Basics of Lawn Maintenance

The most important activity to perform regularly in your lawn care is to get out and enjoy it. Walking and playing on a lawn gives you an opportunity to inspect and keep track of problems. Staying on top of lawn maintenance is far easier than fixing problems once they have taken root. Pay constant attention to your grass, check frequently, and follow these standard basics of lawn care.
Lawn Tools

Proper tools are critical in maintaining an attractive lawn. The top five lawn tools are:

* Lawn Mower – You simply cannot have a lawn and not have a mower. The larger your lawn, the larger the mower you will need. A mower is probably one of the most expensive garden tools you will ever own, so buy the best you can afford and take good care of it. A lawn mower is a true investment; when shopping for a new one – do your homework. The most important maintenance for your lawn mower is keeping the blade sharp. You will also need to winterize the engine when you stop mowing in the fall.
* Trimmer or Edger – Whether you have the standard blade edger or the universal string trimmer, you will need this power tool to keep your grass in line.
* Spreader – A small cart or hand-held tool that distributes fertilizer and seeds.
* Thatcher – Depending on the size of your lawn and thatch problem, a simple thatch rake or heavy power thatchers are available.
* Leaf Rake – A perfect tool to keep excess leaves and twigs off your lawn, as well as cleaning up grass clippings.
