FAQs and Tips
How should I cut my lawn?
The way you should cut your lawn will vary depending on the time of the year. For the first and last cutting of the year, you should cut your lawn at about 2-1/2 inches. After that, increase the length by 1/4 inch with each cutting until you 3 to 3-1/2 inches.
During the summer, temperatures can reach above 90 degrees. At this temperature, you should cut your lawn at 3-1/2 inches. In late October, decrease the cutting height by 1/4 inch until you get to 2-1/2 inches.
How often should I cut my lawn?
For a healthy and thick lawn, you should cut it about once a week. Do not cut more than 1/3 of grass blade at a time.
How should I trim around my lawn?
Trimming/Weed Whipping should be done the same height as the grass (about 3 inches). Trimming/Weed Whipping below 3 inches will cause crabgrass and other weeds to germinate. Edging should be done in a way so that the cut is not to deep. If the edging is too deep, weed seeds can be brought to the surface.
How often should I water my lawn and how much?
During late fall through early spring, nature will provide all of the necessary moisture that your lawn will need. From April 1st to May 14th, watering is not typically required unless there are severe drought conditions present. From May 15th to June 30th, water your lawn 2/10 of an inch every other day. From July 1st to August 31st, water your lawn 3/10th of an inch every other day. If the temperature is over 85 degrees, cool the grass blades with light watering around noon daily. From September 1st to November 15th, water as needed (not usually needed unless drought conditions present).
We recommend that you do not water your lawn between 5pm and 5am.
