LAWN 101

Updated: Mar 24, 2020

When is the best time to mow?

Did you know the average American spends nearly 70 hours a year taking care of their lawn? This doesn’t even include the time it takes to mow! If your neighborhood lawnmower has returned to school and you don’t know when your grass will be cut again, we can help.

First, Lawn 101

Cutting your grass too short can actually damage your lawn because it robs your grass of the nutrients it needs to grow back properly.

If your grass is dry, do not mow until you have watered or until it rains. Mowing a dry lawn will further stress the turf and expose it to the drying effects of the wind and sun.

Most people don’t think edging their lawn is necessary, but edging can make a big difference in the health of your lawn and the way your lawn looks. Edging helps reduce weeds and provides a smooth, manicured look.

Fertilizing is another key to having a healthy lawn! Most people don’t realize that lawns need fertilizer as much as they need water and sunshine. Over time, soil naturally loses many of the nutrients it needs. Fertilizer helps replace those nutrients and helps the soil survive.
