Planning on having a cookout or a party for Memorial Day weekend? Naturally, all the hard work you have put into your lawn (and with our help, of course!) has given you a bright, vibrant beautiful lawn that you will want to show off to your friends.
On a busy weekend get-together, you can expect a lot of foot traffic. Guests may be walking across the lawn to grab food, drinks, or run around playing with the kids. Games of catch, Frisbee, or football, may certainly be in the works as well. Being outside is what summer is all about, so you certainly do not want to limit you or your guests from enjoying their time.
What can I do to prepare your lawn!
Memorial Day heralds the beginning of the summer season. The kids will soon be home for the summer, playing games of chase and running after the neighborhood ice cream truck man. Of course you will have one of the most gorgeous lawns out of anyone on the block, and you will want to show that off during your party.
Before you fire up the grill, though, we at at Perm-O-Green recommend that you take a few steps to strengthen your lawn before your guests come over.
- Add mulch to your lawn
- Water only enough to reach the roots of the grass
- Address bare patches by seeding those areas
- Nourish the soil
- Tend to any weeds and add fertilizer
Furthermore, you can spruce up the overall look of your entire yard by adding slight decorations. If you have a porch, mend any broken railings or creaky floors so that it will be as inviting as possible. In many homes, the porch tends to be a popular gathering spot. Entertaining your guests on the porch can also help reduce the foot traffic on your lawn.
