Mowing is the most repeated aspect of landscape care. It always adds stress to the grass plants, so be sure to do the following to reduce the stress and to promote health: Mow early in the morning or, even better, in the evening and make sure that the grass is dry. Ensure that your mower blades are sharp and mow frequently enough so that no more than the top third of the grass blade is cut. Leave your grass clippings on the lawn and be sure to change directions each time you mow.
A healthy and actively growing lawn uses a great deal of energy. The most important thing you can do to supply this energy is to feed it. A well-fed lawn is healthier, which means it has a better root system to combat heat, cold, drought, mowing, foot traffic and other stresses. If you put your lawn on a regular feeding schedule it will not only look lush and green, but will have the root system to sustain the challenges that it faces each season. Fertilizer helps your lawn stay healthy by promoting new leaf and root growth, aiding in recovery from foot traffic and pest damage, reducing and controlling weeds, and replacing or supplying nutrients needed for grass growth.

The amount of water your lawn requires and receives will determine its overall health, beauty and ability to withstand use and drought. One inch a week is the standard water requirement established for most lawns; however, this will vary due to different turf species, seasonal change, and different soil types. Grass in need of water will have a grey-blue cast to it, rather than a blue-green or green color. Also, footprints will still appear after a half-hour or more on a lawn in need of water, while on a well watered lawn footprints will completely disappear within minutes.
Paying attention to your lawn and providing the proper care it needs will help you attain a beautiful, healthy, and happy lawn. Order your sod today to take advantage of our September savings and begin enjoying your lawn this fall!
