Common Questions about Grass Care

How Long Should I Wait to Mow after an Aeration & Over-Seeding?

The short answer is as long as you can before the grass gets too high (typically 1 week).

Your new lawn will be ready to mow when the new grass plants are higher than the height at which they will normally be maintained. In other words, if you plan to regularly cut the lawn at 2.5”, mow it for the first time when it is about 3” tall. When mowing, follow the rule of thumb of never removing more than 1/3 of the leaf blade at any one time. 

Also remember that it’s very important to keep your mower blades sharp. A dull blade rips and shreds the grass instead of cutting it. Mowing heights should be as follows:  Spring and Fall:  2.5” – 3” and Summer 3” – 4”.


When is the Best Time to Fertilize my Lawn in Macungie?

To reach its full potential, it’s best for the lawn to receive regular fertilization in the Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.


How can I Prevent and Control Weeds in my Lawn?

The first step is to identify which type of weeds are inhabiting your grass. There are three categories of weeds (broadleaf, annual grass, and sedges), and each type requires a different treatment. Plus, certain weeds may be more susceptible to control at specific stages of growth.

Lawn fertilization is a crucial part of our weed control service. Fertilizing your lawn promotes dense, healthy turf that can outcompete weeds.


How can I Establish and Maintain a Lawn in Shady Areas?

First, it’s essential to choose grass varieties that are suited for shade tolerance, such as fine fescues. Improving soil drainage and reducing foot traffic can help mitigate the challenges posed by damp, compacted soil in shady spots. Additionally, pruning nearby trees and shrubs can allow more sunlight to reach the lawn, promoting better grass growth. 

Regular overseeding with shade-tolerant grass seeds, proper fertilization, and moisture management are important. And controlling weeds and pests ensures that the grass can thrive without competition or damage from unwanted intruders.
