4 ways to ensure your lawn is ready for your Christmas party

A lawn makes the perfect party location. ‘Tis the season to invite your friends and family to your outdoor Christmas party in your yard. So what’s holding you back? Are you worried about your meticulously maintained lawn? Don’t be! 

If Rudolph decides to use your lawn as a landing strip, you need to be prepared.  With a few simple tips, you can enjoy your party without having to worry about the state of your lawn during and after the event. 

  • Clean up the Lawn 

For the big celebration, you want your lawn to look its best. Fertilizing and weed-spraying can assist in achieving clean, green perfection. Plan to apply any fertiliser or herbicides well ahead of time, preferably a week or more before the party, if the weather permits. This will guarantee that the treatments have enough time to improve the lawn, that any weeds have died and been mowed, and that any odours have disappeared. It’s also a good idea to put off operations like core aeration, which can disperse small cores of dirt across the grass and cause holes that are dangerous for anyone wearing high heels.

  • Establish the right routine 

Water thoroughly since this causes the water to infiltrate the soil, encouraging the roots to develop deeper. As a result, your lawn can get the water deep in the soil, which helps it withstand dry seasons. If your grass begins to become a yellow or brown colour, it is a sign that it isn’t getting enough water. 

Tip: If you’re not sure if you’re watering enough, consider hanging a soaking wet towel over the fence every time you irrigate. Your lawn will require another irrigation once the towel is entirely dry.

  • Day of the party 

Don’t mow your lawn on the day of the party or the day before – the grass will provide some more cushioning for your soil. Watering on the morning of the party or the night before could result in a muddy disaster, which could be harmful to both your lawn and your carpets inside. Depending on the climate where you reside, 2-3 days before the big day is the best time to mow. Remove any grass clippings and other debris from the garden furniture.

  • Aftercare 

This is the time to take extra care of your lawn. Pick up any trash and empty containers first, then straighten everything out. After that, you must allow your lawn time to heal. If you’ve been lucky and only have aesthetic damage (flattened grass, etc.) but the soil seems fine, all you need to do now is rake it up and get back to watering and aerating your lawn. Maintaining your lawn is not a difficult task. All it tasks is to pick the right turf suitable for your lawn.
