4. Mow your lawn one day after watering. In doing so, you will help your lawn heal better from the recent cut. This can prevent the tips of the grass from becoming brown.
5. Keep your lawn clean. Pick up anything that falls on the lawn. Items such as lawn furniture, plant pots or lawn toys that are on the lawn in the winter should be moved so that new grass can be planted. When grass is dormant, things can set on it without doing much damage. During the spring months, however, the grass is beginning to take on new life and areas that are covered by debris or furniture can quickly die.
