Every house owner wants greenery and beauty in the backyard and the front porch. A beautiful, even, and healthy lawn adds beauty to the house. It is not just a decorative thing, and this is where your family will spend precious time and create memories. So, we want this place to be as perfect as possible.


But as we all know, lawn care is no easy task. It is a complex thing. But, with time and care, it pays off.


Many new owners get confused with most common problems and give up. If you are dealing with such problems, this article is for you. We have put together a list of most common problems and ways to fix it.


And now, without any further delay, let's get started.


Problem 1: Uneven grass throughout the lawn


Unevenness is not desirable. It does not look very appealing. Your lawn looks patchy if the grass is uneven and places. And, to some extent, it even looks unhealthy. But that is a very easy problem to fix.


Solution


Many grass types do not like very shady places. Shade can make grass grow differently. To make sure you have an even growth throughout your lawn, trim regularly and prune all your trees. If your lawn gets a lot of shade, try to find the grass type that is more shade tolerant.


Problem 2: There are too many weed and weed seedlings


The war with weed is not new. Every lawn owner goes through the struggle. We do not like weed, but weed loves to take root on lawns.


Solution


To get rid of the weed, you have to promote healthy gardening habits. And it will take some time. You have to mow regularly with the sharp blade, and we recommend that you mow high. Taller grass will shade the weed, and the weed will not be able to grow as fast. Also, avoid watering daily. Weed loves a daily watering, but it is not necessary for grass. Whenever you water your grass, make sure you water deeply.


Problem 3: There are bald spots


Another very common problem, especially if you have a big lawn, you will notice small patches of dirt in between. It breaks the look of a continuous green field.


Solution


If you have bald spots on your lawn, it is more than likely that those spots are very shallow, and there are rocks beneath the soil. So, we recommend that you dig up that bald patch and considerable amount of good grass surrounding that spot. And then add topsoil and new grass on it, and it should grow out nicely.


Problem 4: The grass is thinning out


We all want a lush green lawn. If the lawn is thinning out and you can see the dirt through it, it is not a very desirable look. So, we rightfully want to fix that.


Solution


This happens mostly due to unhealthy soil and an imbalanced pH. Make sure you test the pH of your soil or get it professionally tested. And choose the type of grass that is suited for the region. Decide what kind of grass you need depending on how much sunlight your lawn gets. With a compatible grass type and a balanced pH, your lawn should be lush, green, and beautiful.
