Beyond Mowing: Seasonal Lawn Care for Arcadia Rental Homes

Arcadia Rental Property with a Well-Maintained Front YardA fine lawn, when paired up with a comfortable and easily maintained landscape design, can be a substantial attraction when renters are settling on a rental home. First thoughts and impressions are imperative for Arcadia rental homes and a captivating yard can help you get far toward having your rental promptly leased. But, the actual activity involved with having an attractive lawn can, now and then, be alarming for a tenant. They like how it makes their rental home look, but they may not know how to properly care for a lawn or be willing to put in the amount of time and energy a healthy lawn requires.

The truth is that there are a number of needed tasks that come with retaining a healthy lawn, a handful of which are seasonally specific. During the winter, lawns in most areas are dormant, a necessary defense against the cold. Spring’s warmer temperatures will bring a burst of fresh green grass and, at the same time, several important lawn maintenance tasks.

A whole-yard clean-up is an important first step in any lawn care. Clearing leaves and debris is critical because it causes the fertilizer and water to be totally seeped and absorbed into the soil below. Warm-season grasses should be dethatched and aerated in the springtime, on top of everything else. Once cleared, dethatched, and aerated, a combination fertilizer and pre-emergent herbicide should be applied to the lawn.

If this is done in early spring, this can help keep undesired weeds and crabgrass from developing, and likewise support new grass growth in any cleared and bare parts. A second application is usually urged about six to eight weeks later, in addition to a dose of a broadleaf weed killer. Use of all of these chemicals can be hazardous if not applied or handled correctly. Because of this, these steps are usually a property owner’s responsibility and not a tenant’s.

All in all, to keep a healthy lawn for a whole year, it’s imperative to mow more often and early in the spring. Leaving the grass to grow too high and then mowing it too short can affect the roots, even kill the grass altogether. When the first leaves pop up, experts counsel mowing every five days approximately for the first six weeks of spring, apart from exact aeration at the best times. This, combined with making sure the lawnmower is properly adjusted in order for you to only cut the top third of the grass blade every time will encourage a thick, full lawn the entire summer.

The right lawn care takes too much time and energy to manage. Even if your tenant has confirmed to attend to your Arcadia rental home’s lawn, there is no complete assurance that they will unquestionably do so or that they will be able to know how to care for it correctly.
