Maintaining a great lawn in Ocean County requires work, but with the right tools and information, it is possible. Here are some lawn care tips provided by the experts at Home Turf Yard & Home Maintenance:
It is always best to water your lawn early in the morning to avoid burning to law or lawn fungus. On an average week, a lawn need about 1” – 1 ½” of water.
The optimum height for grass is 2 ½”- 3 ½”. The maximum length to cut off each week is 1/3” at most. Make sure your blades are sharp so that you don’t tear or stress the grass blade. It is best to use a mulching mower with FREE fertilization.
Here are some tips for each month. During April, focus on crabgrass and weed control. In May, focus on broadleaf and fertilizer. In June, focus on crabgrass. In July, handle insect control. In September, use fertilizer and seeding. By November, focus on winter fertilizer and lime application.
Aeration allows the seed to get deep into the ground. Always water and air to deeply penetrate seed for optimal growth. Thatching involves removing the dead grass close to the root of the grass blades. The best time to thatch, aerate and seed is in the spring and fall when temperatures are cool.
