Our 18 years of experience have taught us a wealth of knowledge on yard care!

We are ready to share our secrets with you whenever you request it.

1. Mowing. When it comes to mowing, never perform it excessively, in terms of how much grass you remove at a single mowing session. If you want optimum results you should mow thoroughly and at the right height (never cutting more than one-third of the grass, in height, at one time).  If you skip mowing a couple of times, never try to compensate by mowing really low. Some commonly used grass types such as Tall Fescue and Kentucky bluegrass both do well between 2.5” and 3.0” in height.

2. Watering. When you water make sure you do it thoroughly. Repeated, light watering performed too often is destructive for your lawn. It causes the grass roots to grow shallow and thus your grass to be frail.

3. No More Crabgrass. If you simply have had it with annoying crabgrass growing everywhere, despite your constant care, we recommend you apply a pre-emergent herbicide before seed germinating season (between March15th and April 1st).

4. Fertilizing. Your method of fertilization is extremely crucial, since it determines whether or not your yard is environmentally friendly.  Correct amounts, as well as correct types of fertilizer are the two factors to consider. Excess quantities of used fertilizer can be drained into the surrounding ecosystem and create devastating site-effects. Also super soluble fertilizers, such as urea and ammonium nitrate, penetrate the soil quicker and increase its acidity, causing plants to have shorter life. Applying a slow-releasing nitrogen fertilizer, two or three times during the autumn, is the way to go.

5. Aerating. For those of you debating whether performing aeration is worth your while, we say: “of course it is!” Aerating helps roots grow deeper, it helps fertilizers reach the roots and it makes watering more effective. When you decide to aerate, (which should be once annually, sometime during the fall), make sure you water your lawn the day before. If you don’t want to spend the money buying aerating tools you can rent them, and when you do, make sure you choose the kind that actually removes plugs form the soil. Once those plugs are removed, after aerating, we recommend you break them up and mix them with fertilize. Watering once the whole process is complete is a great idea.>>

6. About Seeding. In order to ensure complete and healthy germination, solid roots and proper nutrition for your grass, we recommend you “over-seed” once annually during the beginning of autumn. “Over-seeding” is simply the addition of seed over already grown grass. The choice of seed is of course important and we recommend using Tall fescue which requires less maintenance than Kentucky bluegrass and lasts much longer than Rye grass. For maximum results you can roll the over-seeded areas with a water-weighted roller.
