As described in our Lawn Care section, maintenance involves many steps at different times throughout the seasons to ensure a thick, green lawn that is free from weeds. Failure to keep up with the tasks will almost always produce sparse, yellow grass that can quickly be overcome by weeds and crabgrass which leads to more costs, time and energy to correct. So why wait? Contact us today for a free estimate.
Start early! It’s important to begin in early spring so that your lawn will start the year off right. Nothing beats preventative measures. Although lawn restoration is possible, and costly, it’s better to start off right and stay on track and your efforts will show! So when and where do you start? Read on and don't forget to check out all of our service pages for the correct steps and the correct times and general guidance and tips.
The ideal time to begin is after the ground temperature remains at 55 degrees or above. This is usually somewhere between February to April, depending on the climate you live in. Typically we start when the first mow of the season is needed, clean up the clippings after mowing, then water and aerate the lawn. Apply your lawn fertilization and treatments a few days later. Overseed the lawn for a thick growth of healthy grass. Don't be greedy with seeds, this will ensure a plush fluffy grass grows. Remember to water daily until the new grass has grown out! After the new grass reaches about 3 inches you can return to watering your lawn about once a week or about an inch of water per week. Adding lawn sand is a good measure for weed control.
Mow the lawn for routine maintenance but don’t cut the grass too low. 3 inches high is the standard recommendation. This will definitely mean that you will need to mow more often but it is the best action for the grass and keeps the roots healthy. Fertilizer and treatments should be applied throughout the warmer weather with the last application of the year being a good winterizing product.
Proper lawn maintenance is indeed very involved but following the steps on our service pages will give you a great start to understanding how to perform the tasks yourself.
