Notes to Keep Your Lawn at Its Best:

  • Grass should be cut at least once a week at an average heights of 1″ to 2″. Clippings must be caught or cleaned up the same day.
  • Watering should start when first warm weather comes, usually in May. Make sure to water after a week of no rain. Deep waterings are the best for an established lawn, usually 1 to 3 times a week. Newly seeded lawns should be watered twice a day, lightly so that the seed does not wash away.
  • Thatching should be done at least once every 2 to 3 years to remove buildup of thatch. A power rake does a fine job in removing the thatch.
