CARING FOR NEWLY-SEEDED LAWNS
Freshly-sewn seed can produce a very attractive lawn if the proper practices are followed. The appearance and success of your lawn depends largely upon the care given in the first 4-6 weeks. However, a new lawn cannot be forgotten after this time, and the proper maintenance programs should be followed. Here are some helpful tips to help you on your way.
WATERING SEED: Once your lawn is seeded, immediately water to a depth of 3-4 inches by continuous light watering that does not cause run-off. Daily watering is a must! The seed must not be allowed to dry out. After seed is well established daily sprinklings should give way to a normal watering schedule.
Your new lawn should be planted with a starter fertilizer for quick establishment. This type of fertilizer will be used rapidly and should therefore be followed by a spring and fall fertilization program.
Mow new grass as soon as it is 3 inches tall. Be sure your mower blade is sharp. Set the mower to a height of 2 ½ inches. Continue mowing at this height for the remainder of the season and only remove 1/3 growth at a time.
WEED AND INSECT CONTROL:
Herbicides and insecticides are usually applied in the spring and fall with some controlled applications in the summer. Because of the varying situations and circumstances, it is practical to have a program designed specifically for your type of lawn. We will be happy to design a program for your lawn.
