Lawn Care – Are You Suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Lawn Care Disorder?
Do you have a friend or family member that enjoys staring at their lawn? Well, you might want to keep an eye out for them because they just might be in danger of becoming mentally ill. It's no joke! Obsessive Compulsive Lawn Care Disorder is a mental illness where the owner of the house loves his or her lawn so much that they end up smothering it.
Here are the signs that you need to look out for to know if someone is suffering from OCLCD:
People suffering from OCLCD usually depict certain behavior when it comes to their lawn such as:
Mowing the grass too short, since they want all of the areas even. This just invites infestation and weeds.
They tend to water their lawn every day. They forget about water conservation and keep watering their lawn which makes it weak and susceptible to diseases. Plus, it adds to your utility bill.
They frequently fertilize their lawn for no apparent reason. Although fertilizing may help revitalize bare lawn, too much fertilizer could prevent the grass from getting air and water to the roots.
Since they want their lawn to be perfect, they tend to mow their lawn in one direction every time. This just leaves their lawn with striped lines that cause the grass to grow irregularly.
Here's How You Can Help Them!
Show them that you don't have to use fertilizers all the time; they could instead use slow release fertilizers that release the nutrients that are required by the grass over a longer period.
Show them that they shouldn't be cutting the grass too short; it should at least be an inch high.
Put them in the driver seat of their lawnmower showing them that they need to take charge and that they're strong enough to fight this disease.
Grab them in the morning for a quick watering and then remove the sprinklers so they can't water again.
