The good news is, with our service you don’t have to slave over your lawn to keep it healthy. In reality, it’s not the amount of work you put into your lawn — it’s when and how you do it. The following lawn care practices are essential for a healthy lawn.
Healthy lawn practice No.1 – We will Adjust our cutting height to the time of year.
We Know The best height to cut grass depends on the type of grass, the region and the time of year. For cool-climate grasses, we use a 1-1/2 in. cutting height for the first mowing of the year to remove dead grass and allow more sunlight to reach the crowns of the grass plants. When the temperature rises then we will also raise the blade during the heat of summer to two inches or more. Then lower the blade back to 1-1/2 in. for the last cutting of the year. For warm-climate grasses, these heights will be about 1/2 in.
Healthy lawn practice No.2- We Use a Sharp Mower Blade
By regular maintenance, the use of a sharp and balanced blade cuts grass cleanly and evenly. A dull one tears grass instead of cutting it cleanly. Damaged grass turns yellow, requires more water and nutrients to recover, and is more susceptible to disease. An unbalanced blade compounds the problem and can damage our lawn mower’s bearings. Sharpening and balancing a blade three times a year is usually enough to maintain a good cutting edge — unless you hit lots of rocks.
Healthy lawn practice No. 3: Soaking the lawn a few times is much better than many light sprinklings
By watering deep into the soil it will help develop roots that grow deep and that tap into subsurface water. Light sprinklings moisten only the grass and surface of the soil, this type of practice is not healthy as it encourages the lawns shallow root growth and increasing the need for more frequent watering. Lawns often require 1 to 2 in. of water per week from you or Mother Nature, with a frequency of three- or four-day intervals, but this can vary drastically depending on the temperature, type of grass and soil conditions. Grasses grown in sandy soils may need twice as much water since they drain quickly. Grasses grown in slow-draining clay soils may need only half as much.
When your lawn loses its bounce or resiliency, or when it wilts, exposing the dull green bottoms of the blades, it needs water. In general, water until the soil is moist four to five inches down, then wait to water again until the top one or two inches dries out. To find out how much water your sprinkler delivers, set out a cake pan, turn on your sprinkler, then time how long it takes for the water to reach a depth of one inch.
The best time of day to water is early morning. Water pressure is high, less water is lost to evaporation and your lawn has plenty of time to dry out before nightfall. Lawns that remain wet overnight are more susceptible to disease caused by moisture-loving mold and other fungi.
Properly watered lawns develop deep, healthy roots. An impact sprinkler delivers water quickly, with less “hang time” for evaporation; a 3/4-in. hose delivers much more water volume than its 1/2-in. cousin.
