1. The key is to mow high
2 ½" to 3" is the optimal height for a healthy lawn.
2. Never cut more then 1/3 of the grass blade
Cutting anymore puts serious stress on the lawn.
3. Keep your mower blades SHARP!
Sharpening the blade at least once per year at the very minimum helps with a clean cut and again reduces stress on the lawn.
4. Water, Water, Water!
1" of water per week is the ideal amount for lawns. This varies depending on the soil type, slope, and weather among other things, but 1" is a good starting point. If you have an irrigation system, your irrigation contractor should have you set up for around this mark. If you need rain gauges just ask and we can help you out.
5. Try not to water during the day
Watering during high heat and sun, puts extra, unneeded stress on the lawn.
