How to have a "golf course" lawn

Updated: Aug 3, 2019

Step 1 - De-thatching. The process of De-thatching removes unwanted grass material from the top layer of soil allowing air, water and nutrients to readily seep in and feed the grass root system.

Step 2 - Overseeding. Not many people know this but overseeding your lawn keeps fresh new grass growing to replace the dead grasses that leave yellow or barren spots. You'll need to overseed at-least once a month.

Step 3 - Fertilizing. Depending on the type and species of grass on your lawn, you'll need to fertilize it once a month to make sure the root system has enough nutrients to survive the unpredictable weather. Sudden heat or cold can leave the lawn looking pale and fertilizing ensures the grass will recover quicker!

Step 4 - Controlling Weeds & Crabgrass. Crabgrass is a perennial weed grass that looks light green in color and sprouts up in bunches. It can take over a lawn and kill the healthy grass if not kept in check. All weeds are competing for nutrients on your lawn so regularly screening and extracting them from the roots is the only way to ensure a healthy looking lawn.

Step 5 - Watering. Depending on the time of year, most lawns require watering anywhere from once a week to twice daily! Getting a handle on the watering schedule can be a bit frustrating but the results are well worth the wait.

Step 6 - Mowing. When mowing the grass, make sure to use a bag and dispose of the clippings as they may contain weed seeds. Contrary to popular belief, those clippings don't turn into fertilizer over time. They will dry up and turn into thatch that blocks sunlight and nutrients from passing through.

If all this sounds like a lot of work, well that's because it is. The good news is that we provide all the above services to our regular maintenance clients who ask for the the lawn care package.
