Watering Instructions For NEW Sod: Do not walk on new sod for at least two weeks. The pressure and movement can damage the premature root growth of the grass. Do not exceed fourteen days before first mowing and water frequently after each mowing. In extreme hot conditions raise mower to three inches above ground level. #LawnTipsFromTommy #greenthumb #landscapehelp #summer2016 #tipoftheday #landscaper

Does your lawn is look straggly by midsummer? Don't cave into the urge to fertilize. In fact, it’s best to stop fertilizing about 30 days before your area’s summer temperatures arrive. Applying extra #fertilizer in the heat of the #summer can burn your lawn and create a flush of tender growth that will struggle in the hot summer weather. Never fertilize dormant lawns. wait until they green up in the fall. #Summer2017 #Homegarden #Greenthumb #LawnTipsFromTommy

The hottest days are upon us and the most frequent question we get asked is, "How can I be sure that I'm watering my lawn enough?" The key to this is #timing. The time of day you #water your lawn is very important. You want to avoid watering your lawn in the middle of the day because the water actually magnifies the sun's rays and can do more damage than help. Watering at dusk or at night can be just as damaging due to how easy wet grass is susceptible to mold, mildew and fungus. The best time to water your lawn is between 6-10am. This gives your lawn enough time to soak in the proper amount of water and any access is lost in wind or evaporation. For the best results, a deep watering every three days is recommended. If you're having trouble retaining water in your lawn, keep the blades of your #mower no less than 3 inches above the ground to help retain the moisture. Lastly, if you are seeing burnout areas in your lawn, it could be that your lawn is not retaining #moisture. The opposite of this would be if it rains a lot your grass is very #green.

May is one of the months when your lawn grows the fastest. A good tip would be to make sure your blades on the mower are sharp. If you need to sharpen them don't cut off more that 1/3 of the blade.A sharp blade not only cuts blades clean so grass plants recover quickly, it helps reduce your lawn mowing time. #LawnTipsFromTommy #greenthumb #landscapehelp #spring2017

Try and not do too much heavy yard work in the beginning of spring until the soil dries out. Remove the leaves and fallen debris, and gently rake to separate the grass shoots but avoid heavy foot traffic and hard raking. This can compact or disturb wet soil and damage tender, budding grass shoots. Once the soil is good and dry, give your lawn a good spring cleaning to encourage grass growth and help prevent pests and diseases. #lawntipsfromtommy #lawntip #outdoortip #dailytip #cleanup #springcleaning
