These tips will help you become your own lawn specialist—because a healthy lawn doesn't happen by accident.

There are many factors that contribute to a green and lush lawn. Healthy turf grass starts with choosing the right seed type for your region: cool-season grasses in the north and warm-season grasses in the south. Once you’ve chosen the right grass, you’ll need to keep it hydrated. This is where many would-be landscapers go wrong.

When it comes to watering the lawn, there are some essential things every homeowner should know like, what time of day to water, how much to water, and how often to water the lawn. While we can’t ensure your grass is the greenest on the block, we can help answer these and other questions. Once you know the basics, a picture-perfect lawn is within your reach.
