1. Sufficient, consistent watering.
Many home owners conduct their landscaping services on their own but do not truly know the correct way to water their lawns, especially in the Dallas heat. The best and most efficient way to make sure your grass is properly fed is to water it with around an inch of water once a week. Many people choose to water their grass in short increments multiple times a week but allowing the grass to soak in an inch of water gives the roots the opportunity to grow further into the ground. By doing so, the roots will be able to retain moisture during the dry days. Install proper irrigation systems to help ensure the water is flowing through your grass properly.
2. Go green and go natural.

Not only are they good for your grass, but they’re safe for the kids and the animals, as well as for the environment!
3. Save those clippings!
While some may think the left over grass clippings are an eye-sore for your lawn, they won’t be once you see the results! The excess clippings that you would normally spend time and energy throwing into the back woods can easily help provide nutrients for your lawn. The leftovers will quickly fall back into the soil, revitalizing it with the nutrients that it wouldn’t have received otherwise and in turn will help give your grass that Christmas green color!
The length you trim your grass to is very important to its health. If you cut it too short you can kill all of the nutrients it has obtained and it will end up dry. Be sure to put your mower on the proper length setting and cut evenly in straight lines so that you do not over-cut one area and under-cut another.
Another quick tip is creating a compost from the scraps from the garden and kitchen. The nutrients from the leftover products such as fruit peals or vegetable skins mixed can help provide the soil with what it needs in order to help make your put some life into your grass!
