I’m not sure when the best time is to water my lawn.

Will fertilizer help my lawn?

Yes, to answer your question quickly. To stay healthy, lush, and green, all lawns require the right fertilizers. Your grass must expend a lot of energy to establish strong, healthy roots and green growth. Because most soils are deficient in nutrients, fertilization is critical. Plants require six primary nutrients to thrive. The first three elements – carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen – are obtained from air and water. The other three elements – nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium – must be obtained from the soil or applied fertilizers. Nitrogen aids in the production of new growth in plants. Phosphorous promotes root and seed growth. Potassium increases the general health and vitality of plants.

Is it better to water numerous times for a shorter period of time or once for a longer period of time?

Water is deeper, lasts longer, and occurs less frequently. This promotes the growth of deeper, more robust roots.
Watering too frequently causes roots to grow close to the surface. Why should they dig deeper into the earth in search of water when you give it to them every day?

What height should I mow my lawn at?

Keep your mower blades sharp and don’t trim more than one-third of the existing grass blade for a healthy lawn. Blades that are rusted or dull can shred grass, leaving it more susceptible to disease. Lawns can be mowed to roughly 2.5 inches in the spring, when grass is growing rapidly, and clipped more frequently. Grass should be mowed to around 3.5-4 inches in the summer to shade the roots and reduce drought stress. Mulching your grass cuttings will supply more nutrients to your yard.

What are the finest lawn mowing techniques for maintaining a healthy lawn?

Proper mowing techniques are critical for the health and preservation of your grass. Too short mowing weakens grass root systems, thins the lawn, reduces drought and disease resilience, and promotes weed population. Set your mowing height for the spring to at least 3 inches, and don’t cut off more than 1/3 of the grass blade per mowing.

Should I pick up my clippings or let them fall to the ground?

Blowing grass clippings into the lawn is better for your lawn since they decay and restore nutrients to the soil.

What exactly is “Core Aeration,” and how can I tell if my lawn needs it?

Aeration loosens the soil, allowing more air, water, and fertilizer to reach the grass roots. Aerating your lawn also helps to reduce thatch, relieve compacted soil, and stimulate root development, all of which contribute to a healthy lawn. Once a year, this is one of the best things you can do for your lawn.
