How do I keep my lawn green all summer?

Here’s how….Water your lawn 3 times per week for one hour per area.  The best times to water are early in the morning or late afternoon.  The worst time to water (because it causes fungus to kill your lawn) is between 7pm and 2am.  Water after 7pm is very bad for the lawn.

We provide an Organic aeration application that will double the effectiveness of your watering.  Organic aeration allows more water to penetrate and be retained in the soil where the grass roots grow.

What do I do about Bare Spots In Lawns?

Fir year customers find that weeds are reduced in their lawn, both crabgrass and broadleaf weeds.  This may result in a number of bare spots where the weeds once grew.  The best solution for these bare spots is an over-seeding in late summer and fall seasons.  Many Lawn Science customers have found the existing grass will fill in these bare spots over a period of time.  If the bare areas are large or abundant, over-seeding is the quickest way to thicken the lawn.

When can I mow my lawn?
