As a homeowner, the two most important responsibilities you have
to your lawn are to ensure the lawn is at a good height to promote
growth and to make sure the lawn receives the proper amount of
water it needs. If either is ignored then the overall appearance
of the lawn will deteriorate. Below are some helpful tips for
both mowing and watering.
Always cut the lawn between 2.5” – 3” (this
is the top notch on most lawn mowers), as this helps to build
an extensive root system and helps the lawn retain moisture.
Make sure that your lawn mower blade is sharp because using
a dull blade can damage the grass and drastically reduce the growth
rate. To test if your blade is dull, cut a patch of the lawn and
check the grass blades to see if they have been cut cleanly or
not. If there is a fine cut on the grass, then your mower blade
is fine and if not then it should be sharpened.
Leave the clippings on the lawn after each cut because mulching
the grass will provide added nitrogen for the turf and the clippings
are a good source of water. * Never leave so many clippings that
the lawn appears “smothered,” as it can harm the lawn.
When you are setting up your sprinkler, be sure to place a measuring
cup in the centre of the lawn. The container should have about
an inch of water by the end of the watering. The amount of time
it takes can be used as a guideline for each time you water.
Never over water the lawn, as it can cause diseases and can
lead to poor growing conditions.
The best time to water is in the early morning, not at night.
Watering in the morning will allow the turf to absorb the water
it needs and the excess will be evaporated as the daytime temperature
Lawn Maintenance Services – Grass
One of the most important aspects of keeping a lawn healthy is
the way it is maintained. We offer high-quality lawn maintenance
services because we know how much our customers take pride in
To achieve the best lawn possible, we recommend having your lawn
cut weekly to a height of 2½” from May until the
end of June and again from September to the end of October. In
July and August, the lawn is usually stressed due to high temperatures
and lower water supply. During these months, we suggest cutting
the lawn at a height of 3” every two (2) weeks. For optimum
results, a Spring-clean up in April will prepare your lawn for
the summer months and a fall clean up in November prepares the
turf for winter.
