Turfgrass Maintenance

Watering

Watering depends upon the turfgrass variety, climate conditions, soil absorption rate and the heat intensity. Watering is not hard, but some understanding helps. If you apply only a little water every few days, you will moisten the soil only ½ to 1 inch deep, and that’s where the roots will be inclined to grow. However, if you water deeply and less often, the roots will grow several inches deep, and they’ll stay moist for a longer period of time thus establishing a lawn that is deeply rooted and more inclined to be drought tolerant. If you water correctly, as a rule you can water less often. More about watering and ET rates»

Mowing

Mowing is one of the most basic, yet overlooked issues in Lawn Care. Mowing at the proper height for your grass variety and with a sharp mower blade can give you the most return on the overall appearance, aesthetics and health of your lawn. Each variety of Turfgrass has its specific height for optimum performance. Mowing to keep the grass at its best growing height will increase your lawn’s density and reduce weed, disease and plant density problems while strengthening your lawn's ability to withstand foot traffic or stress.

Weed Control

There is nothing you can do to prevent occasional weeds from appearing in even the best cared for lawn. Wind-borne seed and seeds transported by animals and people will see to that. Nature, however, cannot be blamed for the existence of large weed patches or weed infestations throughout your turfgrass. More about weed control»

Fertilizing
Fertilizing is required to meet today’s standards of turf appearance. It is essential that soil nutrients are maintained at proper levels. This process begins at the initial stage of turf installation and continues as a maintenance program throughout the life of the turf. Fertilizers are literally plant food additives. Very few soils are fertile enough to supply the nutrients which healthy plants need, thus we fertilize. More about fertilizing»
