Mow with a sharp blade. A clean cut allows the grass to recover quickly, maintaining a neat and healthy appearance.
Mow at the correct height. This will not only improve the overall health and appearance of your lawn, it will also reduce the amount of weeds. Fescue lawns should be cut at 2.5–3 inches.
Remove fallen leaves from your lawn. In the fall, lawn grass has a chance to recover from summer heat, loss of moisture and foot traffic. Fallen leaves restrict light and limit recovery.
Aerate and overseed fescue lawns each fall. This helps ensure a thicker, healthier lawn in the spring. We also recommend adding a starter fertilizer to jumpstart the new growth.
A healthy layer of mulch on your flowerbeds reduces weeds and locks in moisture for your trees and shrubs. A 2- to 3-inch layer is usually sufficient for your landscape.
Pruning not only keeps a neat appearance, it removes damaged plant tissue and promotes new, healthy growth.
Irrigate your lawn early in the morning. This helps reduce waste from evaporation and reduces the potential for disease.
Consider adding a rain sensor to your irrigation system. This conserves water and money.
