Fall is the perfect season to give your lawn a little TLC, so here are a few ways we like to keep grass looking lush at Trim Landscaping.
Will tree trimming help your grass to grow better?
If you are a person wanting a perfect lawn but are finding that you are having limited results, there are several possible solutions to this problem. Many believe that providing more seed or sod to their yard will do the trick, but far too often this leads to overseeding. Regardless of whether you are talking about winter grass or some other form, overseeding is not the option.
What you may want to consider is tree trimming. This is the proper way to help you to allow more sun to get to your lawn which can make a dramatic difference.
Getting more sunlight on your grass
There are a lot of skeptics about this particular philosophy. After all, you have a lot of climate change enthusiasts believing that the earth is far too hot already, so adding additional sunlight to your grass is going to cause more harm than good. This is clearly not the case.
Unless you live in an area where there is an excessive amount of heat most of the day, like in a desert, grass thrives off the sun. It is part of the cycle that helps to keep it green and lush. Removing excess tree limbs that may be denying your grass from having a significant amount of sun is an important factor in helping it to grow.
Of course, it is important that you continuously water your grass as well. The more sunlight that you are providing for your grass, the more water it is going to need to keep from becoming dry. So, you may have to up your water intake for your grass to keep it looking at its best.
It benefits the trees as well
One thing to consider is that trimming your trees actually helps the trees themselves. Consider this for a minute. If you are a person who has long hair, you have probably had problems with split ends. To help your hair look better, you trended at the end, allowing it to grow more fully and look more beautiful.
The same is true of your trees. Trimming excess branches and reducing the amount of foliage of the tree helps to add more sunlight to the tree overall. Instead of only the top and outer branches and leaves of the tree receiving sunlight, all of the tree is getting it when you reduce down the number of branches.
As you can see, tree trimming is a good idea, and one you should consider if you want to help your grass to grow more fully.
