Busted! Don’t Believe These Lawn Care Myths!

When it comes to caring for your lawn and its maintenance, often, people don’t realize that there is more involved than what you see on the surface. In the past, a couple of set ideas and practices related to landscaping were considered as best practices, and everyone followed them. However, these notions which were once deemed to be true have now been proven false.

There are all kinds of information about landscaping floating around and it has become difficult to separate fact from old wives’ tales. Occasionally though, everyone needs a little guidance. We at Klink and Son, have debunked two myths that will you save money and keep your lawn healthy and greener.

Myth 1: Spots or bare patches require a new lawn.

Often, bare spots can be caused by lack of water or lack of nutrients, and the immediate response shouldn’t be to get a new lawn. Just simple watering, a little top soil and a few seeds, can work wonders and bring back the grass to a pristine condition.

Myth 2: Grubs in the lawn requires a new lawn.

Not true! Grubs can be removed in a natural and efficient manner simply by flooding your lawn. The excess water will force the grubs to come to the surface for air, and the birds will come down to eat them. It’s the most efficient and less expensive option available.
