It is important that you decide what work must be
done on what basis, and do it. Watering, fertilization,
pest control, and maintenance should all be done on a regular basis, and
notes should be kept on the whole process. Here are some maintenance steps which you
Soil Test... once per year.
Organic Fertilization... twice per year.
Top Dressing of lawn with compost... every season.
Irrigation... establish a regular program of deep watering on the same days at least
two or three times per week. Watering early in the morning is usually best.
Aeration depends on soil structure and should be done once per year.
Maintenance... Cutting the grass is a very important step. Cutting too short or too long
depends upon the type of lawn and the type of lawn mower.
Use an spraying unit unit to help you spray.
The Mulching Mower
Using a mulching mower is one of the best ways to recycle your grass clippings and feed
the lawn at the same time! Try the newer solar mulching mowers!
