Beyond Mowing: Seasonal Lawn Care for Dunnellon Rental Homes

Dunnellon Rental Property with a Well-Maintained Front YardA splendid lawn, when combined with a quite easily maintained landscape design, can be a remarkable pull-in when renters are choosing a rental home. First views and impressions are necessary for Dunnellon rental homes, and an interesting yard means a lot toward setting up and keeping your rental tenanted. On the other hand, the specific effort connected to establishing a great-looking fresh lawn can oftentimes be shocking for a tenant. They like how it makes their rental home look, but they may not know how to properly care for a lawn or be willing to put in the amount of time and energy a healthy lawn requires.

The actual truth is that there are a number of key responsibilities that come with preserving a healthy lawn, most of which are seasonally specific. During the winter, lawns in most areas are dormant, a necessary defense against the cold. Spring’s warmer temperatures will bring a burst of fresh green grass and, at the same time, several important lawn maintenance tasks.

A whole-yard clean-up is an important first step in any lawn care. Clearing leaves and debris is principal because it enables fertilizer and water to be consumed and completely absorbed into the soil below. Warm-season grasses should be dethatched and aerated in the springtime, additionally. Once cleared, dethatched, and aerated, a combination fertilizer and pre-emergent herbicide should be applied to the lawn.

If done in early spring, this can help deter weeds and crabgrass from flourishing, and urge new grass growth in any bare areas. A second application is customarily advised about six to eight weeks later, along with a dose of a broadleaf weed killer. Use of all of these chemicals can be hazardous if not applied or handled correctly. Because of this, these steps are usually a property owner’s responsibility and not a tenant’s.

When all is said and done, to maintain a healthy lawn over the year, it’s necessary to mow repeatedly and early in the spring. Permitting the grass to thrive too high and then mowing it too short can weaken the roots, even kill the grass entirely. When the first shoots turn up, experts prescribe mowing every five days just about for the first six weeks of spring, in keeping with precise aeration at appropriate times. This, melded with keeping the lawnmower adjusted where you are trimming only the top third of the grass blade every time will promote a thick, full lawn well into the summer.

Applicable lawn care takes ample time and energy to accomplish. Even though your tenant has pledged to manage your Dunnellon rental home’s lawn, there is no real assurance that they will completely do so or that they will have the right expertise on how to attend to it correctly.
