1. Water Deeply and less often
(This goes for plants, trees and shrubs as well.)
Root training is vital for a healthy lawn. Deep healthy root systems can be encouraged by heavy watering, less frequently. Shallow/frequent waterings will promote shallow root systems which makes the grass more susceptible for disease and increases the chance for weed growth.
2. Sharpen Your Blades
Make sure that your mower blades are frequently sharpened and inspected - this will help keep your grass blades green and reduces the chance of tip brown out.
3. Mulch your grass clippings back into your lawn
The clippings will help with water retention and as the clippings quickly breakdown they provide vital nutrients to the soil as they decompose.
4. Aerate in the spring and fall
This helps establish a healthy root system. It breaks down compacted soil which allows oxygen, nutrients and water to reach deep roots.
5. Cut at the proper height
A healthy height is three inches. If your grass height gets to be too tall we do not recommend cutting more than 1/3 of the blades height at any given time. Cutting more than 1/3 at a single mow will increase the chance of disease and brownout.
