We’ve all been there: you’re driving and notice a yard that’s lush, green and gorgeous. All you can think is, “How did they do that?”

It can be yours in five easy steps. And it won’t mean giving up all your free time. Once you’ve got your lawn established, it’s just a matter of taking care of it. Get started by following these five steps:


How do you use your lawn? Is it a place for storing firewood and lawn care tools, or do you use it for leisure, like sports and entertaining? Think of all these things and then sketch out a plan detailing how you want your yard to look.


Going green isn’t just about saving the environment: it’s about saving you from higher utility bills. One of the simplest ways is to have your sprinkler systems set on a timer. You can also conserve water by arranging flower beds and shrubs in a way that they take advantage of water runoff and using mulch and vegetation as buffer strips around ponds and streams to help retain moisture.


Establish your soil’s condition by having a test done. The results will help you to select fertilizer, compost and so forth. Contact us today to schedule a soil test.


What kind of soil do you have? Is it sandy, clay or some other type? You’ll need to determine the type of soil you have and check to see whether it’s compacted. If it’s tightly compacted, a tiller or hoe might be needed to break it up. The job will be done easier after a heavy rainstorm or watering.


Once you’ve went through the previous steps, you’re ready to plant your lawn. Give us a call at (612) 599-8675 and we can help you determine what types of grass will grow the best.
