Your lawn needs 1 ½” inches of water weekly. Apply enough water to thoroughly soak the root zone. This means watering all areas for at least one hour, three times weekly. Watering is especially important in the hot summer to avoid drought stress. If your lawn does become dormant in the summer, don’t worry. It’s just the lawn’s natural defense against drought. It will come back as it gets the moisture it requires.

Lawn Cutting
Lawn cutting is an important aspect of proper lawn care. No more than 1/3 of the blade should be cut off at one time. The lawn should be consistently cut at least once weekly all season long. Keep blades sharp. The cutting height should be kept at 2 ½ to 3 inches. Leave the grass clippings on your lawn to recycle nutrients and moisture.

  • Cooling - The front lawns of 8 houses has the cooling effect of about 70 tons of air conditioning!

  • Soil Quality - A healthy lawn prevents erosion by water or wind and the loss of valuable topsoil - less mud and dust in the house.
  • Water Quality - Healthy lawns absorb rainfall 4 to 6 times more effectively than farm fields, returning the moisture to the water table where it can again be used by everyone.
