Turf Tips: Lawn Maintenance

The following tips are answers to a few of the most frequently asked questions regarding the everyday maintenance of a lawn. We hope that by following these few tips as closely as possible, you will allow your lawn to achieve its highest potential, combined with the services that we provide. 

Watering Tips

Is is important to note that the best time of the day to water is between the hours of 5 am - 10 am, watering in the evening tends to leave the turf moist for a prolonged period of time which can induce fungal activity and eventually lead to diseased turf. However, if this timetable does not fit into your demanding schedule, then you should water when possible watering each area of your lawn for a period of 25 - 30 minutes each, every 2 - 3 days is usually a safe interval depending upon rainfall amounts and the climate.  As the climate cools in late September, watering can often be reduced to as little as once per week.

Mowing Tips

A rule of thumb is to keep the lawn at a height of about 2 ½ inches and mow frequently enough so that you do not remove more than 1/3 of the leaf blade at any one mowing. During the Summer you may even maintain the lawn at 3 inches to allow the leaf blade to retain more moisture and properly defend itself from heat / drought stress.

Be sure to mow with a sharp mower blade, the cut should be clean with no shredding or tearing of the grass blade. If the lawn grows extremely long, perhaps due to your absence, do not cut it back all at once, this will lead to shock and can severely weaken, or even kill the lawn. Cut it back in 2 or 3 separate mowings, approximately 3 to 4 days apart from one another.

Mosquito Control and Tick Control

          Our Mosquito Control and Tick Control Programs are two different programs (Mosquito Liquid and Tick Granular) and designed to effectively control BOTH pest problems. As you already know, Mosquitoes are typically airborne and ticks typically live in the vegetation. So how can you expect ONE method of application to suffice for TWO totally different insect habitats?


          When pricing for similar programs, keep in mind that overall, both Lawn-Pro’s insect programs (Liquid and Granular) are better suited for each job AND just as cost effective when you total both cost per season and compare to one service treats all pricing.


          Please call our office for a FREE Price Quote and add this service to your program for better control of BOTH pests.

Fall Aeration and Overseeding

            This service starts at the end of August and runs through the entire Fall season. The process involves the mechanical extraction of small cores from the topsoil throughout your lawn. The cores are approximately a half inch in diameter and 1 to 3 inches in depth. Immediately after the core aeration is complete, a heavy application of seed is applied throughout the topsoil and into the freshly exposed cores. The seed quickly settles in the topsoil and inside the cores to create the perfect contact area of seed to soil which provides for healthy germination. Along with a thorough mix of seed throughout the lawn, this will thicken and improve the overall texture of the lawn. Core Aeration will also enhance irrigation to the root zone and control or minimize most disease activity. The cores left behind will dry and slowly disappear after several mowings


         We hope that you enjoy the fast, courteous service that has made Lawn-Pro one of the leading, service oriented lawncare companies in the area.
