Beyond Mowing: Seasonal Lawn Care for Myton Rental Homes

Myton Rental Property with a Well-Maintained Front YardA delightful lawn, when combined with a very easily maintained landscape design, can be an important attraction when renters are choosing a rental home. First impressions and feelings are principal for Myton rental homes, and an irresistible yard makes a world of difference toward keeping your rental houses rented. Except that the exact chores needed to keep a gorgeous lawn can, from time to time, be startling 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 absolute truth is that there are a number of relevant obligations that come with maintaining a healthy lawn, a few 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 crucial because it enables the fertilizer and water to completely seep into the soil below. Warm-season grasses should be dethatched and aerated in the springtime, as well. Once cleared, dethatched, and aerated, a combination fertilizer and pre-emergent herbicide should be applied to the lawn.

If completed in early spring, this can help block weeds and crabgrass from growing, just as it will stimulate fresh grass growth in any vacant parts. A second application is commonly administered about six to eight weeks later, along with 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.

On that note, to keep a lawn healthy for the rest of the year, it’s imperative to mow quite often and early in the spring. Allowing the grass to grow too high and then mowing it too short can ravage the roots, even kill the grass thoroughly. When the first stem surfaces, experts prompt mowing every five days approximately for the first six weeks of spring, along with appropriate aeration at the right times. This, together with safeguarding that the lawnmower is adjusted so you are only removing, at most, the top third of the grass blade at any time, will promote a thick, full lawn all summer long.

Correct lawn care takes so much time and energy to nail down well. Conceding that your tenant has affirmed to care for your Myton rental home’s lawn, there is no guarantee that they will doubtless do so or that they will look after it correctly.

To keep your rental home’s lawn in good condition and healthy, it’s imperative to undertake regular property evaluations that assess its shape and evolvement from season to season. When you work with Real Property Management Uintah, all of this is taken care of for you. We can support you in deciding on the optimum practice of lawn maintenance for your needs and, perhaps more significantly, we will do routine checks to see to it that acceptable care is being completed in a timely fashion.
