Water Your Lawn Well
Instead of just watering your lawn frequently, try watering your lawn deeply though less frequently. A deeper watering of your lawn will help natural minerals or fertilizer nutrients seep into the soil and be absorbed by the grass and roots for a healthier, greener look. Make sure your water your lawn at the proper times of day and in consideration of the local climate and time of the year. Read more tips on how to water your lawn well.
Use Organic Lawn Fertilizers
At Hambleton Lawn & Lawn care, we use Holganix, which is a natural plant probiotic that utilizes the power of soil microorganisms. Using natural fertilizers vs synthetic fertilizers is not only better for the environment but better for your lawn’s health. There is evidence to suggest that by using natural fertilizers, your lawn will become greener as a result! A greener lawn is a healthier lawn.
Composting is not only for gardens. Whether you compost from food product leftovers or from shorn grass clippings (which also helps clean your yard after mowing), composting has many benefits including providing increased nutrients and helping balance the pH levels in your soil.

Cut Your Grass to the Right Height
Making sure your clippers are sharpened and cutting your grass at the right height can help regulate your lawn’s health to improve the green appearance of your grass. Different types of grass need to be cut at different heights for proper maintenance and optimum health.
Aerate Your Lawn
Aerating your lawn, especially one used often by children and pets, is important for your soil health, which is then important for your grasses health. Soil that is too compact won’t allow for the proper absorption of moisture, other nutrients, and doesn’t allow for worms and other organisms needed in healthy soil. There are several ways to aerate your lawn.
