My plan for the summer was to update the curb appeal of our house. So far, I have updated the front door, removed the corbels and railings and replaced the columns.
As a DIYer, I am constantly focused on the inside of the house and now don’t feel like the outside is a good representation of our style! Yes, curb appeal involves what the outside of your house looks like BUT a huge part of it is also a well manicured lawn that looks green and lush in the hot summer months.
I am partnering with Scotts Miracle-Gro from The Home Depot to make sure that our lawn has the nutrients it needs to flourish and stay green all summer long.
Scotts Miracle-Gro Products I am using:
Because every lawn is different, you may need different products than what I am using. We asked a store associate for help and showed some photos of our lawn to decide what would be best for our lawn needs. In early Spring, we applied the Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action and now 8 weeks later we are applying the Scotts Turf Builder Ultrafeed. It is a fast-acting, long-lasting way to feed your yard. By utilizing Scotts Secure Nutrients, a patented particle, nutrients are released when your lawn needs them which helps 1 feeding last for 6-months. Apply Scotts Turf Builder UltraFeed to all grass types and then lightly water in for best results. It’s an easy way to a great, green lawn.
Scotts makes several different size seed spreaders that you can use for laying down the product. We purchased the one that covered 15,000sq ft due to our lawn size. If you are unsure the size, simply download the My Lawn App to calculate.
Bug + Weed B-Gon
We are using the Bug B-gon spray because it works above and below the surface to kill 142 insects. The granules kill by contact and work on ants, fleas, ticks, grubs, spiders, crickets, beetles and more.
The Weed B-gon is also great for spot treatment throughout the summer because it is guaranteed to kill crabgrass, dandelions and other common lawn weeds to the root!
The Ortho Bug B-gon spray controls bugs inside the home and outside perimeter. It is best sprayed around entryways, windows, etc. *not to be used on your lawn*
