Weekly vs. Bi-weekly Lawn Care

Good Lawn Care doesn’t just happen; it is a conscience choice and requires constant maintenance.   Healthy lawns require weekly mowing.  There’s just no getting around it.  It’s easy to think that bi-weekly lawn care will make your life easier but it usually makes it more difficult.  Think about it.  It’s not just the fact of having twice the growth to cut; it’s also a matter of having at least double the water content in the grass.  Longer grass decreases the rate of evaporation.  The chute of the lawn mower gets clogged, wet grass sticks to the underside of the mower, bending over and emptying the grass catcher doubles, and large clumps of grass tend to get deposited around the lawn which kills the grass in that spot if it is left there.  It can easily triple the time it takes to mow your lawn.

 

Weekly Mowing 2

 

Weekly lawn care can help your lawn maintain a green, lush look.  Grass needs sunlight and when the blades are allowed to grow too long too consistently, the lower part of the blade begins to turn yellow.  Weekly lawn care allows plenty of sun to penetrate the grass and keep your lawn looking green.  It also decreases fungus risk because the soil isn’t allowed to become swampy.  Additionally, weeds are able to hide beneath the long blades and develop a strong root before they can be noticed and sprayed or removed.  Finally, the various problems spoken about earlier in this post are, for the most part, eliminated.  At the end of the day, weekly lawn care is by far the better way to go to maintain a healthy lawn.

Final Application of Fertilization

Get Ready for Fall Apply Your Final Application of Fertilization
As fall approaches we are all reminded to get ready for winter. This does not just apply to the festivities coming up. It also includes your yard and making sure that it is ready for the snow. Even more important it is getting your lawn ready for next spring. This can help ensure that you won’t be scrambling to get your lawn in order as summer approaches. Something you can do to get your lawn ready, is apply fertilizer.
The best way to apply this last application is to first cleanup your yard. This clean up should help get rid of leaves and other debris. After the fall cleanup you can mow your lawn for the last time. This will help promote new growth as well as help the lawn get ready for additional moisture. Now that both steps are complete now your lawn is ready for the final application of fertilizer. This will help your lawn get the best head by the time next spring comes around. Since this can be so paramount to your lawns success do not put it off. Give us a call and let us come and get your lawn ready for winter and the upcoming spring.

Getting Your Lawn Ready for Fall

Getting Your Lawn Ready for Fall
When the leaves start changing and the nights get longer. You should start thinking about preparing your lawn for the cold fall nights. The way we approach the fall is making sure that you have everything nice and tidy. Ensuring that your lawn is cut properly will help it maintain the proper amount of water. This will help stimulate new growth when snow starts to melt. You should also look at edging or trimming your yard to help keep your lawn looking professional. This can also help control pesky weeds that may pop up due to overgrowth in your lawn.
This is also the time of year to start winterizing your sprinkler system. Having pipes break during the cold it bad enough but is a nightmare during the spring. During the fall it is beneficial to plant certain flowers and other plants that pop up during spring.  If you feel like you do not have enough time please give us a call and see how we can help.

Over Watering Costs Money

Over Watering Costs Money and Can Cause Lawn Diseases
When we are out on the job we run into all sorts of problems that plague lawns. One of the biggest mistakes we typically see is overwatering. People tend to think over watering is not a big deal and that the lawn can just deal with it naturally. What many people do not know is overwatering can lead to several lawn diseases.
A few common lawn diseases due to overwatering are Pythium Blight, Leaf Spots, Snowmold. Pythium Blight is cause mainly by poor drainage in a yard mixed with high temperatures. Leaf Spots typically occur when moist leaves are left unattended and infect spot on your lawn with fungus. Snow Mold happens with snow is not particularly frozen and constantly is moistening the grass causing fungus to form. The main prevention for all of these lawn diseases is proper yard clean up and ensuring that your lawn is getting the proper amount of water and not being over watered.
