Lawn care isn’t easy, so why do we do it? Because we love our lawns, and it shows! Now that April is here, it’s time to show off your own lawn. We’re celebrating National Lawn Care Month with three of our top reasons why you should love taking care of your lawn.
Reason #1: Curb Appeal
Let’s face it – no one wants to be known for having the worst lawn in the neighborhood. Every block has one of those … brown, patchy, overgrown yards. More dandelions, clover, and other weeds than actual grass blades. Dust and dirt. Dead or dying trees and flowers. We can go on, but you can already imagine which one of your neighbors we’re referring to.
A healthy lawn boosts curb appeal for the whole block. It helps beautify not only the place you call home, but also the homes of your neighbors, friends, and fellow citizens. It promotes happiness and helps lessen stress. Whether you’re thinking of selling your home or plan to stay put forever, your property simply looks better and makes you feel better when it’s healthy and well maintained.
We share a lot of tips and tricks for getting the most out of your lawn, but here are a couple of ways to continue to enhance your home’s curb appeal:
Reason #2: Spending Time Outside
After another winter spent cooped up indoors, spring in Indiana can never get here soon enough. Sure, warmer weather means planting, mowing, fertilizing, watering, and yelling at your neighbor’s dog to take their “business” elsewhere, but it still beats shoveling snow!
From grilling burgers for friends, to chasing fireflies with family, nothing beats quality time at home spent outdoors. Naturally, there are a lot of green thumbs around the Lawn Pride office, and fresh produce always tastes better when you grow it in your garden versus buy it at the grocery store. We also enjoy those early morning walks when the neighborhood is still asleep and the birds are just waking up, along with late nights full of cold drinks and warm conversation.
Reason #3: Celebrating the GREEN in Growing Season…
…and the yellow, pink, purple, red, white, and blue, and every other color that pops up across your growing yard. A healthy lawn means a healthy environment, too. Pollinators benefit from the blooming vegetation. Oxygen thrives while pollutants are pulled out of the air. Soil is nurtured. And grass helps naturally lower surrounding ambient temperatures compared to cement, asphalt, and other manmade “heat islands.” A healthy lawn makes everyone happy – from Mother Nature all the way down to the family dog.
Along with every month of the year, there are many reasons to love your lawn in April for National Lawn Care Month. Your lawn brings your home curb appeal, it allows you to enjoy time and make memories outdoors, and it helps our environment stay green. We hope all of our Central Indiana homeowners are enjoying this special month dedicated to showing your lawn you care! Contact us today to learn more about our programs and services.
