Why a Healthy Lawn Is the Foundation to Your Next Backyard Gathering

Your backyard plays host to many of life's big moments: from holiday and graduation parties to water balloon fights and pickup games. A vibrant, healthy lawn can quickly become the talking point of the party as it provides the perfect surface for backyard bean bag toss, badminton, ladder golf, and so much more. However, nothing can put a damper on a party like an unkempt yard with unsightly weeds, yellow spots, and painful thristles. Follow these tips from Estate to ensure that your lawn will be ready for whatever you throw at it for your next outdoor event!

1. Fertilize Your Lawn

By fertilizing your lawn and taking care of those pesky weeds prior to your gathering, your grass will be healthier and more vibrant than ever before. Make sure you give yourself enough time in advance of the party so that you can clear any dead weeds that linger. Check out Estate's full line of fertilizers to see what works best for you.

2. Mow and Edge Your Lawn

Mowing your lawn is crucial, especially after hitting your yard with fertilizer or weed killer. You can even edge your lawn to achieve that "wow" factor with your guests. Do this a day or two before your event so that your lawn looks sharp and refreshed. 

3. Prep Your Surrounding Space

Depending on your outdoor space, this could mean a lot of different things. Some ideas to spruce up the space around your yard are to trim dead tree branches, shape your bushes, and lay some fresh mulch. If you have plants or flowers, spend a few extra minutes giving them some love so that they're looking like a million bucks. 

4. Create an Area to Entertain Guests

Be sure that you have an area with sufficient seating and outdoor lighting. You should also make sure that you have a fully charged outdoor speaker because it wouldn't be a party without some tunes!

5. Finishing Touches

Do one final sweep of your yard to make sure that it's looking pristine by scanning for any balls, toys, tools, or pet droppings that you may have missed. If you think you would have a good time hanging out in this yard, chances are your guests will too!

Final Thoughts

Simply put, the benefits that a good looking lawn provides you and your guests cannot be overstated. By taking care of your backyard space, you are providing your guests with a safe and comfortable space that can withstand even the most competitive backyard games. You've put the work in; all that's left to do now is sit back, relax, and have a good time.
