Maintaining the Health of Your Grass with Smart Watering Practices
A healthy, green lawn is definitely a satisfying sight for any outdoor lover at this time of year. The lush appearance and crisp edged cuts are an outward indication that the homeowner cares to present their best to the neighborhood. Every plant on earth needs a certain amount of water to keep it healthy and thriving. Turf grass requires more water than trees, shrubs and other plants because its roots are shallower than larger plants.

If there’s a tree in your yard that’s dead, dying, diseased, or poses a potential risk, you probably have plans to remove it. Grinding the tree stump that’s left behind will improve the appearance of your yard. However, after stump grinding, you’re left with a hole full of wood chips. When you lose a tree, it can take its toll on the aesthetics of your outdoor living space. Suddenly, there’s an empty spot where there was once an abundance of life.
YOUR SPRING LAWN CARE SERVICE INCLUDES: Application of a slow-release fertilizer, pre-emergent crabgrass control and weed control. A little rain or late snow will work the material into the ground over the next few weeks.
