Before you pick a grass seed, it is important to know how much sun it will get, its access to water, and how much traffic will go across the lawn each season.
The same goes for your lawn. If you know there is no rain in the forecast, go give the lawn a drink to help it get through the hot days.
It is much better for your lawn to cut a little off each week than cut it in half every few weeks.
The less stress on the grass, the better it can grow.
Thatching removes all of the dead stuff at the surface of your lawn which when done along with overseeding, allows the seeds to easily make a home in the soil.
Doing both of these services once a year is crucial for most lawns.
We cut our lawns well before they have the chance to reseed themselves. In order to have a healthy lawn, it is important to introduce new seeds each year.
