When it comes to taking care of your lawn, one of the most important maintenance practices is also one of the most basic. Watering and Mowing.
Best Time. 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.
Quantity. Deep watering to a soil depth of at least 6 inches is recommended. We advise 20 to 25 minutes per area of turf. This will allow the water to get into the deep roots of the grass plants. Keep in mind, the key to effective watering is to give your lawn enough moisture. During summer months, it's a good idea to water your lawn the day before you mow.
Height. We recommend you set your mower to the highest setting. To achieve the best results, the grass should be at 3 inches in height after mowing.
Equipment. Clean your mower deck and the underneath every time before you mow. You will reduce the chance of spreading any potential diseases throughout your property. Sharpen your blades each month. A dull blade makes the grass susceptible to several problems.
