Yard Care: How to Care for a Small Yard

Yard Care: How to Care for a Small Yard

If you need help with yard care, then you’ve come to the right place!

Yard care is easier than you might think. There are many concerns to worry about during the summer months, such as weeds, fungus, and lawn pests. You might think that a small yard would be easier to take care of than a larger lawn. If you need help with yard care, then you’ve come to the right place! 

Different Tools 

Many homeowners rely on large and heavy power mowers. However, these are only useful for larger lawns that are in need of yard maintenance. A reel action push mower could be a better choice for you instead. So if your yard is 1,000 square feet or less, then that’s what you need to use. You can also hang up these mowers in your garage when you don’t need to use them – thanks to them being so lightweight. However, you’ll want to be sure that you can adjust the mowing height, which needs to be between 2.5 and 3 inches. 

The Secrets of Feeding and Seeding 

Spreaders help you seed and feed your lawn and yard, no matter how large or small they are. Seed, lawn food, and other products are essential for supporting your yards, especially if you are worried about weeds and other problems getting out of control

Landscaping Tips

Landscaping can take your lawn to the next level. Shrubs and other focal points can make your small yard look and feel bigger. Try using mirrors behind trellises on a wall or fence to also add to this optical illusion. Double the size, double the garden, wouldn’t you agree?   

Understand Your Soil Needs 

Be sure to understand your soil. Turf and sod have different characteristics and you need to know what they are. Testing the soil pH is an important phase of the process as is getting rid of moss, mold, and mildew. If your soil is too acidic or too basic, then your small yard might have trouble thriving. 

Fight Off the Weeds 

Depending on the age of your lawn, you’ll have to worry about weeds. These seedlings can infest your yard and take away nutrients, water, and light from the grass and other plants that you’ve been carefully cultivating in your small garden. Killing weeds such as broadleaf is immensely important for ensuring that your yard care routine succeeds.
