Frequently Asked Questions About Lawn Care

Knowing your lawn needs and when it is best to apply them can help you create a lawn care schedule that will keep your yard beautiful throughout the year. Below are a few commonly asked questions we receive about lawn care and some of the services that we provide.

When And Why Should I Aerate My Lawn?

Improved air, water, and nutrient movement to your grass can be accomplished using a lawn aerator, a tool with solid spikes, or hollow tines. The issues of soil compaction (an increase in soil density and a decrease in soil volume) can be resolved by aerating the soil of your lawn. Excessive thatch (an excessively thick layer of dried plant debris between the green blades and roots of grass) can also be resolved by aerating the soil. 

Even though it seems like a straightforward technique, optimal aeration calls for exact timing. Depending on the soil, grass type, and usage patterns, different lawn aeration schedules may need to be utilized. Your lawn may require yearly aeration, which the experts at Chris James Landscaping can determine. We can also advise you on the optimal scheduling for your region so your lawn remains healthy and beautiful all year. 

What Is A Soil Test And Why Does My Lawn Need It?

The results of a soil test will reveal whether your soil is acidic, neutral, or alkaline. A soil test may also indicate which nutrients are missing from your soil and how much to apply to compensate for the deficiency. Along with moisture and light, certain test meters may also measure pH. A lawn or grass area should be sampled in the spring or the first few weeks of the fall. 

Sampling in the spring or the beginning of fall will give you enough time to apply fertilizer and lime in the spring or utilize data from the autumn sample to plan for the coming year. The soil beneath your grass will eventually reach the right level, though it may take some time and several additions. A balance of air, organic matter, minerals, and micronutrients that support grass healthy grass growth will soon always be maintained when you call the soil pros at Chris James Landscaping.

Why Should I Overseed My Lawn And When?

For homeowners whose lawns have experienced drought stress, insect or disease damage, or other indicators of decline like thin sparse grass, bare patches, or loss of color, lawn overseeding is a fantastic choice. The most effective way to thicken your lawn and improve its health and appeal is to reseed it with newer, superior turfgrass varieties frequently. The more recent turfgrass varieties can better withstand damage from diseases, insects, and lack of moisture.

Your location will help determine the ideal time to overseed your grass. Late summer to early fall is the perfect period for overseeding in the colder northern climes. While the temperatures aren’t too harsh for the new grass to grow before winter, the soil remains pleasant enough in the fall to encourage germination. Additionally, the soil moisture needed for germination is more favorable.
