When you have Super Lawns service, we do all the heavy-lifting to make your lawn fuller and healthier — but there are simple things you can do to help keep your lawn looking its best.
Lawn care tips:
- Mow at 3 Inches
Always mow your lawn at 3 inches and frequently enough so as to never remove more than 1/3 of the blade at one time. Cutting less than 3 inches promotes weeds and causes rapid drying.
- Hot Spells
During hot dry spells, don’t mow your lawn if it really doesn’t need it.
- Trimming Edges
When trimming the edges along sidewalks and driveways, try to avoid scalping. Cutting less than 3 inches promotes weeds and causes these areas to dry out faster than normal.
- Heavy soil?
In heavy clay soils, water deeply (2-3) hours each section once or twice a week. Daily short watering promotes weeds and disease.
- Water in the Morning
Water only in the morning to mid- afternoon during hot, humid weather. Water the areas closest to soft tissue ornamentals (such as Japanese Red Maples) first thing so as to avoid sun-scorch.
