Proper Lawn Maintenance

Published on February 24th, 2015

Tips for the Average Homeowner to Maintain a Healthy Lawn:
Mow grass at a minimum height of 3 inches. Longer grass retains more water and allows it to develop longer roots. This will make the grass stronger and more tolerant, allowing it to outcompete those pesky weeds.
– Sharpen your mower blade once a year, touching it up periodically throughout the mowing season. This is a simple way to prevent damage to grass blades.
– Leave mulched grass clippings on the lawn to add nutrients (especially Nitrogen!) back into the soil.
– Core Aeration and a Lime application should be done at least every three years.
