You should always start with a good cleanup of the yard (raking the ground, picking up small rocks and debris). This work can be done before or after your 1st fertilizer.
Your lawn should preferably be watered in the morning, and requires one inch of water (about 50 minutes) every five days. If case of drought, the lawn will need one inch of water twice a week. To make sure you apply the right amount of water everywhere, we suggest you use a container to properly measure the amount of water your lawn receives. It is important not to over water as it can contribute to the development of lawn diseases.
Throughout the year, it is essential to keep the mowing height to a minimum of two and a half inches. Never remove more than one third of the grass blade at a time. Make sure the blade of your mower is properly sharpened, and never mow the lawn when it is wet.
Once your soil has absorbed the water from the melting snow, you can repair all the damage caused by winter on your lawn.
Small paths of dead grass are often attributable to field mice. We suggest you rake and seed these areas.
In early May, the temperature is ideal for white grubs to return to the surface. If you suspect grub damage (brown patches and lawn that can be pulled up easily), call us immediately.
Early May is one of the best times to germinate new grass seeds. For best results, we suggest using a high-quality seed. Herbionik seeds would be a good choice.
In the spring, mushrooms are found in humid areas. As soon as they appear, before mowing the lawn, we recommend that you remove them by hand and throw them in the trash.
