Default Quick Tips for a Strong Lawn

When feeding, there is no require to overdo it. In fact, Overfeeding may destroy grass or cause fast, weak growth that is more liable to pests & illness. Feeding your lawn every 6 to 8 weeks with Scotts Turf Builder Lawn Fertilizer with 2% Iron will help your lawn grow thick & strong. Keep the lawn mower blade sharp to provide a tidy cut. This will reduce water loss from the leaf blades. Raise the mowing height of the lawn mower. Taller grass will shade the soil & roots, reducing stress on the lawn. Return finely chopped grass clippings to the lawn by mowing often. This provides a natural mulch & returns nutrients back to the soil. Reduce traffic on the lawn to prevent soil compaction & reduce stress to the grass. Compacted soils are less able to absorb water. In the event you pick to water your lawn, water deeply & infrequently. Encourage roots to reach deep in to the soil in search of water & your grass will prosper, even in times of drought.
