No two yards are exactly the same. That's why you need to have a very good understanding of what your yard should have to keep it healthy. First, make sure to do a soil pH test each year. This can tell you exactly what pH balancers and/or fertilizers to purchase. Remember that what you do to get started will determine how your lawn will look for the rest of the year! Basic soil pH testing is a FREE at our store, and we also offer a comprehensive soil test for a small fee. Just bring in a small ziploc bag of soil to get started.

Knowing how to best mow your yard is another important step keeping it looking its best. Make sure your blades are professionally sharpened and balanced. A dull blade increases the pull on the blade of grass as it trims, leaving a larger "tip-burn" that turns light brown. By keeping your blades sharp, this effect is minimized and your grass will be greener.
.
DON'T OVER-FERTILIZE! It's easy to go heavy on fertilizer, but that can actually kill off new grass and damage existing grass! Ask as about the best products, schedules and strength for your yard, including ph conditioner, weed control and fertilizer.

Lawn Care Tip: Soil Testing
.
You can buy the best seed and the best fertilizer and water your lawn perfectly, but unless you know what kind of seed to plant, which fertilizer to spread and how much water to use, it may not matter. Successful lawns begin with a comprehensive soil test each year. By analyzing the elements in your soil like nitrogen, phosphorus, and more, we can help you know exactly what to do - and by when. Ask us about soil testing. It's the best thing you can do for your yard.
