  3. Proper watering practices.

Mowing

  • Always mow high (3-3.5″) to shade soil and crowd out weeds.
  • Sharpen your mower blade often.
  • Mulch the clippings if possible.
  • Never cut off more than one third of the grass blade.
  • Never mow when temperatures exceed 90 degrees.

Watering

  • A healthy lawn needs about 1-2 inches of water per week.
  • Only water when it is necessary. Often, rain is sufficient.
  • Never water at night during humid weather.
  • Water deeply (about an hour per zone every three days).
  • Be diligent and inspect your lawn regularly for dry spots, Leaf Lesions, or turf damage.
