Lawn Care

Your lawn can be a source of pride, a place for your family to play, an oasis for relaxing -- and you can make your lawn lush and beautiful with a few simple actions and regular yard care. Of course, mowing is one of the most important things we do to our lawns; if you mow yourself, you can make it easier by using our guide to choosing the best mower for your landscape. If you don't have time to care for your lawn -- or if you're going to be away -- you'll love this advice for choosing a reliable lawn service. In addition, how you care for your lawn depends on where you live; use our regional lawn care tips (and drought-survival tips) for keeping your grass healthy. In autumn, your lawn is transitioning from its active growing season to a dormant period; autumn is a good time to spruce up your lawn with our easy guide. At any time of the year, your lawn might need a little extra care; you can renovate your lawn step-by-step, or follow our 12-week plan. If going green means more than just the color of the lawn, you'll appreciate these environmentally friendly tips that keep your lawn healthy.
