Lawn Care

Mowing at the proper height is important to a healthy turf.

The height choice is a combination of the type of grass and season.

Mowing your grass too short can actually cause your turf grass to deteriorate. It needs adequate leaf area to feed itself and keep its root system healthy. It can also increase your chances of weeds when it becomes prone to developing a loss of density and bare spots.

Mowing grass too high creates another set of problems. There will be coarser and fewer plants and matting might take place. The matting provides the type of micro-environment that nurtures disease and rot.

Mowing frequency is your choice.

Healthy Turf specialists will make recommendations based on what is best for the health of your turf grass and your cosmetic preferences.

Many customers select a routine schedule for mowing. You may want to select a plan with the flexibility for our specialists to mow based on your specifications for cosmetic need because variations in weather patterns can accelerate the rate of growth during favorable conditions.

Leaf debris and your healthy turf.

Leaves left covering your turf grass will diminish its capacity to produce food for itself. Leaves should be removed for a healthy lawn in the fall.

Mulch

We will work with you on your color choice to match your landscape color palette. Mulching areas around trees and gardens will help retain moisture and control weeds while creating the well-groomed look you desire.

Aeration

Soil through time and traffic from people and pets can become compacted. Your turf grass is unable to get the oxygen it needs for healthy roots when this occurs. The aeration process will remove small plugs from your soil allowing for better oxygen, water and nutrient flow that will reinvigoration of your turf.

Tip: You can check your lawn for aeration needs by extracting a square foot about 6" deep of your lawn. You may benefit from aeration if the roots are only extending 1 to 2 inches into the soil.
