What your Lawn Needs from You

Did you know there was a science to lawn care. It’s not a complicated science, but still science nonetheless. Take a look at these four things researchers at Colorado State University (CSU) and experienced professionals had to say about lawn care.

1. Water – Check your soil moisture by sticking a screwdriver into the soil. Hard and resistant soil needs water, so if this is the case, allow water to soak at least at a good 3 inches into the soil, when it starts to run off or puddle, then stop watering.

2. Fertilizer – Wait until May to fertilize your lawns. You can apply it early, but only for the reason of “weed and feed”, which helps to control germination in early-season weeds.

3. Aeration – Be strategic about aerating your dry lawn. To get optimum benefits of aerating, your soil needs to be moist.

4. Mowing – Knowing how low to mow is very important. Standard Kentucky bluegrass lawn wants to be about 3-4″ tall, by nature. Set your mower height at 3″ and don’t cut off more than 1/3 of the total height of the grass.

Think Comfort and Durability with your Outdoor Furniture

Let’s be honest, sitting on a large boulder or log may give your outdoor space that certain back-to-nature quality for the first 10 seconds, but after that you will need real support for your back. Furnishing your outdoor rooms with the right pieces are essential to putting the finishing touches on your outdoor living rooms. Nowadays there are a vast amount of choices out there when it comes to outdoor furnishings. Those options include wrought iron, cast iron, wrought or cast aluminum, and traditional wood or classic wood.

But you must remember that you need the right combination of comfort and durability when selecting outdoor furniture. There are new synthetic weatherproof patio furniture and fabrics available now that offer great style and comfort options like something you would place inside the home.

If you live in the Denver or Boulder, Colorado area, Lifescape Associates can design the perfect outdoor living space for your home, just call us at 303-831-8310.
