Lawn Care Tips: Mowing/Watering

Greenscape has been caring for lawns since 1987, and we have a number of lawn care maintenance tips.  Contact us today for a free consultation and estimate or call us at (860) 669-1880 for lawn care advice. We love to talk lawns.



•   When mowing your lawn, your grass should be cut with the blades adjusted high – we

     suggest three inches.

•   Tall grass shades out weeds and better tolerates stress from disease or lack of water.

•   Mower blades should be sharpened regularly.

•   Lawns benefit from frequent, regular mowing, removing no more than 1/3 of the grass

    height at one time.

•   Mow at least weekly, unless growth slows due to dry conditions.

•   Never mow when grass is brittle from heat and drought stress.



•  Turf requires a minimum of one inch of water per week

•  Early morning or late afternoon is the best time to water.

•  Avoid watering mid-day or on hot, windy days, when the chance of evaporation is high.

•  Lawns need to be watered deeply so that the water penetrates to the root system.


General Information

•  Your lawn needs plenty of sun, at least five to six hours a day, and will have shallow

   roots when grown in the shade.

•  Tree roots also weaken turf, since they rob the soil of water and nutrients.

•  Soil in Connecticut tends to be acidic, so soil testing to determine pH is strongly

   recommended. Lawns will generally benefit from lime.
