Turf grass care Athens, GA | Watkinsville, GA

Got turf grass? Here are a few simple guidelines to keep in mind while caring for your lawn in between visits from Vision Landscaping & Associates!

Mowing

It’s no surprise here that mowing is one of the simplest forms of caring for your lawn that you can do! Mowing makes for a uniform presentation, will cut back most weeds, and can help maintain healthy plants by allowing them to breathe and soak up much needed sun rays.

How short should you trim your healthy turf grass? This is where it can get tricky, as it varies depending on turf grass types; the taller the grass, the deeper the roots. This can be a good thing especially during a drought, in that the grass roots can feed off of water that is found in deeper soil. For this reason, it’s possible that you should consider raising your mowing height.

Did you know that the amount trimmed from your grass blades can affect its growth and general health? It certainly can! A good general rule to remember is to trim no more than 1/3” off its previous height. Too many times lawns go from out of control to short and neat with no gradual lawn trimming sessions. If you’re guilty of this it’s probably okay once or twice, but keep repeating this and you’ll find yourself with a very unhappy lawn – especially with turf grass!

And finally, one other fun fact that your lawn will love you for: return your clippings! These clippings can be beneficial for your yard by returning nitrogen to the soil and reducing evaporation!

While mowing is an essential step in lawn management, it’s not the only one. There are several other important factors to consider for keeping your yard in tip-top shape. Things such as fertilization and irrigation are not to be overlooked when maintaining your lawn and garden to ensure its health and beauty!
