Proper Lawn Care Hints

Stop repeating some of these common lawn care mistakes, and have a beautiful green yard this month.


Water Deeply


Water your lawn thoroughly and less often. Apply 4 to 6 inches of water to your lawn. This will allow the roots to reach deep soil nutrients.

Don't Cut Too Short

Each grass has an ideal length - find it and keep it. Shorter grass won't be able to sustain harsh weather as easily.

Fertilize Twice

It's best to fertilize in the fall and in the spring. The fall so grass can survive the long winter, and in the spring to try and jump-start your lawn back to life.

Balance pH

You want to balance your soil somewhere between 6 and 7.2 on the pH scale. If you're not sure of your soil composition, take a sample with a tablespoon, and send it to get tested.
