Mowing season lasts for months and requires a lot of work and time to keep it maintained. The Lawn Enforcement will keep your lawn healthy and gorgeous. Our years of knowledge and our state of the art commercial lawn mowers contribute to a healthier lawn by not tearing or beating the grass which allows the clippings to go the base of the grass and provide “free lawn food.”
One of the most important things you can do for your lawn is to feed it when needed. Grass clippings contain the same beneficial nutrients (nitrogen and potassium) as fertilizer does, although in smaller amounts. It does, in fact, help keep your lawn fertilized, but truly not enough for that “amazing plush green yard.” We would still recommend you to contact us so that we can come out and assess your lawn needs by one of our professionals. Then we can schedule a routine fertilization visit so you know your lawn is getting all the nutrients it needs.
Your grass type will be cut at the suggested height for an ideal health and strong growth. When grass is cut is at the suggested height, and before it gets too long, the grass will usually stifle the weeds as long as it’s also fertilized and watered properly.
Grass cut a little higher helps prevent weeds in a couple of different ways:
1) The taller growth shades the soil, keeping it cooler and suppresses the weed seed germination. Once the weed seeds sprout, they don’t have the required sunlight for a hardy growth.
2) Secondly, with a plush full lawn, there are times that weed seeds will not even have the room to make it to the soil.
It is also important to mow your grass when it needs it. That’s when the grass is one-third above the ideal cutting height. Depending on the weather conditions and the time of year, that can mean mowing every week or two, or every four or five days. One of the best ways to preserve a beautiful, healthy yard is to plan a regularly scheduled day each week, twice a week, etc..
Our team will take pride in your mowing and caring for any other lawn services you request on your scheduled day(s) throughout each month. This gives you back quality time and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy it.
