Yard Tips


Why fertilize?

Fertilizing is essential to achieve a healthy, green, envy of the neighborhood lawn.


When to fertilize?  Early Spring (Feb-Apr)

Lawns wake up hungry in the spring.  Feeding regains your lawns root strength and gets it off to a good start for the growing season.  If there is a history of crab grass apply a combination fertilizer with pre-emergent to control it.


Late Spring (Apr-Jun)

Spring is lunch time for lawns.  Grass is busy and using up stored energy.  With broadleaf weeds actively growing you want to hit it with a combination of fertilizer with broadleaf weed control.  (Weed-n-feed)


Summer (Jun-Aug)

Fall ( Sept-Nov)

Good time to aerate and then over seed or fertilize.



Why Aerate?

Compacted soil prevents from establishing a healthy root system and keeps vital nutrients from reaching the turf roots.  Through aeration, soil becomes less compacted and is exposed to the circulation of air.  Once the soil is aerated, air exchange improves and the soil can easily absorb water, fertilizer and other nutrients.


Why use Mulch?

Adding 2-3 inches of mulch keeps weeds away and reduces water evaporation by up to 70%.  In addition saving you money on watering and time on weeding, along with it just looking fantastic.


Black

If you have more foliage than flowers use dark mulch such as black so it will make the green plants pop.


Brown

Choose a mulch that suits well with the home.  Example brown suits well with tan or red homes.


Red

Adding red mulch works well with warm home colors, orange, tan, or yellow.


Natural

Looks good on any home and absorbs less heat in full sun beds.
