How to Give your Neighbours Lawn Envy

March 30th 2017

Have you ever felt green with lawn envy? You see your neighbours’ yard with lush green grass for miles with not a blade out of place. What’s their secret?

Here are top 3 ways on how to give your neighbours lawn envy:

  • The best kept secret to lawn maintenance and lawn care is consistency. Grass tends to need tending to every week or two weeks. Another way to measure it is every 3 inches of growth. Keep an eye on how fast your grass grows and book Eden when it needs a cut. For general lawn maintenance like garden beds and shrub trimming, it tends to be every 3 to 4 weeks.

  • Another best kept secret? Perfect lawn stripes which tends to happen when you bend the blade of grass a certain way so that the light reflects it in a certain way. How do they do it? Lots of practice – leave it to the pros.

  • Another trick that is icing on the cake when it comes to a perfect lawn is “edging” – this is when you add borders to the sides of your landscaping and the sides of the lawn that touch the hardscape. This can be done in a variety of different ways from using actual plastic border or digging up the grass to create an edge. This allows for a perfect straight line all around the yard.
