What does a Healthy Lawn Look Like?

While there are many causes for an unhealthy lawn, watering-related issues like over-watering and under-watering are both common culprits. You can tell a healthy lawn by:

  • No large areas of dirt or dead grass
  • The grass is springy and quickly bounces back after being walked upon
  • Thatch at the soil level is consistent and not overly built-up
  • Rich consistent color of medium green to dark green
  • Grass blades have a fairly even thickness and aren’t thin or frayed
  • The grass is not so thin that dirt can easily be seen through it
