Don’t Forget the Basics
When it comes to taking care of your lawn, one of the most important maintenance practices is also the most basic—mowing.

When deciding on a mowing height, the most important consideration is turfgrass type. Our recommendation for your lawn is:
Fine Fescue 2”- 2 ½”
Ryegrass 2” – 2 ½”
Kentucky bluegrass 2” – 2 ½”
Tall Fescue 2 ½” – 3”
During the hottest months, the higher cut is recommended. Grass can be mowed shorter in cooler months.
Determining when to mow should be based on the growth rate of the grass, not the calendar. To keep your lawn looking its best, remove only about 1/3 of the leaf blade each time you mow.
Another good practice is to change direction with each mowing. This keeps the turf growing in an erect, upright position rather than leaning in the direction it was mowed. It also helps reduce turf wear and the possibility of scalping.
Making sure your rotary mower blade is sharp is probably the single most important requirement for proper mowing. A dull blade rips and shreds the grass instead of cutting it. Mowing with a dull edge makes the grass susceptible to several problems, such as brown leaf tips, diseases, and insects. A good guideline for blade sharpening is to sharpen your rotary blade once a month. Try it! You will really notice a difference.
Don’t Forget the Basics
When it comes to taking care of your lawn, one of the most important maintenance practices is also one of the most basic—watering.
As the company that takes care of your lawn, you can count on us to apply the correct fertilizer and control products at the right time of the year. In turn, we must count on you to properly water your lawn. It is important that we function as a team. Please read the information we leave at the door. Some applications should be watered in the right way, while others should not be watered for at least a day.
Your lawn should receive roughly 1 to 1 ½ inches of water per week during the hottest, driest months. Deep watering to a soil depth of at least 6 inches is recommended. Light watering that merely dampens the grass is of little benefit and can actually harm your lawn. Place an empty coffee can or bucket on your lawn to determine how long it takes to apply 1 to 1 ½ inches of water.
Very early morning watering is ideal. Midday watering, when the weather is hot and dry, can waste water due to excessive evaporation. Evening watering tends to promote disease problems. Keep in mind that the key to effective watering is to give your lawn enough moisture to reach the deep roots of the grass plants.
During the summer months, it is a good idea to water your lawn the day before you mow and then try to mow during the coolest part of the day. This minimizes the browning effect of summer mowing and decreases the time it takes the turf to heal. Mow your lawn as it needs it. Never remove more than 1/3 of the leaf blade at any one time.
