August Lawn Renovations
Despite the typically hot and dry conditions in August, this is the time to think about lawn renovation. The rule of thumb is that if your lawn is 50 percent or more composed of weeds, it is time to renovate.
This process starts with a soil test to find your PH and nutrient levels.
Then moves on to weed elimination using least toxic practices.
Once weeds are gone we can make organic matter and nutrient additions as necessary.
Till or dig in these items and rake the area level, removing rocks, sticks and roots.
After all this, stop in and we will advise you on the best seed for your particular location.
Last but not least, comes watering. Maintain a damp seed bed at least until the grass needs its first mowing.
All of our efforts will be most successful if they are completed by the first or second week in September.
