Frequently Asked Questions About Lawn Care in Allendale

We are always ready to give our clients more information about the ways we can assist them and the services we offer.  Below are a few of our most recently asked questions:

When is the best time to fertilize my lawn?

Fertilizing your lawn is a fairly easy process and you can do it on your own with the right tools. However if you want the best results we recommend following the instructions provided by your lawn care service. If you just moved in, find a professional that can help you decide what’s the best product for your lawn and the best timing to proceed. In fact different kinds of grass need specific treatments and the weather can greatly influence this process as well. As a general rule early spring and fall are the seasons recommended to fertilize cool-season grasses. Warm-season grasses usually grow better when fertilized in late spring or early summer. 

How can I control weeds in my lawn?

There are different ways to control weed growth in your lawn depending on your needs. Of course prevention is always the best solution and a general recommendation is to take good care of your grass. In fact watering, mowing and fertilizing regularly can prevent invasive species from spreading. If that’s not enough you can also prevent weeds from growing by applying pre-emergent herbicides before the seeds sprout. If it’s too late for that don’t worry, there are different ways to control or eliminate weed spreading in your yard. To eradicate pre-existing and overgrown weeds you can use post-emergent herbicides. Another important factor in choosing the best control solutions for your lawn is to find out what kind of weeds are affecting your garden. This way you can use the right product to target your specific kind of problem, increasing the chances your intervention will be successful.

Is it necessary to aerate my lawn?

It’s almost always a good idea to aerate your soil, unless it’s sandy and it drains well. Aeration is highly recommended especially if you have thatch buildup or hard compacted soil. There are great benefits coming from aeration, like helping roots grow deeper and stronger, improving drainage and soil compaction, and overall improving your lawn beauty, health and strength. The way this process works is creating small holes in the soil to increase water, air and nutrient penetration. It also improves the efficiency of fertilizers. Normally you should aerate your loan a couple of times a year, especially heavy clay soil, while for sandy ones one time should be enough. 

How Often Should A Healthy Lawn Be Mowed?

Of course the rate your grass grows and the length you desire it to be are the best indicator to determine when to cut your grass. As a general rule during the growing season mowing once a week should be enough to keep it healthy. The rest of the year you can reduce the frequency to every other week and still obtain good results. Make sure you don’t cut your grass too short to prevent it from turning brown or pale, because it can take a long time for it to recover to a  healthy green color.
