If you really care about making it nice and green so it looks like the other lawns that hire a lawn service, then yes.
Once a year, only for my front yard I do this:
Water the entire area very well, maybe several hours or more if ground is dry.
Buy box of Miracle grow, either select or Miracle grow for Lawns.
Put it in miracle grow dispenser attach to hose and apply by hand to the whole front lawn.
Give it several good watering sessions over the next few days, starting about a day after you apply the miracle grow.
Like others said, mow as high as your mower goes, let it grow as long as you can.
If you use the miracle grow like I described with the watering, you will notice a dramatic improvement in how green the lawn is within a few days.
