Lawn Care Tips
The following mowing, flowering, watering, and other tips are helpful throughout the lawn season which begins April 1st and ends November 15th.
A lawn that is cut at one of the higher settings on your mower will have the ability to stay greener longer, requires less watering, and also prohibits weeds from emerging.
Do not plant flowers around trees. Flowers require more water than trees.
Do not plant flowers too close to the edge of plant beds. Flowers may be damaged during routine mowing operations.
The average lawn will need 1″ of water per week. Water each area of your lawn long enough to soak the soil to a depth of 4 to 6 inches. Soaking the soil slowly and to that depth encourages a good deep root system.
Water new seed/sod daily to keep the roots moist until it is established.
Water newly transplanted trees and shrubs by placing the hose on the soil line next to the trunk at a slow trickle.
