Battling drought can be a challenge, but it’s never impossible. There are three key components to keeping a healthy lawn starting with setting your lawn mower to the proper length. We recommend no lower than three inches and cutting consistently to the point where you’re not chopping off more than one quarter of an inch of blade growth every time you mow. Ideally, you’ll want to designate one day a week (weather permitting) to mow your lawn.
Watering frequently is also essential to maintaining a vibrant lawn. Don’t wait around for the rain to take care of things. Obviously, if you’re experiencing heavy downpours on a regular basis, you can put away your sprinkler, but just make sure your lawn drinks at least one inch of water each week during growth season.
Finally, you’ll want to invest in a program to fertilize your lawn and combat weeds. Think of fertilization as a source of nutrition and weed prevention as a vaccine. These analogies will help remind you that both are good investments for your lawn. At LawnCare by Walter, we offer six treatments per season during the spring, summer, and fall months. Treatments are tailored to your lawn’s needs and include fertilization, weed control, and crabgrass control. They are applied by state-licensed technicians who use environmentally friendly products.

Snow on the grass adds moisture to the soil and benefits growth in the spring. It can, however, lead to problems if it becomes packed down from things like too much foot traffic.
Caring for your lawn and landscape is crucial during the fall months to ensure vibrancy in the spring.
