Are you thinking about selling your Albuquerque home in 2020? If your answer is yes, then you should employ these smart strategies to make your Albuquerque lawn look stunning and enhance your curb appeal in the process. Here are the tips we think you should follow:

Mower blades with a sharp edge cut grass blades clean, leaving a healthy small opening on the cut end, which means the grass stress is low each time it gets cut. Plus, a clean cut means the grass is less susceptible to nasty diseases or harmful insects. Cut your grass in different directions each week. This will allow your grass to grow in different directions and allow it to receive sunshine from different directions each week.


Provide your Albuquerque lawn the fuel it needs.

Strong health lawn grass keeps out weeds, it is a fact. To make it a reality be sure to apply fertilizer on the recommended intervals and the amounts provided by the lawn fertilizer company you use. Be sure to follow the recommended fertilizer for your lawn age. Newer grass lawns require a different fertilizer than a lawn that’s several years old. Check with the Albuquerque lawn care professionals and R & S Landscaping for their recommendations for your Albuquerque lawn.  


Win the war on weeds, not words. Take action today!

If you have an Albuquerque lawn that is full of weeds, be aware that the weeds can crush out your healthy lawn grass. Weeds are fact of life, so to win the war on weeds you need employ effective weed control. Go online and see out the top-rated weed control product with built in fertilizers and crabgrass prevention controls. The best crabgrass products out today will keep crabgrass from germinating and stop any crabgrass that has already germinated from growing weeks into the future.


Spend the money on quality lawn sprinklers and soaker hoses

Installing a lawn sprinkler irrigation system is expensive. If you do not have the budget for an expensive irrigation system, switch things up and buy a set of quality above ground lawn hose sprinklers or soaker hoses to water your lawn. Be sure to set a timer on your watch to remind you to turn off the water. Albuquerque lawns require 1 inch of water weekly. Be sure to water when in the late evening to reduce evaporation and make the most of the water you are adding to your Albuquerque grass lawn. Albuquerque weather is dry, hot, and prone to huge amounts of water evaporation. Water when it is cooler is a wise strategy.


Edge your lawn and do it with a sharpened lawn edger

One of the most effective ways to make your lawn look great that does not cost much is to edge around the entire lawn. Be sure to edge around sidewalks, tree wells and flower gardens. A clean look will go a long way to make your Albuquerque home have the curb appeal you want when you are trying to sell your house.
