Quick Lawn Tips

Just a little information for your lawn as we head into winter. If you haven't already seeded those bare or thin spots in your yard you may want to think about getting it out a soon as possible before your window of opportunity runs out. Also this time of the year is great to fertilize your yard as it prepares for the winter. 
As you are mowing your yard this fall try to remember these tips before you park your mower for the winter:

  • Mowing height for October: 3"
  • The height for the final mowing of the season is 2". 
    Grass that is too high during the winter can become diseased.
  • Never remove more that 1/3 of the grass blade. 
    If a mowing is missed; set the mower as high as it will go, then lower and mow again in a couple of days.
  • Use a different mowing pattern each mowing.
  • Sharpen and balance mower blades every 10 mowing hours
