Lawn Care Tips

FESCUE AND BLUEGRASS LAWN CARE TIPS:

  1. Mow high and often, as you never want to remove more than 1/3 of the blade at any mowing. By mowing high, 2 ½ to 3 inches, you keep the soil surface cooler reducing evaporation and reducing the need for as much irrigation. Shading the soil surface reduces the amount of weed germination as well.
  2. Keep your lawn mower blade sharp to give a cleaner cut to the grass. This will reduce damage, and the possibility of secondary insect or disease outbreaks.
