Lawns and Lawncare

Turfgrass is hands down the most abused set of plants out there.  Overwatering is the number one form of turfgrass abuse.  Insects and fungal diseases are often a secondary problem to a stressed turfgrass.  To keep your lawn healthy, here are a few tips: 

-Only water 1-1/2 inches per week during the spring and fall months

-Only water 2-21/2 inches per week during the hot summer months

-Mow turfgrass at 2 1/2 - 3 inches to promote strong roots

-Use slow-release fertilizers whenever possible
