Your air conditioner doesn’t need prep for summer
Your air conditioning unit isn’t ready to roll from season to season without proper tune-ups and maintenance. You should clear out dirt and debris, check the coolant level and replace the fan filter, as well as inspect the outside for any damage from the elements.
It’s also important to continue checking the unit throughout the season, especially after storms or high winds, to make sure your coils and fins stay clear.
Cutting grass lower means less mowing
There’s a lot that goes into choosing the right height to cut your grass. However, choosing a lower height doesn’t mean you’ll mow less frequently. Cutting grass too short can damage the soil, the grass blades and the mower itself. Short grass also won’t block the sun properly, which can dry out the soil and create dead patches.
You need to water your lawn every day
Some lawns need more watering, others less; there’s no “one size fits all” approach. However, there are some general rules to follow to keep your grass green and lush. Instead of watering every day for 15 minutes, water once a week for an hour. That ensures moisture reaches deep into the root system, producing a healthier, more drought-tolerant lawn.
