    Mowing

    In the Spring season, most breeds of grass look best when mowed at about 1.5-2 inches from the ground. Be sure you leave behind those nutrient-rich clippings to fortify the soil.

    While a regular mower does a great job with most grass, there are a couple of types- like Bermuda grass- that respond best when cut a bit lower to the ground. For projects like this, a reel mower is the way to go. If you’re not sure what to use on your lawn, let our experts help you pick the right equipment.

    Watering

    We all know keeping your yard watered is essential in drought-prone regions like north Texas. However, did you know that less is more when it comes to your irrigation schedule?

    You can get away with watering as little as twice per week, as long as you water deeper. This means you either leave the sprinklers on a bit longer, or take some extra time with your hand-held sprayer, to be sure the soil is thoroughly saturated.

    Fertilizing

    Speaking of hand-held sprayers, they not only give you more precision for hydrating dry patches, but they can also be used to fertilize your lawn. Liquid fertilizers and insecticides can be mixed in with the water as you spray.

    This is a great way to spot-treat weeds and ant beds, or to add some nutrients to a pallet of new grass. Be sure you’re fertilizing mid-season, when your grass is at the height of its growth cycle.
