How to Get the Best Return On Your Lawn

Every homeowner wants to have a great-looking lawn. After all, there’s nothing better than staring out your front window and seeing lush, green, well-manicured grass. One way to get your lawn looking its best is to hire an organic lawn service. The professionals can plant grass seed, mow your lawn, rid your lawn of weeds, and make sure the lawn is watered properly.

Spending just 5% of your home’s value on landscaping can give you as much as a 150% return on investment. So, to get the best return on your lawn, here are some steps you can take.

Feeding the Lawn

You may think lush lawns are grown from just a single grass-feeding, but it actually needs to be done up to four times annually. Depending on where you live, you may have a different schedule to follow or different products to use, but a well-fertilized lawn is a key step in the process.


As a homeowner, you probably mow your lawn regularly, but figuring out how and when to mow can make all the difference in how your lawn looks. If you’re mowing in colder weather, you’ll want to raise the mower blade higher. During the summer months, you’ll want to set it lower. You also want to mow in different patterns to avoid ruts and mow frequently enough that your grass doesn’t grow too high.


One key service that an organic lawn service can provide is a proper watering schedule for your lawn. Professionals know that the key is to water deeply and less frequently. Giving grass water and then a good soak encourages roots to grow and ultimately strengthens your lawn. Depending on the time of year, you may need to water once a week, like in colder months, or up to three times a week, such as during the summer.

Getting your lawn to look its best can be an inexact science. An organic lawn service company can take care of all the steps for you and ensure that you have a great lawn come summertime. For those located in Texas, reach out to Soils Alive. We will help take care of your lawn needs!
