Better care

Master the art of lawn care with these basic tips.

  • When is the best time to plant grass seed?

    For cool season grasses, the ideal planting times are late fall or early spring. For warm season grasses, plant in early spring for optimum seed performance.

  • How long does it take for seed to germinate?

    Given favorable planting conditions, most seed will germinate within approximately 14 days of planting. However, this will depend largely on the type of seed you are planting.

  • How often should I water my lawn?

    During the germination period, water should be applied often enough to keep the top 1/4 inch of soil moist. Once the seed has germinated, maintain a consistent watering schedule, taking into account current weather conditions. Over-watering can cause grass disease problems, so soil saturation monitoring is very important to maintaining your lawn.

  • When should I water my grass?

    The best time to water your grass is anytime between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. You should try to avoid evening watering, if possible.

  • Why should I aerate?

    Reducing the compaction and loosening the soil is very important in ensuring proper root oxygenation and development.

  • How often should I aerate my lawn?

    Aerate at least once per year during the growing season for your particular grass type.

  • If I have applied weed and feed, how soon after the application can I seed or plant?

    It is best to read the label, though a general rule of thumb is to wait 5-6 weeks. You should never plant immediately following an application of weed and feed as the chemicals stay in the soil for quite some time and are too strong for seedling survival.

Recommended mowing heights

Recommended mowing heights

Please check packaging for the recommended mowing height for your grass. The heights listed here are meant to serve as general guidelines. Cutting off more than a third of the blade at once will shock the plant. During hot summer months, cut your lawn higher than the recommended rate.
