Topic:Lawn Care Basics


Caring for your lawn doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, if you understand the basics of proper lawn care, you're off to a good start. Here is some information and tips that may help you get started.



Topic:Watering


Grass can't grow without water, and that's why giving your lawn the proper amount of water is crucial to its survival. Experts recommend 1 inch of water per week, either through rain or sprinklers. While there is no way to accurately measure the amount, checking your sprinkler's water pressure can give you some indication. If grass is turning a silvery-blue or brown, you'll know it isn't receiving an adequate amount of water.

Topic:Mowing


Like getting a haircut, you want to create the right grass length, or height, when mowing. There are different recommendations based on type of grass, so knowing grass type is important. For example, Zoysia grass should be kept from 3/4 inch to 2 inches, while Kentucky Bluegrass can range from 1.5 to 2.5 inches in height.

Choose a fertilizer based on grass type. Buying a fertilizer without taking this into account is like purchasing prescription eyeglasses with any random prescription.

Choose the right type of spreader. Fertilizer spreaders vary depending on lawn size. Smaller lawns tend to use a drop spreader while larger lawns use a rotary spreader.

Fertilize 4 to 5 times a year. Early spring, late spring, late summer, early fall and late fall are ideal times. Space two months between fertilization times.



Topic:Weeding


Even well cared for lawns develop weeds from time to time. There are two types of weeds to be on the lookout for: broadleaf (which include dandelions and thistle) and grassy weeds (crabgrass and goose grass). To get rid of weeds, follow these tips:
