Petersburg VA Real Estate: Summer Lawn Care Tips for Sellers

Posted By @ Nov 13th 2011 1:34am In: Petersburg VA Real Estate

Selling your Petersburg VA  real estate? Learning how to properly maintain your lawn this summer can give you the most enjoyment out of the season and also interest prospective buyers in your property.

Here, learn how you can make the most of the season with these summer lawn care tips:

1. Proper watering and water conservation is important at any time of year, but particularly when heat and a lack of rain lead to water deficits and drought.

2. Evaluate your lawn regularly for signs of irregular color and texture. These can be signs of damage that may result from lawn pests or disease.

3. Proper year-round lawn care keeps a lawn healthy and prevents weeds, disease and pests. But sometimes, insects you may not notice can travel from the yard to your home. To stop them, hire pest control to keep the bugs on the outside. You can also reduce their outside presence by treating the lawn for insects such as fleas and ticks and fire ants.

4. While lawns are generally the focal point of most yards, don’t forget about trees and shrubs. Well-maintained landscaping adds dimensionality to a home and increases its value.

5. In the heat of the summer, you may be tempted to mow your lawn in shorts and flip flops, but remember, you need to stay safe : wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.

6. Also, no matter what outdoor activity you’re enjoying, be sure to stay hydrated with plenty of water.

7. The essentials of good summer lawn care are watering, fertilizing and proper mowing. However, sometimes an underlying problem (such as bare spots or severely damaged turf) requires additional measures.

Better lawn care means less bugs and weeds and more pleasure and curb appeal for the summer months. This encourages buyers to imagine themselves enjoying long, care-free days entertaining friends and families in a beautifully landscaped piece of Petersburg VA real estate.
