Taking a vacation is a great way to get away from the stress of everyday life. However, there are likely some things that will need to be handled at home while you're gone. Setting up a plan for keeping your yard healthy before you leave is the key to creating a lasting, healthy lawn.
Mow Your Grass
If you generally handle your own mowing, you'll want to mow your lawn the day before you leave. Depending upon how long you'll be gone, you might want to lower the deck of your mower to cut the grass a little closer to the ground. If you're only going to be gone for a week, you can likely just operate your mower as you normally would. On the other hand, a longer vacation of two weeks or more might require having someone come and take care of your mowing.
Keep Your Lawn Watered
If you leave during the summer, it's likely that the weather will be dry while you're gone. In order to keep your lawn healthy, you might want to add some moisture periodically. Soaking your yard immediately after you mow it for the last time before your trip is a good step to take to keep your yard looking lush and green. If you're going to be gone for several days, you might want to look into getting someone to water your lawn.
