Are you experiencing allergy attacks because of seasonal pollen? Well, you are not alone. While you can find treatments and drugs for seasonal allergies, there are ways to combat your condition. One is by touching up your landscape. Here are ways you can do that:
Fertilize your lawn
The fertilizer will provide important nutrients to keep your grass green and healthy. If done regularly, this can control the pollen circulating in your garden.
Mow the lawn after rain
It does not mean to lawn right after the rain stopped. Mowing grass works best when the grass is dry because wet grass tends to cut less cleanly, resulting in larger clippings. Better wait for a day or two before mowing your lawn. While this may not reduce the amount of pollen, it will help control the pollen from increasing.
Remove Leaves and Debris
Leaves, pine straws and other materials cover your landscape raises the allergy-causing pollen around. It can be avoided when you remove unwanted debris by regularly raking them away.
Choose the right plants
Choose plants that are not wind-pollinated. For example, Daffodils are mostly pollinated by bees, so such plant will not affect people suffering from pollen allergies. You can consult your local arborists to help you choose the right plants to grow.
Plant evergreen trees
Having deciduous trees will result in high pollen levels, especially when shedding their leaves during spring. Ask your local arborist about the use of evergreen trees. Evergreens can stay green year-round, not like hardwoods or deciduous trees that shed their leaves yearly.
