Mowing #TurfTips

simply green leaf header

lawnCare1Happy August! With high heats still continuing and scattered storms throughout the summer, your grass is most likely growing at an incredible pace. Do you feel like you need to mow every day? This could mean that you aren’t mowing the most effective way possible. Did you know? There is an actual “Art of Mowing”. In today’s post, we have included a few #trustytips to help you make the most out of mowing your lawn.

Cut your lawn and try to avoid tearing your grass.  Mower blades must be sharp or instead of cutting your lawn you will be tearing your lawn. If your leaf blades have brown tips 2-3 days after you mow, could be your mower blades need to be sharpened.

Remember it’s all about the “Rule of thirds.” Mow your lawn at least every 7 days in the growing season. Never mow more than one-third of the grass leaf at a time.

To catch or not to catch? If you are mowing at the correct height every 7 days, you do not need to catch your grass clippings. Clippings contain beneficial nutrients for your lawn and do not build harmful thatch.

Change it up! Change your mowing direction each time you mow. This ensures a more even cut and grass blades will be less likely to develop into a set pattern.

Mowing Height matters. Mowing height is extremely important. Know your grass type and mow at the correct height, depending on the time of the year.

How to Combat a Weed Infested Lawn

simply green leaf header

aerationAre weeds marring your otherwise beautiful lawn this summer? Simply Green Lawn Care can help. Our turf care experts manage unsightly weeds with several techniques and high quality products.

  • Post-emergents: These products control existing weeds and may be used as spot treatment during the summer months.
  • Pre-emergents:  Pre-emergents prevent weeds from appearing in your lawn. These products are typically applied in the spring, fall, and winter and are not a recommended treatment during summertime.
  • Fertilizer: By encouraging a healthy, lush lawn, fertilizer stifles weeds and other unwanted growth. The summer months are the ideal time for controlled release fertilization.
  • Core Aeration: As with fertilization, aeration encourages a healthy lawn. By removing small soil cores from your lawn, aeration allows water, oxygen, and nutrients to flow deep to the roots of the turf. Your lawn’s subsequent growth will discourage weeds from attempting to budge in.

Summer Lawn Care Tips

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The rain your turf has endured has finally subsided a bit here in Atlanta.  The past couple of months you were thrilled that we saw regularly scheduled weekend showers to water your lawn but now it’s high and intense heat.  The heat is here just in time to host your summer get-togethers.  Now that the rain has subsided, is your lawn ready to withstand the little league team parties, sack races and barbeques?

Maintaining the lawn is an ongoing process. Summer turf care in Atlanta certainly requires us to have patience. Now that temperatures will be into the 90’s routinely, the color may fade and it will take longer for the turf to recover from lawn games and traffic.

Keep these simple Turf Tips in mind for your Atlanta lawn:

  • Water early and water deeply (about 1 inch).  If you water later in the day a small amount, most of the water will just evaporate.  DIY TIP: repurpose a clean tuna can as a water gauge while you’re watering.  When you have an inch of water in it, you’ve watered adequately.
  • Raise your mower blade.  Taller grass is more heat and drought tolerant.
  • Resist the urge to fertilize during these high temperatures. You might burn your lawn.
  • Consider stepping stones for high traffic areas.
  • Mulch an area for use as a designated pet area. It should reduce those familiar brown spots.

Following these Turf Tips can save you time and money- keeping you in the green. If you have any questions or need any advice on summer lawn care – contact us today at 770-923-0387, or click here to request a FREE estimate. Be sure to leave a review with us on Yelp and follow along on Facebook and Twitter!
