This is the place for Lawn Care Information.You will find information
here on establishing and maintaining a beautiful lawn.
Mowing is the most misunderstood part of lawn care, and the most often incorrectly performed part of lawn care. Far too many people will set their mowers too low and "scalp" the lawn. This leads to thin and dying grass, shallow root systems, and in the long run, NO GRASS at all.
Mowing correctly is essential, but equally essential is that the clippings remain on the lawn. It has great nutrient value and adds humus to the soil. Mowing should be done every five days during the rainy season and every ten to fifteen days during summer.
Weeds are defined as a nuisance plant growing where it does not belong. Controlling weeds in a new or existing lawn is vital to the health and overall appearance of your lawn.
If your lawn does not have many weeds the easiest way to control them is by pulling them by hand. The important part of weeding by hand is to make sure that the entire plant is removed--plant, roots, runners and all.
For heavier weed infestations chemical applications may be required. A pre-emergence herbicide will help control weeds before they have a chance to sprout. Depending on your location apply pre-emergence herbicides in the spring or fall to stop weed seeds from sprouting. Once weeds are established, pre-emergent herbicides will NOT work. For broadleaf weeds such as clover and dandelions, a post-emergent herbicide will be required. These can be applied as a spray or incorporated with a fertilizer as in a weed-n-feed product. But, as always, check with your local garden store to determine which product is right for your lawn.
A beautiful lawn gets it's well manicured look from it's smooth appearance, having no visible signs of weeds rising above the lawn. A weed free lawn holds it's good looks between mowings, and allows you to enjoy the durability and beauty of your lawn
Sometimes the best thing for a beautiful lawn is just a little breathing room. And that's where aeration can help. Lawn aeration removes cores of soil and aids in the removal of thatch from your lawn, making it easier for air, water, and fertilizers to reach your lawn's root zone. This stimulates root growth and creates a healthier, stronger lawn.
Aerating increases the activity of soil microorganisms that decompose thatch.
Aerating increases water, nutrient and oxygen movement into the soil.
Aearating stimulates root growth.
Aearating enhances infiltration of rainfall or irrigation.
Aerating helps prevent fertilizer and pesticide run-off.
Aerating increases the density of the lawn.
Once you have achieved the perfect lawn, after spending hundreds or even thousands of pounds on renovating an existing lawn or installing a new lawn, it just doesn't make sense to let it go back to the way it was because of the failure to water.
Do yourself a favor and spend a little time and money and keep your lawn watered and you will keep the lush grass you spent your hard earned money and valuable time on.
Mother Nature doesn’t always do her part in keeping your lawn well watered. That's where you must step in and pick up where Mother Nature leaves off.
The ideal way to water your lawn is with an Automatic Underground Sprinkler System. This way the watering is done every day that your lawn needs it, and you don't have to drag hoses around, you don't wastewater
by overwatering, plus you water all of the lawn, not just where you happen to set the sprinkler. How many times have you started the sprinkler then forgot to move it? This wastes water by watering only some parts of the lawn while other parts never get water because it's too far to drag the hose. Another common problem in hand watering is that you can only run one or two sprinklers at a time. If you have a very large lawn, it could take all day to water it. Automatic systems will water your lawn at a time of your choosing. when you program the system to come on.
Shrubbery and annuals need to be watered separate from the lawn. An automatic system waters landscape plants in their own zone and only at the times they need it.
Applying pine straw and mulch serves several purposes. It provides temperature control for the soil, helps to retain moisture, reduces weeds, protects plants from disease, and when organic mulch is used, it improves the soil texture, adds nutrients as it decomposes.
Also, light-weight mulch such as dried grass clippings and pine straw can be used temporarily to cover low-growing tender plants to protect them from frost injury.
But, mulches also add to the beauty of the landscape by providing a cover of uniform color and interesting texture to the surface.

SAFETY OF JUST CAN DO
The safety of yourself and those around you is extremely important. Do not cut corners or sacrifice safety, DIY can be dangerous! although you may be thinking I am being over cautious here, I am not. Children and animals for instance very often have no perception of danger until they are missing a limb or worse!
DO NOT PUT YOURSELF OR OTHERS AT RISK!
Balancing on a window ledge is not a good Idea!!!!!
IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND SOMETHING THEN ASK, IT IS LESS EMBARRASSING TO ASK THAN TO EXPLAIN YOUR RESULTING INJURIES TO THE PARAMEDIC!
ONLY USE TOOLS WHICH ARE FIT FOR PURPOSE- DO NOT FOR EXAMPLE OPEN TINS OF PAINT WITH A CHISEL, USE A SCREWDRIVER- A CHISEL MAY WELL REMOVE THE LID FROM THE PAINT EASILY BUT IT WILL JUST AS EASILY STICK THROUGH THE PALM OF YOUR HAND!
NEVER RUSH, TAKE THE TIME TO DO A JOB CORRECTLY, IF A JOB IS WORTH DOING THEN IT IS WORTH DOING CORRECTLY!
