Managing a lawn can be a difficult task and it may not be easy as it looks. You may think “how hard can that be?” True, it may not look difficult but actually nothing in life is easy, not even your lawn.

Know that it is the hard work, sweat and blood of a caring home owner who dedicated a lot of his/her time to make sure that the lawn reaches that lush green standard and to keep it that way.
First things first. You must identify what king of soil comprises your lawn. Different types of soils have different needs that require our attention.

There is only small variations between them so it is not much of a problem what kind of grass you use.
Then you must prepare the lawn. Make sure you level it or get it to the desired level. Get rid of the unwanted items and boulders in the lawn. Mark areas that you will be using constantly to tread on or the path leading to the front door. You can use stepping stones or other decorative items to make sure that the grass is not always trampled on or driven on.
Reticulation installation can be done easily and all you have to do is hire a professional or professionals in that field. If you don’t know where to find them the easiest is online research.
