Lawn Care Planning Calendar

A month-to-month guide for your lawn care maintenance.

SPRING

Installing mulch helps aid in weed prevention, reduces soil erosion, helps maintain moisture and gives the landscape a finished look.

February

Prune ornamental trees such as Crepe Myrtles and cut back ornamental grasses, perennials, and roses.

March

Mowing heights will be set at 3-3.5” for tall Fescue and 2-2.5” for Bermuda and Zoysia to encourage thickening. Begin tip pruning on new plants to encourage growth.

April

We will lower the mower setting one notch to remove excess overwintering leaves. This promotes quicker green-up of the lawn. Fertilize trees and shrubs for improved health.

SUMMER

Check soil moisture periodically. Most lawns need at least one inch of water per week to remain green and actively growing. Core aeration for warm season turf can reduce stress caused by soil compaction and help reduce thatch buildup.

May

We will never remove more than 1/3 of the top growth when mowing. Cutting too short lessens grass root growth and limits the turf’s ability to compete against weeds.

June

We mulch and recycle clippings while mowing to restore important nutrients back into the soil.

July

We keep an eye out for discolored turf, which might indicate stress or an insect/disease problem.

FALL

Fall is the best time to aerate and seed Fescue lawns. Core aeration & seeding is performed to alleviate soil compaction and reestablish new turfgrass.

August

Drought and heat stress can damage your lawn. Signs include wilting, darker, bluish-black areas and leaves that curl lengthwise. Water deeply once or twice a week for 30 to 45 minutes.

September

Fall is great time to plant trees and shrubs.

October

Water your landscape. Adequate moisture enhances your fall applications.

WINTER

Fallen tree leaves removed to prevent smothering your grass. Limbs and debris are removed along with the general clean-up of the landscape performed for the holidays.

November

Continue to mow until the turf stops growing.

December

Walking on frozen grass can damage blades. Stay off grass until frost disappears.

January

Your lawn roots may be active. During dry and windy periods, water your lawn every 14 days. Pruning plans for early spring are developed with homeowners.
