MADISON (WKOW) -- You can increase your lawn's health and beauty with proper mowing and fertilization.
Melinda Myers says you should mow high and often. You shouldn't remove more than a third of the grass height at one time. She also suggests leaving clippings on the lawn because they add moisture, organic matter, and nutrients to the soil.
Melinda says even one application of proper fertilization can greatly reduce weeds. You should apply most of your fertilizer in the fall for the best results.
