Lawns, doing their job!
Whether you have a new lawn, or are caring for a long established one, mowing it is more than cosmetic. Leaving your lawn looking crisp and clean, mowing promotes new growth and density – a thriving “green carpet”.
Sun, water and fertilizer affect how fast your grass grows. During normal conditions, you can mow the lawn a bit shorter and your lawn will re-grow with little stress. But during the peak warm season, keep the grass on the longer side to shade the soil. This will allow the lawn to retain moisture, which reduces watering.
Should water restrictions be imposed, when you are allowed to water, water thoroughly to maintain deep root growth. Only 1 to 2 inches of water each week is needed by your lawn to stay healthy.
