Simple Steps for a Natural Lawn

Now that spring has pressed its green thumb down on us, the carrot of “the perfect lawn” has once again begun to dangle over our heads. Between TV advertisements, sales at the local box store, landscaping vans parked in our neighborhoods, and magazines boasting the perfect lawn, the idea of personal turf maintained to golf course standards has again begun to worm its way into our consciousness as the image of the ideal American lawn.

How our yards look is indeed important. But how important? Is it important enough to use chemicals that we’re not supposed to touch for up to 24 hours? Is it important enough to sacrifice hours of leisure time to try and cultivate the perfect lawn? Probably not, and that is why it is important to follow these simple steps to maintaining a more natural lawn.

Be sure to check out Farmers’ Almanac’s best days to mow for both slowing and enhancing growth.
