Lawns didn’t always serve as social spaces. Long ago, they were used primarily for grazing livestock. And before you make a crack about your mother-in-law at last summer’s picnic, consider how the best lawn games can serve to make this year’s backyard gatherings more fun bearable.
As most homeowners and gardeners know, letting a weed problem get out of control is one of the best ways to end up with an ugly lawn. And that means that controlling weed growth is one of the most essential things to do if you want the loveliest lawn on the block. Today, I’m going to talk about a weed called Poa Annua, also called Annual Meadow Grass but in America it’s often referred to as Annual Bluegrass or simply Poa. I’ll share some photos that will help you identify Poa Annua in your lawn, and give you my tips to kill it in your lawn.
Most lawn mowers are rugged machines that can run for years. But don’t make the mistake of thinking just because a mower is running, that means it’s performing well. Often, that’s not the case. Maintenance is crucial to keeping your mower running optimally, and I recommend that most homeowners complete annual maintenance twice a year – in the spring to get your mower ready for the season, and in the late fall to winterize your mower and prepare it for storage. Today, I’ll explain how to clean an air filter on a lawn mower, and why you absolutely need to do it regularly.
Now that spring is on the horizon, it’s time to start planning projects for when your lawn and garden wake from their long winter slumber. For me, spring means mower maintenance, mulching my garden beds, applying a good pre-emergent to the lawn, and edging my lawn and garden beds. If you’re looking for ways to upgrade your curb appeal and cut your yardwork time this season, consider mow over lawn edging. It is a lower-maintenance alternative to traditional edging styles, and every time you mow you’ll thank yourself for installing it in your yard.
