We all get a bit lazy sometimes. We shove crumbs under the refrigerator, let the trash can fill up too much and take a little longer than we should getting out of bed. 

However, a lack of motivation and energy doesn’t mean your lawn has to suffer. If you’re looking for ways to maintain a healthy lawn with a more relaxed approach, today’s post is for you.

Efficient Lawn Care and Gardening Techniques

Lower effort doesn’t mean neglect. You can adopt strategies that give you a more beautiful yard if you follow the right practices. Here are some tips, tricks and techniques that will help your lawn grow with minimal effort on your part:

  • Overseeding: By seeding generously in patches of dirt or dead/thinning grass, you can avoid the effort and cost of a full lawn renovation.
  • Consistent watering: If you have a sprinkler system, set up a schedule and stick to it. If you don’t, consider investing in one to make caring for your lawn more convenient.
  • Cut at the right height: When you mow, leave your grass a little taller than normal. This might seem counterintuitive, but it’s easier to mow and it shades the soil better, reducing weed growth and requiring less frequent mowing.
  • Use natural pest control: Insects and birds can actually help you naturally control pests and you don’t have to use chemical pesticides.

Why Less is Sometimes More

Not doing as much and trying out the techniques above can benefit your lawn in several ways. By ensuring your lawn has the right water amount, strong roots systems and ample shade, it can result in reduced maintenance costs, healthier soil and help wildlife. Using fewer chemicals is also a plus for many people.

How New Equipment Can Help

One final way you can take better care of your lawn and minimize your effort at the same time is by investing in new outdoor power equipment. From aerators and spreaders to mulchers and driving lawn mowers, there are several options to make your life a little easier. Whatever you do, set up a rhythm or schedule and be consistent with taking care of your lawn so you don’t have to do major landscaping changes down the road. Not only will they be costly, but you’ll have to use a lot of valuable energy as well.
