think. Of course, the weather affects grass. But there’s also a problem if you have trash and other stuff strewn about. Your weed may also look a bit wild and overgrown if you’ve neglected it for a while. So the first step is to get rid of everything. Next, dust off the lawn mower and cut it, being careful of the edges. Then feed it some produce and sow more seeds.
Be safe when cleaning your lawn
Your lawn can become very dangerous when overgrown and neglected, so watch out for some common dangers. These include blown trash, sharp objects such as broken glass, and even wildlife droppings. Some animal feces, such as dog feces, can be particularly dangerous for children. Also be aware of common wild plants that are also dangerous such as oleander, hemlock and foxglove. Even the beloved daffodils are poisonous when swallowed.
Give him insect repellent
Insects are a vital part of a wild ecosystem in your garden. And some play an essential role. But no one wants bugs everywhere. If you’re going to be spending a lot of time on your lawn, it may help to quickly spray your yard with a non-toxic pesticide like diatomaceous earth. You can also make homemade insect repellent from natural ingredients. A good organic spray is made with lemon eucalyptus, lavender oil and witch hazel. It will also help with spiders in your home.
Create a suitable seating area
A magnificent lawn invites. But you can’t spend all your time sitting on the grass, and you might want to entertain guests. It is therefore useful to create a safe and spacious seating area to enjoy your garden. Patios and decks are popular these days, and both can add up to 10% value to your home. This is great if you plan to sell further and can make some extra money. But the value of the time spent with the friends and family they can offer is pretty much priceless.
Clearing your lawn is essential to enjoy it in summer. Start by getting rid of everything you don’t need. Be careful to make it safer while doing it and make room to sit outside.
