Fertilize

Your lawn should be fertilized several times

throughout the growing season. Regular fertilization

keeps your grass growing and the weeds out. Follow our 5-step fertilization program

for a lush, green lawn.

Fertilizer numbers. What do they mean?
    • 1. The 1st number is the % of nitrogen the fertilizer contains. Nitrogen promotes overall grass growth.
    • 2. The 2nd number is the % of phosphate the fertilizer contains. Phosphate promotes strong root growth.
    • 3. The 3rd number is the % of potassium the fertilizer contains. Potassium helps grass withstand stress.

For example: 15-2-5 fertilizer has 15% nitrogen, 2% phosphate & 5% potassium.

Watering Follow these 2 simple steps.
1. Water your lawn only when it needs it.

Overwatering is bad for your lawns health and can promote the development of fungus and disease. The easiest way to determine whether your lawn needs water is to simply look at it! When grass needs watered it will change to a blue/gray color and older blades will begin to wilt. Also, your footprints will remain longer than ususal. If your lawn shows these symptoms, then it's time to water.

2. Water deeply to encourage root growth.

Apply enough water to penetrate the roots. In general 1" of water will penetrate sandy soils to 12", loamy soils (sand, silt & clay) to 6-8", and clay soils 4-5". These are estimates. The best way to know how much water to apply is to have good knowledge of your soil composition.

Helpful Hints
  • Watering in the evening is not recommended. It reduces evaporation and can lead to disease. Water early in the morning.
  • Newly seeded lawns require more frequent watering than established lawns.
  • Aerating your lawn once a year can help increase your soil's water absorbtion and reduce run off
Weed Control

Proper lawn maintenance will greatly reduce the invasion of weeds, but even the highest quality lawn will be invaded by one or more turfgrass weeds. Chemical control can eliminate weeds and be used to prevent or reduce future weed establishment.

Insect Control

Many insects can damage lawns. They can cause the grass to turn brown and die or they build unsightly mounds that may smother the grass. Other insects can infest your lawn but not damage it. Insects can be controlled with insecticides. The most important aspect of this step is applying the correct product to your lawn to alleviate the infestation.

Proper Mowing

Proper lawn maintenance will greatly reduce the invasion of weeds, but even the highest quality lawn will be invaded by one or more turfgrass weeds. Chemical control can eliminate weeds and be used to prevent or reduce future weed establishment.
