To get a better lawn, it is important to implement effective weed control, cultural practices and proper fertilization. Weed control usually involves using herbicides or other products to control the growth of weeds. Cultural practices such as mowing, aerating and overseeding can help promote healthy turfgrass growth and reduce weeds. Fertilizing is also important to promote healthy turfgrass growth and keep weeds at bay. Different types of fertilizer should be used depending on the type of grass, soil conditions and climate. It is important to follow directions carefully when using products for weed and pest control. Regular maintenance such as mowing, watering and fertilizing can help keep a lawn healthy and weed-free. By taking these steps, you will be well on your way to having a better lawn.
Grass needs several necessary elements to grow. It requires healthy, nutrient-rich soil with adequate water and sunlight. Grass also needs macro nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, as well as micro nutrients available to thrive. Proper mowing techniques and other cultural practices can also ensure a healthy, lush lawn. Mowing grass on a regular basis helps it to remain healthy and thick. It also encourages the growth of deeper roots, which can help the grass survive during periods of drought. Finally, a consistent fertilization schedule is important for maintaining a healthy lawn. Fertilizer can provide the grass with extra nutrients that may not be available in the soil. With these elements, grass will be able to grow and flourish.
One of the best ways to tell what kind of grass you have is by inspecting its leaf blades. Different kinds of grass will have different characteristics in the way their leaves look and feel. Look at the growth patterns, does it spread and grow horizontally, like Bermuda grass? Does it grow more in clumps vertically, like Tall Fescure? Sometimes it can be difficult to identify the type of grass you have, so consulting with a local lawn care professional might be necessary. They will be able to identify your grass and inform you of the best ways to take care of it.
In the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States, Fescue should be seeded in the fall when temperatures begin to cool down. By seeding Fescue in the fall, you will ensure that your lawn will look healthy and lush come springtime. Additionally, it is important to prepare the soil beforehand. Loosen up any compacted areas and rake the soil to create a level surface. This will help the seed make direct contact with the soil and increase the likelihood of successful germination. After seeding, water regularly and keep the area moist until the seedlings are established. Following these steps will ensure a beautiful lawn of Fescue come spring.
Seeding fescue can be beneficial in a few situations. It is ideal for over seeding an existing lawn to thicken it up, to repair a damaged lawn from harsh weather, or as a complete cover for new construction. Fescue is typically seeded in the fall when temperatures are mild and the soil is moist. When seeding, it's important to use a quality seed blend and spread it evenly over the desired area. A soil test should be done before seeding to ensure the proper nutrients are present for a successful germination. After the seeds have been spread, the soil should be gently raked and watered, taking care not to wash away the seeds. The water should be applied to keep the seedbed moist while the seeds are germinating, but not so much that it causes soil erosion or washes away the seed. Once the seeds have sprouted, the water should be cut back and applied only as needed. With proper care and nutrient levels, fescue can provide a beautiful lawn for years to come.
While we don’t necessarily recommend seeding Bermuda grass, if you do it is best done in the spring, particularly for those living in the mid-Atlantic region. It is important to note that this grass will not grow well in cooler weather, so it is important to wait until the temperatures are consistently warm before planting. When the soil temperature reaches the mid-60s, it is then safe to begin planting. Additionally, Bermuda grass should be planted when there is plenty of rainfall expected in order to help ensure it will take root and grow properly. Careful consideration should be taken when deciding the timing of seeding Bermuda grass, as planting it too late could result in a weaker stand. It is best to sow the grass before mid-May in order to ensure success.
Here at Canopy we typically do not recommend seeding Bermuda grass. If you already have Bermuda grass established in your lawn a more effective way to achieve greater density is cultural practices like aerating and top-dressing with organic material. Bermuda grass spreads and develops density through stolons and rhizomes. If you have ever looked at Bermuda grass you may have noted the “runners”, horizontal stems on the ground. These are stolons, and the grass spreads this way, with roots at nodes along the stem. Cutting these stolons promotes new growth and increased nodes, which means the grass will increase in density and area.
This is the most important layer for your lawn. When homes are built the land is graded, which results in the loss of the topsoil layer. Then the property is either seeded or sodded, which means the grass doesn’t have much to work with. Other lawn care companies solve for this by applying a ton of fertilizer and herbicides, at Canopy we focus on restoring your soil so your lawn can be sustainable for years to come.
