Early spring tips

With the warmer weather this is a great time to get out in the yard and clean-up any leaves and debris that may have collected over the winter. We are making applications and any rain or snow is beneficial.

Starting the 2016 season

With the milder weather, we have begun to make our fertilizer and pre-emergent crabgrass control applications. Weather permitting, we should have the crabgrass control applied by the 3rd week of April. For you technical buffs, we base our pre-emergent timing on the Growing Degree Day model provided by Michigan State University.

Mowing Heights

There is always a tendency to keep lawns short, maybe to mimic a golf course, or just a preference.  Low mowing heights in the spring helps clean-up debris.  Longer mowing heights in summer heat will better shade soil to conserve moisture, the longer the turf the deeper the root system.

Keep your mowing height at 2 1/2 to 3 inches throughout the mowing season. Lawns require approximately 1″ of water per week in order to maintain a lush green lawn, more during hot, dry periods. Return your grass clippings to the lawn to help recycle the nutrients, providing  a green lawn for a longer period of time. Do not allow grass to clump and smother the turf.

Check the Web for your turf grasses proper mowing height.

Mulch Your Beds at Any Time

If you take the time to mulch your beds. this not only looks good, but can save the water that our landscapes get from rain or watering.  It will also reduce weeds and the Hardwood mulch will improve the soil health when it breaks down.  Hardwood is the most widely used; there is also Cedar, Cypress and the Red & Black Cypress and pine bark to mention the most common.
