Lawn Care

l Identify the best grass type for your climate and soil type.

l Test your soil. Visit your local nursery to determine your lawn’s needs.

l Water thoroughly and only when needed, when the grass begins to wilt, the color dulls and footprints stay compressed. Water only in early morning or evening.

l Sharpen your mower’s blades frequently to get a clean cut, and never mow when the grass is wet. Cut no more than 1/3 of the grass’s length at a time.

l Aerate your soil annually. l Your soil's test results will indicate specific organic fertilizer recommendations.

l Spreaders give uniform fertilizer coverage, although you can fertilize by hand.

l Use herbicides and pesticides responsibly.
