What can I do to maintain a beautiful lawn?
grass simply needs water, air, sunlight and
nutrients. In most areas, grass needs approximately
one-inch of water a week. Infrequent and deep
watering encourages deep roots and a healthy
lawn. Mow frequently enough (with a sharp blade)
so you never cut-off more than one-third of
the grass blades in a single mowing. This will
also allow you to leave the clippings on the
lawn so they can naturally degrade and return
nutrients to the lawn. Limb up trees so they
allow as much light as possible onto the lawn.
Fertilize regularly according, or according
to the specific needs of your lawn. Aerate every
other year to reduce compaction and increase
the exchange of water and air at the root level.
