Mowing Tips

  • Always mow high (3.5"-4") to shade soil and crowd out weeds.

  • Sharpen your mower blade often.

  • Mulch the clippings if possible.

  • Leave the lawn longer during the summer months.
  • Never cut off more than one third of the grass blade.

  • Never mow when temperatures exceed 90 degrees.


Watering Tips

  • 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.
