Frequently Asked Questions

What is the optimal mowing height for my lawn?

The optimal height for lawn cutting is 3-3.5 inches. Taller grass is more resistant the effects of heat and drought. Most importantly, taller grass provides shade at ground level, thus hindering the development of weeds. As a result, less chemicals are required to control weed growth.

How often should my lawn be cut?

The general rule is to never cut more than 1/3 of the total height. This is another reason why optimal height is important. After the rapid spring growth, cutting to 3 inches sets the president for the duration of the season. When the spring growth has slowed and the first mow is complete, weekly mowing will be suitable.

How often and when should I water my lawn?

You should only water your lawn in periods of drought. If your lawn needs watering you will notice the blades fold in half in an attempt to save water. At this point footprints will remain visible after stepping on the lawn. If your lawn is showing these signs, water deeply one or two times a week to a maximum of one inch. Approximately 15-30 minutes of watering time. A rain gauge can help ensure the proper amount is given. The best time to water is in the early morning between 6:00-10:00 am, as wet grass in the hot afternoon sun can burn. Early morning water allows excess water to evaporate and prevents mildew and fungus growth.

What is top dressing and over-seeding?

This process is one of the best, and most underutilized, treatments for your lawn. Top dressing and over-seeding is completed by spreading a ½ inch of top dressing soil on the lawn, followed by spreading grass seed. This helps thicken the grass and prevents the development of weeds. The top dress also acts as a fertilizer as it works its way down to the roots. After this process is completed it is important to follow a strict watering schedule until the grass germinates and grows to 4 or 5 inches in height. The seeds must stay moist and cannot dehydrate as the young grass shoots are vulnerable to dehydration.

What is thatch?

Thatch is un-decomposed stems and roots that compile near the soil surface. Thatch build up begins when turf produces organic debris faster than it can be broken down. Core aeration is an important preventative maintenance practice for thatch control. Regular core aeration alleviates compaction and improves air movement into soils. Thatch can also be removed by a dethatching machine or specialized rake.
