Tip #1: Watering
During dry periods water in the morning 2-4 times per week, typically 30-60 minutes per area. Check sprinklers while running often, for patterns and/or broken heads. Dry, brown areas may need more water, soggy areas a little less.
Tip #2: Core Aeration
Removes small cores of soil and thatch which breaks up soil compaction and removes some thatch. Recommend doing this right before power raking. Aeration is a very important part of lawn care. (Not offered by Leisure Lawn at this time).
Tip #3: Rake Leaves
Rake up leaves often in the fall and make sure all leaves are removed before snowfall.
Tip #4: Power Raking
Power raking or de-thatching should be done every 3-4 years, normally in April. Leaving clippings down or mulching does not significantly add to the thatch layer. Power raking is a very important part of lawn care. (Not offered by Leisure Lawn at this time).
Tip #5: Mowing
Mow frequently, sharpen blades twice a year, do not scalp lawn, cut at 2-3 inches, use a mulching mower. (Most mowers can be converted.)
